Unique Vessels: Roses in Pumpkins

Autumn is pumpkin season and in my opinion, pumpkins of any size, shape, or color are lovely. I happened to have these wonderful garden roses and I wondered how they would look if I stuck them inside of these mini pumpkins, and so I gave it a try! I must admit, I love how they turned out. I know it is a rather unconventional use of garden roses and pumpkins for the season, but as long as they are both available, why not? Note: These would make an amazing harvest, Halloween, or Thanksgiving table centerpiece. Give it a try!

All you need are garden roses (mostly opened), pumpkins, and something for making a hole in the pumpkin (I used wooden skewers) Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Use the skewers (or other tool) to make a hole inside the pumpkins, and then place the rose stem into the hole. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

The beauty of this (aside from the roses and pumpkin combination) is that the roses last a relatively long time as they use the juice of the pumpkins as their source for moisture! Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com
