An Easy Floral Arrangement- DIY

We hosted the first grade parent party for my daughter's school this past Thursday night.  I had such fun creating a floral arrangements for this event.  


Cut Flowers Set In a Pumpkin 


Supplies:


1 medium size white pumpkin
1 plastic floral container
1 packet flower food 
scissors
2 bunches flowers, of your choice


I selected white roses and eucalyptus.



I created a little work station right out on my patio.



Cut the top off of the pumpkin.



Scoop out the seeds and discard.



I bought this plastic floral liner from the floral department at Kroger (our local grocery store).  Place the liner inside the pumpkin, to create a "vase".



The flower food is available at the floral department too.  This really keeps your arrangement fresh for several days.



Start cutting and arranging the flowers in the "vase".  Cut the stems at the same length and, work in a circle, until the flowers are evenly arranged. 



Keep working...



So pretty!  You can also use an orange pumpkin.  Red roses would be so nice inside the orange.  Use your imagination and create away! 




Have a wonderful Sunday evening!  Use fresh flower arrangements any chance that you can...they smell so good and, your guests will enjoy their beauty.  


Hugs & Living With Flair,
Beth

How neat! Would not have thought to do something like that with a pumpkin! Following from the Sunday blog hop (yes, I'm late), I had 3 reviews to do. Following you thru GFC and would love a follow back. Thanks so much for your time and have a great week!

This week is NOT the newbie party,in lieu of it is a magazine copy cat challenge. This is a cute idea and I have seen it in a mag. If you can find a picture of a magazine one, copy that into your post as well and then relink and say you are joining the MAGAZINE copy cat challenge. Sorry for the confusion. I host this party once a month and have been announcing it. Thanks.
