Ceramic Pumpkin Centerpiece

I have had a pair of these ceramic pumpkins for some time. They are for potted plants and so have holes in them, but I thought that I would line one with a plastic container and do an arrangement in it. I have seen similar looking containers at Thanksgiving used as serving dishes for soups and such; however, I thought it would make a lovely Thanksgiving piece, albeit the colors are atypical for this time of year. But, then again, I am the first to admit that I don't do things traditionally!

Flowers: garden rose, ranunculus, clematis, sage, eucalyptus, tulip Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

This is a shallow container, so I have used the eucalyptus to secure the rest of the flowers in the vase. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Place the sage in between the tulips (this arrangement smelled so good). Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Add the taller ranunculus stems. I simply love the graceful lines on taller ranunculus within arrangements. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

I added the clematis at the end, and used it as a focal point within the arrangement. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com
