Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Sunday, November 15, 2009

By René @ Cottage and Vine


If you are like most of us married folk, you celebrate Thanksgiving twice, once with each family.  Today we enjoyed lunch with my family, and after 4 days of steady rain, we were due for a day of nice weather.  Nice it was, with temperatures reaching the mid-70's.  My mother, in her usual festive fashion, made an arrangement that I wanted to share with everyone.  She simply hollowed out a pumpkin, filled it with oasis, then placed a few flowers inside. Branches from the garden filled in the rest.


My mother is such an inspiration.

Plant materials used:
  • pumpkin
  • roses
  • alstromeria
  • solidago
  • acuba japonica
  • beautyberry
  • mums


Molly and Rose (my dog sisters)


As always, Mom and I couldn't resist the opportunity to make something together.  Look for the Magnolia wreath tutorial on Tuesday's post.
