Wow, it has been such a busy summer. I can’t believe it is already October. With Halloween just around the corner, we are creating some beautiful fall arrangements. The colors of fall are some of my favorites. During our opening year, we participated in the Sandy Springs Festival – it was just a few weeks ago. Our display consisted of some very fun pumpkin arrangements. The pumpkins were transformed into vases. Martha Stewart has also used this idea.

The basic instructions are as follows:

  • Carve the top of the pumpkin
  • Clean out the inside, scoop out the seeds
  • Place a water-proof container inside
  • Put wet Oasis into the container
  • Arrange flowers

I don’t have a picture of the arrangements that we made handy, but here is one from the web:
