I have two friends, Gail Garner and Shelia Smith, who are so creative. They are our go-to pair when the event calls for something really special. Amy Grant was gracious enough to come to Birmingham for a concert benefitting the Auxiliary of Big Oak Ranch. I have written about the ranch many times here on Ribbon, so you know my love for this ministry. This was a special night and we were fortunate to have a reception time with Amy before the concert. The evening called for something special and Gail and Shelia worked their magic with these beautiful arrangements.
Gail and Shelia put their creative ideas together for the floral arrangements for the reception and I wanted to share them with you. I love the way they used cabbages, pumpkins and gourds at the bottom of the wire stand. And of course, autumn is the season for mums. I love the way they blended them with roses. The black table cloths created the perfect backdrop to showcase these wonderful arrangements.
The small white pumpkins were uniquely used to hold small table bouquets. You simple cut an opening and scoop out the pumpkins. Place a small jar or can in the pumpkin and fill with your favorite flowers.
You probably have some great foliage and berries in your yard to use if you make your own version of these arrangements. Pumpkins come is so many wonderful colors, use them to celebrate autumn with beautiful flowers!
How do you decorate your table during Fall?
