Is this the coolest Fall decoration or what?!

Cool Fall decoration - This was the centerpiece at each table at the family party. I thought it was just too cool!

I'm sure some of you have seen or made this decoration before, but to me it's a wonderful "newfangled" idea. This was the centerpiece for each table at the restaurant where my family held the reunion/birthday party for my aunt. Some had the yellow flowers, and others had a variety of flowers in them. They were all garnished with a wreath of silk fall colored leaves, and surrounded by the baby pumpkins that you see in the picture. I just wanted to share it with all of you, in case any of you were like me and "imaginatively challenged" like me in the decorating department. LOL! Have a great day everyone! Hugs to all!

I have never seen this before. Silk flowers planted in the shell of a small pumpkin. That's pretty thoiughtful and very nice as well. I love it. I wonder if it would work with a live plant? Hmmm? Thanks. I rated the photo and left a comment as well. I thought at first it was real flowers till I read the discussion. Hee hee! I look at the photos then read. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

You actually thought right hon. The flowers in my picture are real. There's potting soil inside the pumpkin shell, and the flowers have roots established too. As a matter of fact, they are still alive and well.

I love the fall colors too....until the leaves fall onto my lawn that is. Not so fond of them when I have to rake them up. LOL!

They look wonderful hun, what a great idea. The other year I was lucky enough to find a load of holly and pine branches locally so I made my Yule decorations. The whole house smelled wonderfully of fresh pine over the holiday period.

Hi Katlady2, This is so beautiful, and a very simple thing to do, especially for those of us who are 'craftily challenged.' Thanks for letting us in on it.:)

You're welcome! By the way, I don't think 'craftily' is a real word, do you?:)

That sounds absolutely gorgeous! If you get it set up, will you please take some pictures so that I can see them? Pretty please? With sugar on top? LOL

I had the kids take pics, but nobody kept them long enough for me to get them onto my computer! I had an ivory cloth, then the gold one... a basket of mums in the center, 2 white pumpkins with stripes(so cute!)with more mums stuck in them, then a rusty-colored spicy-smellin' candle at each end. We used all white earthenware... it was sorta breath-taking, if I do say so!LOL! I have my own camera now... lets see what I can come up with for Christmas!
