Sophisticated Centerpiece.

Do you remember this centerpiece I made last Fall? I'm still in love with it, so I wanted to show it again for those of you who missed that post!
I simply arranged in a grapevine basket several spray painted dried pumpkins, aged with antiquing glaze, with fresh roses. As usual, soaked florist's foam provided the perfect support for fresh flowers to last.


A hurricane vase with candle completed the centerpiece. 

And glass beads and crystals added some sparkle!


I'm linking to Cindy's Show and Tell Friday, pop by her blog for loads of eye candies!
Happy Friday!

  5. That is so pretty, and the color of those roses take my breath away they are so lovely. I like what you did with the antiqued gourds. I'm a gold girl so I really like natural elements sprayed that color. Very pretty, Monica!
