Fall Flowers

A few months ago we started our Do-It-Yourself (DIY) blogging series with the basics of floral design. In honor of the Fall season, we thought it would be a great idea to learn how to design our own Fall floral arrangements just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. Themed floral arrangements are the perfect compliment to any seasonal table design, get started on yours today!

Simply Pumpkin 

If one of your favorite things about Fall is the pumpkin, then this is the design for you! In order to create this beautiful fall centerpiece, you'll first need to head to the pumpkin patch. After you have selected a pumpkin, take it home and cover it with matte black spray paint. Once the paint is dry, use a paring knife to scrape Fall foliage designs into the pumpkin, then hollow it out and fill with orange and yellow gerber daisies or flowers of choice. 

Fall Flowers

This dahlia and spider mum design will add the perfect amount of color to your Fall table. All that is needed to create this arrangement are white and pink dahlias, golden spider mums, and Fall foliage. Gather into a wooden vas and scatter leaves around the base for this beloved Fall arrangement. 

The Colors of Fall 

Our last arrangement is perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday! Purchase a white, footed ceramic vase and arrange roses, tulips, and protea in a visually appealing manner. We recommend selecting shades of red, yellow, orange, and purple.
