Fall Pumpkin Centerpiece

Fall 2016 is in full swing and I will say I am pumped for it! I am definitely a summer girl but once the temperatures start to cool the attic boxes come down, if you know what I mean 😉 There are pumpkins spread all around the house and yummy smelling candles burning. This season always gives me the push I need to get my creative juices flowing and that didn’t change when I decided to create a little centerpiece for our kitchen table. I always keep fresh flowers on this table but I wanted to do a little something different for the new season. 

If you’ve been following for awhile you might remember when I threw my best friend her Fall themed baby sprinkle. You can click that link to check it out or view the photo below.  I had purchased some pumpkins at the orchard and carved them out and used them as planters on the tables.Fall Pumpkin CenterpieceUsing this as some inspiration I hit up Michaels and purchased a faux pumpkin along with some floral pieces and floral foam.

Next, I measured my foam to make sure it fit inside. I had to trim the sides and shorten it a bit.

Now I know you could probably find these arrangements already done in your local craft store but trust me when I say, nothing beats being able to look over and say, I made that!
