Fall Decor.


Yesterday I was playing around with my gilded pumpkins and some wonderful roses I purchased while doing my grocery shopping... and that's what I ended up with!
I thought to share this centerpiece with you, as I believe it's a perfect elegant tabletop decor for Fall celebrations and parties... or simply to treat yourself to something special during this blessed Season!


I simply put a hurricane vase onto a container where I arranged roses (into florist foam soaked in water) and gourds. I then added a twisted gilded/silver metal thread with Murano glass beads and crystals, just to add some sparkle to my arrangement!
That's it! So very simple and very impressive indeed!




You can also use silk flowers instead of fresh roses, to allow your centerpiece last till Thanksgiving!

  9. Hi Monica

    I have a couple of gourds and a Turk's Turban drying out on my windowsill but it occurred to me I should ask you if I should be drying them out somewhere dark rather than on the windowsill. I would be glad to hear from you on that point if you ever get a spare moment

    I am thinking of either dipping them in wax, painting with acrylic wax or gilding them after seeing your delightful beauties!!
