{fall inspired florals}

On a recent trip to Whole Foods, I could not help myself, but to pick up all these amazing dark fall florals.  Our local Whole Foods usually gets some pretty boring selections in the flower department so when I spotted these lotus pods, hypernicum berry and thistle (all on sale!) I just knew I had to put something together!  I threw in a bunch of deep pink spray roses to give it a little femininity and pop of color.

I know it's been all over pinterest, but the first person I saw make an arrangement in a hollowed out pumpkin was my mother when I was in grade school and I remember thinking at the time that it was just about the coolest thing I had ever seen.  I picked up three of these "pie" pumpkins also from Whole foods, hollowed them out and then popped a small glass vase in each one.  I am sure you could skip the vase part, but I was concerned the pumpkins would get super soggy within a day- these ones are still going strong about 4 days later.

Be sure to check back tomorrow to see the full tablescape that went along with these arrangements!


  1. Gorgeous! I love creations out of grocery stores goodies!

  2. I have to ask - have you done floral work professionally? These are amazing!

    1. Hi Amy,

      I have not professionally done florals, but thanks for asking- that is a huge compliment!! :)


  3. Good to know! I did these for a cocktail party a few weeks ago, but was scared to use a pie pumpkin because the shells are softer. Your arrangement looks really pretty!

  4. LOVE this arrangement! Perfect for a fall tablescape! xoxo, Lindsay
