Fresh flowers are mandatory when throwing a party, so when we began planning our housewarming party I knew that we would have to do something special. I wanted to make sure that our flower arrangements were appropriate for the season. But most importantly, I wanted the arrangements to be easy to make! This idea would be perfect for a Thanksgiving centerpiece. Take a look.
We bought pumpkins at a farmers market for just a few bucks. Joe carved the top of the pumpkins and scooped out all of the seeds and other gunk. (I didn't want pumpkin guts under my nails for our big party).Then I took a bunch of small branches from our maple trees and began to assemble a bouquet of carnations, pom poms and astromerias that I purchased from the store.
