We all know that pumpkins are almost essential to any autumn decor. Today I have an awesome autumn pumpkin vignette to share with you.
Whether your pumpkins are real or faux, inside or outside, an autumn pumpkin vignette will add to your fall decorations.
There are unlimited ways to decorate a pumpkin and create a pumpkin vignette.
Have you ever seen a pumpkin basket? I found one at a local antique mall a few years ago. I didn’t have to think twice about buying it.
I couldn’t wait to create a seasonal arrangement using this pumpkin basket. You can let me know if you like it.
Autumn Pumpkin Vignette as a Centerpiece
Pumpkins come in all sizes, colors and shapes, whether real or faux. We already have several areas in our home that sport pumpkin vignettes:
One area that was pumpkin~less was our breakfast table. It was crying out for a pretty pumpkin vignette to finish off our autumn home decor.
This pumpkin vignette would be super simple to make. The pumpkin basket set the tone, the size, and the style.
The foundation of this pumpkin vignette was the woven pumpkin that I found at a local antique mall last year. I thought it was really unique. Then, I used it in my Halloween tablescape.
This year I would use the woven pumpkin as the central focus of a new autumn vignette. I like that it adds color, shape, and texture. At $11, it was a great buy.
Pumpkin Vignette Flowers
Once again, I would fill this woven pumpkin with flowers. The pumpkin is 7 1/2 inches tall and the opening in the pumpkin is 6 1/2 inches wide.
I found a glass vase in my collection to use that is 8 inches tall and 6 inches round. This glass vase would be a good fit inside the woven pumpkin and hold the flowers.
This vignette would have the traditional 3 ingredients. The woven pumpkin is the first.
I made a trip to Trader Joe’s to select my flowers. This is always a fun step in creating any vignette. I selected a variety of fall colors and shapes.
First, I cut the ends off and soaked them in water.
I then soaked a piece of floral foam in the vase. You can see that I reuse the florist foam.
Once the vase was arranged with seasonal flowers, I placed it inside the woven pumpkin. Then I stuffed Spanish moss around the vase to finish off the arrangement.
Don’t you think the flowers are pretty?
Now I was ready to “fill out” the rest of the autumn pumpkin vignette.
Filling out the Autumn Vignette
Next, I set the pumpkin baset on a burlap runner that I made a few years ago. It adds a rustic feel in texture and natural color.
The lid of the pumpkin was the 2nd ingredient of my autumn pumpkin vignette. I tied natural raffia around the top to give it a natural texture.
The 3rd and final element in my pumpkin vignette was the addition of 3 real white pumpkins. They act as one element.
What a difference this pumpkin vignette made to our breakfast room. We now have beautiful fall flowers in a fun pumpkin basket to enjoy.
