~Fresh Flower Pumpkins and Ribbon Wreaths~

Hey Guys! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! Thank you again for your continued prayers for Kevin. He's feeling pretty good and is not having much pain, thank goodness! It might be a few weeks before we hear about the "mass" but I will let you know as soon as we do. We are still confident everything will be ok.

Getting on with everyday life...I helped a sweet lady decorate for a fall party yesterday. I made fresh flower arrangements in pumpkins for the centerpieces. I used all kinds of fall flowers including sunflowers, gerbera daisies, mums, lillies and even picked some of the greenery from outside. After I finished I noticed the bottom looked waaaaay to plain so I added different ribbons around the base of the flowers. You guys know how much I love ribbon!! I also used wide fall colored netting along the center of the table and added fresh mini pumpkins, gourds and dried corn.


I made this one for her island, it's a little taller. I love her pumpkin placemats and candles. Cute! If you inlarge the picture you can see a fun frame in the background ;)
I made these wreaths for her front doors. She wanted something different and she loves that wide netting.
These are simple to make...I just tied the netting and ribbons all around the grapevine wreaths and hung the signs with wire in the middle. Easy! She loved how they turned out.

Maybe this gave you some ideas...thanks for stopping by!!

Hey Kristen! We have got to start doing better about keeping in touch with each other's blogs! We used to do so well. There are just so many blogs to visit, right??? Well, I do need to catch up to see what's going on with your husband. I hope everything is okay.
Next let me just say BEAUTIFUL! You have such a knack for floral arranging and everything else you do. Those pumpkins are gorgeous. Do you use a vase at the bottom to put the flowers in? I would also love to see how you do those wreaths. They are so fun and I know your friend was thrilled!
Come by and see me sometime!
