An autumn wedding does not need to be associated only with orange, red, and brown. I found some lovely white pumpkins that can create the perfect vase for an all-white wedding. They are so easy to make that you’ll want to use them all year round.
Materials: white flowers of your choice, white pumpkins, knife, flower clippers
Step 1: Like normal jack-o-lantern, cut a circle into the pumpkin. Don’t make it too small or too wide. Too small might look a bit funny with flowers in it, and too wide might make them fall out.
Step 2: I left all the seeds inside so it would be easier to stick the flowers in.
Step 3: Put some water into the pumpkin for the flowers.
Step 4: Criss-cross the flowers so they hold their shape like above.
Step 5: Keep on criss-crossing until the pumpkin has a nice shape of flowers.
Done! Aren’t they just the cutest?!
I think it definitely takes a certain kind of person to get this, but hey, if we can spray paint toy animals as placecards, why not action figures as centerpieces??

I’ve become obsessed with finding beautiful floral arrangements, and found Ink & Peat through another website. Her work is very fresh and lush, and everything she designs is incredibly vibrant. These bottom arrangements are very similar to what I’ll be doing for my wedding, except instead of using the birch vases (which can be found at Small Stump), I’m wrapping vases in assorted green fabrics, and each vase will carry a different bunch of flowers in white. She’s opening a store in Portland OR in 2008, but in the meantime, you can contact her for freelance work, or follow her story on her blog, Housemartin.
