Fall is in full swing by now, and the holidays are approaching. I’m talking about Halloween and Thanksgiving. These classic Holidays are steeped in beautiful fall imagery and traditions, and one piece that always sticks with me this time of year is the pumpkin.
This year, my holiday traditions and celebrations look vastly different than they ever have before, and I know that to help keep my family members and friends safe, I am going to be spending more of it with only the company of my boyfriend and our fur babies. No matter how you’re celebrating, if you’re lucky and get to be surrounded by family, or, you need to keep a smaller guest list, I am going to show you how to make this stunning pumpkin tablescape that will fit any size table.

These pumpkins are to die for! I saw them at my local grocery store, and based the rest of my look around them. These more colorful pumpkins, in shades of antique mint, pink, white, and a mixture of oranges. Some also come with warts! are a newer look for me, and. I feel these colors allow you to create a very rustic, nostalgic look with the variety of sizes and textures. My favorite is still the classic jack-o-lantern orange pumpkin, which I used as my vase for the pumpkin bouquet. There is something so satisfying about getting to carve a pumpkin this early, dip your hands into the gooey mess and smell the fragrant pumpkin.
For the pumpkin bouquet, I wanted to incorporate flowers that resembled fall flowers but also had a harvest feel. To make the pumpkin bouquet I used part of the Autumn Sunset Fall Wedding Pack and then added some Dusty Miller and Sherbert Orange Gerbera Daisies. If you would like to see how I made this, check out the video below.
Once I made the pumpkin bouquet, I began setting up the table. I set two place settings. Next I placed my pumpkin bouquet and the largest pink pumpkin next to each other and then from descending size down with the others, mirroring the setup on both sides. I filled in the negative spaces that the larger pumpkins left with smaller assorted color pumpkins and I absolutely loved the abundance of using this many. If you don’t have additional pumpkins you can fill in the space with leaves, decorative rocks or pebbles, sticks, anything that makes you feel the warmth and beauty of fall.
To help add some more texture to this look and fill in more of the negative space, I used some stems of seeded eucalyptus from the Pack. I just tucked these in between pumpkins either on the table, or made them stick up on either side of the pumpkin to add some dimension. Eucalyptus is a great greenery to incorporate because it is a hardy greenery and can last a long time without water.
The finishing touches added to the table included some candles to give the table an intimate and cozy feeling. The total shopping bill for the tablescape was roughly $200.00. You may feel that is a bit expensive. However, the FiftyFlowers flower packs can make multiple arrangements. There are so many stems in the pack, you’ll not only have enough to make a centerpiece, you will have enough to make multiple arrangements and place them around your space or give them away to someone you are thankful for. The best part of this tablescape, it was completed in under an hour.
No matter what your plans for your fall celebrations are, you are going to be able to create a beautifully designed table, and fit it to your own table and guest size and keep it within your budget.
