Modern Cornucopia on Silver Serving Tray

Follow these easy steps to create this gorgeous fall centerpiece. 

Supplies

Assorted dahlias/ persimmons (available at local market or persimmon branches) / yard clippings (we used vines, maple leafs, boxwood, sage, dusty miller and berry branches all foraged) / ornamental or edible cabbage / thistle (local market) / wet floral foam (online or local craft store) / one large tray for your arrangement so you have plenty of room to work at least 12 inches across and 6 inches wide.

Step 1

Start by covering one half of your serving tray or surface with selected cabbage leafs to cover bottom of tray. This not only protects whatever you are serving but also provides color and texture. 

Step 2

On the other side of the tray take one 6-inch piece of wet floral foam and begin arranging floral piece. Here we started with herbs (sage) but any will do. Use what you have. It will smell amazing and give that texture you are looking for.

Step 3

Next, start placing floral clippings and persimmons. Then foraged greenery from the yard making sure to cover exposed foam. Then dahlias in assorted colors and sizes. Placing the clippings asymmetrically creating interesting shape and texture followed by assorted berry branches and vines. 

Step 4

The piece was finished with seasonal berries, figs, honeycomb, almonds and assorted cheeses. This piece could be great in the center of the table or placed on a kitchen island area. 

A Party Spread

Integrate a delicious selection of fruit or cheese along with your arrangement for a beautiful holiday spread.

Fall Green Pitcher Arrangement

Looking for a way to embellish your Thanksgiving table or just remind yourself of brighter spring days with an indoor arrangement? Consider one of these beautiful arrangements simplified with easy how-to assembly tips.

Supplies

For this project you will need: One preferred pitcher of your choice. Use something that compliments your unique floral arrangement / one 4-inch piece wet foam cut to fit perfectly inside the mouth of the pitcher, this allows you to give the arrangement more movement and height / floral clippings, yard foliage and grocery store flowers of your choice / hydrangea from the backyard, vines, fall leaves (golden tones) / berry branches of choice (we used bittersweet but you can use any berry branch from your yard with color) / wildflowers still available until first freeze / dahlias / orchid (available at your local grocery store or local nursery) / wet floral foam available online or at your local craft store / one good pair of floral sheers or sharp scissors.

Step 1

First make sure your floral foam is well soaked so your arrangement stays fresh for as long as possible. Cut your piece of foam a little larger than the opening of the lid of the pitcher opening. Then place the piece of floral foam into the lid of the opening of the pitcher, making sure the floral foam is snug and secure so your arrangement will stay in place. 

Step 2

Take one of your floral clippings or foliage clippings and begin arranging. We wanted this arrangement to be loose and look as though it was picked from the garden. Be adventurous and combine both floral, foraged greenery and edibles in centerpieces such as herbs, fruits or berry branches and herbs like oregano to create a more handpicked arrangement. You can always use what you have on hand and be creative with color. 

Step 3

Begin with peppers first then add the amber colored orchid arranging asymmetrically, then wildflowers and dahlias, filling the piece but distributing all clippings so the arrangement is filled with a little of each clipping. Be especially attuned to evenly distributing warm color. Also make sure there are no holes in your arrangement. We finished the piece off with a couple sprigs of berry branches for extra color and texture (we chose bittersweet).

Final Arrangement

Bring bright color to even the most overcast fall and winter day with this cheerful arrangement.

Bark Wall with Glass Bulb Vases

The slides that follow show you step by step how to create this rustic arrangement. 

Supplies

Four glass bulbs or more depending on how many you would like (you also could buy more of the bark wood tiles and glass bulbs to cover more wall space) /  one cork bark bulletin board / assorted blooms (we chose dahlias, wildflowers, ranunculus (available at your local market or nursery). Feel free to use whatever florals are available and ones that are in the palette you are looking for / pumpkin branches (small clippings from the branch) / clipped yard foliage / a few small wide head nails to make sure the vase is secure once hung / one small hammer.

Step 1

Place nails where you would prefer the placement of glass vase. Also hammer one larger nail into wall centered where you would like the piece to go. The bulletin should have an eyelet hook on the top center making it easy to hang or you could also use adhesive hooks. We chose to use a nail and hammer. 

Step 2

Begin placing blooms and foliage into each vase. Cut each clipping at an angle so each has a fresh cut and can easily drink water. Each small arrangement we created was different and had a few stems in each vase. 

Step 3

Hang the vertical finished piece up. It could go anywhere in your home or outside area used again and again for all seasons. 

Pumpkin Planter for Either a Porch or Tabletop

The following slides explain how to build this versatile pumpkin planter. 

Supplies

Assorted pumpkins in shades of green and white in various sizes (6-8 fits perfectly) available at your local market or nursery / large potted cabbage / potted seasonal greenery and 2 smaller potted cabbage with saucers (available at your local nursery) / one copper boot tray or other shallow, long vessel / small clay pots: 2 medium and 2 extra small for assorted cabbages (available at your local nursery) / one can of copper spray paint for terra-cotta clay pots to match boot tray (available at your local hardware store or craft store).

Step 1

Take terra-cotta pots and spray with copper spray paint. Allow 30 minutes to thoroughly dry and then plant inside each pot. 

Step 2

Start placing cabbage and pumpkins in tray. We placed the largest cabbage first then the largest white pumpkin to get an idea about placement and space. Follow with the smaller sizes so everything fits perfectly. 

Step 3

Make sure all pots and different size cabbages are well watered. Water every few days to ensure plants are healthy and well fed. This piece could be great on a table top or front porch.  

Your Final Arrangement

Rich purples and greens contrast beautifully with metallics in this festive fall arrangement.
