Bringing garden accents indoor is one of my signature decorating themes. In fall I love using natural elements and the abundant squashes and pumpkins readily available for decorating inspiration. I am all about not having to store a lot of “stuff”. Taking a few pumpkins from the market(you can even cook them later!) and repurposing a garden urn into an indoor arrangement is a quick, elegant way to decorate for fall. This fall arrangement on my kitchen island was created in no time at all with a black metal garden urn, a sugar pumpkin, some ribbon and a fall wreath. Choose a wreath of the same diameter as the top of your urn and which will have branches and tendrils that can cascade softly beyond the urn, similar to the wreath I chose with small leaves, rose hips and berries. Fill the urn with newspaper or any other filler so the pumpkin can sit above the urn. Place the wreath in top of the urn, add the pumpkin then tie a seasonal ribbon at the base of the urn. For added layering and seasonal accents, you can place a branch of bittersweet around the urn’s pedestal and lean a smaller boo pumpkin against the urn. A gorgeous, no maintenance fall arrangement ready in five minutes!
Here are the step by step instructions:
Happy fall decorating!
