This November we christened our new flower studio with our first workshop: Succulent Pumpkin Planter Centerpiece. I can tell you now that there are going to be some beautiful Thanksgiving tables out there this year!
One of the many things I love about workshops is that with some basic instructions and an endless supply of material, the creative possibilities are endless.
We worked with a variety of succulents in different shapes and sizes. It took any where from 7 to 10 of these babies to fill out the centerpieces. The trick is to eyeball where you want to put them, and place the tallest two or three off center, as the focal point.
This was our first year for growing pumpkins: Johradale and Long Island cheesehead. They worked perfectly for the needs of this class. Next year we’re planning on adding fairytale/Cinderella pumpkins to the mix! To extend the life of your pumpkin decor, don’t cut off the stem (it signals the pumpkin to break down.) Simply cut it short and give your pumpkin a bleach water bath for 30 minutes.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ll let them speak for themselves😍 Big shout out to the beautiful souls that were our first class guinea pigs and theor wonderful creations!
