Take your table to a whole new level this fall with step by step directions for creating a luxurious fall centerpiece with Hot Skwash velvet pumpkins from LoveFeast.
I was compensated for this post by LoveFeast. The original project, photos and opinions are 100% my own. See my full disclosure HERE.
Today, a few of my blogging friends are getting together to celebrate the arrival of fall with glorious Hot Skwash velvet pumpkins from LoveFeast. We’ve all put together ideas for how to use these beauties in your home this season. Be sure to visit my friends at the end of this post to see their beautiful ideas too!
These Hot Skwash pumpkins are exquisite and are the most beautiful velvet pumpkins that I have ever seen! As soon as I unpacked my shipment, I immediately had a vision of what I would do with them. They are deserving of a special place and would become an elegant fall centerpiece for my dining room table.
I love the mix of neutral, blue and traditional fall russet mixed together, so to really set the colors off, I grouped them in a large, white footed bowl that I placed on top of a washed natural linen tablecloth. The colors just POP against the neutral background and are gorgeous!
Each silk velvet pumpkin has a realistic, lumpy appearance to it and is tightly gathered at the top. They’re firmly packed with crushed hazelnut shells so that they will always hold their shape.
One of my favorite things about them are the real pumpkin stems that each pumpkin is topped with. Every stem is a piece of art on its own and the curviness of them can become a great prop for displaying the pumpkins in a unique way.
The largest pumpkin, which is sporting a collar of natural feathers, is so beautiful that it deserves to be in the spotlight by itself. Swoon!
The pumpkins are available in a large assortment of colors and sizes and can be purchased individually or in groups.
My arrangement consists of:
Creating an arrangement like this is so much easier than you think!
Let me show you exactly how I put mine together and then you can adapt what I did to fit your own home and container.
Hot Swash velvet pumpkins, large footed bowl (the opening of mine is 14″ across and the bowl is 9″ tall), assorted smaller bowls, shredded paper crinkles and berries. You can ignore the candle and candlestick in the photo – I wound up not using them.
To make it appear that the container is overflowing with pumpkins, place filler in the bottom. I used a variety of bowls from my cabinets, turned upside down.
Place the pumpkins on top of the bowls. Be sure to turn and tilt them at different angles instead of positioning them with all of the stems pointing straight up.
Fill in the empty spots with shredded paper.
Tuck in fall berries.
