Pumpkins & Gourds in a Pumpkin!

 This is my first dive into fall decorating!

 I found this metal pumpkin at Michael's and immediately had this idea to place a group of flowers and pumpkins in it.  It's designed to hold a candle votive but I had Dan drill up through the bottom of the candle votive holder so I could place my flowers inside of it.

 I bought two of these but there was only room for one in the hole we created.  Then I cut the other one into individual pieces and poked them in.

 I bought this cake/serving tray at Hobby Lobby.  I like the farmhouse look it brings in.

So this is my first dive into fall decorating, it's transitional since I still have the sunflowers displayed!


  1. Oh LIz, the metal looks great. I love using metals with fall but this galvanized look is somewhat new to me and really works with the orange.

  2. That is such an adorable Fall centerpiece, Liz! Adding the decorated metal pumpkin to the cake serving tray makes it extra special and unique! Perfect for the entire fall season! Happy Fall!

  3. Liz, I like your farmhouse vignette. The colors look great. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  4. What a cute idea! That was smart to have hubby drill that. A really great Fall piece. I haven't done the first thing yet---this week---I have promised myself I will. xo Diana

  5. Love your start to decorating for Fall, Liz. Galvanized pieces are so simple, but add a great texture and nice contrast for your pretty pumpkins. I took my summer wreath off the front door and replaced it with a fall one. We also hung the Autumn flag. So far, that's it! The last few cooler days gets me in the mood.

  6. Liz your sweet little vignette looks pretty. Love the galvanized pieces you found. I am starting to let go of summer and embrace Fall moving in. Have a good start to the new week.

  7. Nice. Now, if only it would start feeling like Fall.... 98 degrees over the last few days!

  8. Such a great looks and so creative. The fall pumpkin looks great all decked out with pumpkins and florals. It looks lovely in the farmhouse stand.

  9. Been a long time sweet lady. I love your home all dressed for fall.. I am not doing Tablescapes!! My new love is doing Door Wreaths with the Deco Mesh for all Seasons.. You need to come see me on my face book page..
