Tricks of the Trade

I love everything about Fall! The changing of the leaves, cool evenings dining on a patio, college football, burning the first fire of the season and family gatherings during the holidays.


I am always looking for ways to freshen up our home with pumpkins and leaves of the season.


Recently, while reading the latest Southern Living magazine, I saw a few fall decorating ideas. A couple days later I saw the same “idea” on Pinterest. So, I decided to try it.


I took the information and tweaked it a little…


Per Southern Living and Pinterest, I started with Bittersweet and Succulents from the florist, a large pumpkin, five mini pumpkins, florist foam, a variety of moss and florist picks.


I ended up not using the Florist Picks or the foam.

I started by hot glueing the moss loosely to the top of the pumpkin.



I began placing the pumpkins and succulents on the moss. Once I was happy with their placement, I glued the mini pumpkins to the moss. I did not glue the succulents because they are living and I plan on using them in another arrangement after Thanksgiving.



Place pieces of the Bittersweet under and around the moss. I used longer pieces so that it hung out and draped over the arrangement.



Large Acorns and small pinecones would look great in this arrangement. Unfortunately, I did not have any on hand.

I finished the arrangement by placing the pumpkin on an old cuitting board, wrapping an antler around the base, clipping a Japanese Maple branch from my yard and adding a vine of faux berries.



I enjoy  trying new ideas and I am pretty pleased with the way this turned out. I plan on creating another one to use at our cabin on Thanksgiving. I will share Thanksgiving tablescape ideas next week.


I hope you all have a great weekend and happy decorating!
