Project

Autumnal Outdoor Bouquet

Introduction

Showcase a sunset-hued medley of fall vegetables and foliage in decorative urns. In the process, containers languishing without summer blooms will get a new job. (If you don't have an urn, look for one at a garden-supply store.)

Materials

  • Decorative urns
  • Fall vegetables
  • Fall foliage

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Leave the old soil in the vessels -- or place large rocks inside -- and cover the top with a variety of foliage from your backyard, such as maple leaves. Then pile on finds from farmers' markets and pumpkin stands, such as viburnum berries, gourds, and mini pumpkins. The arrangement should last two to three weeks.

  2. Step 2

    Then pile on finds from farmers' markets and pumpkin stands, such as viburnum berries, gourds, and mini pumpkins. The arrangement should last two to three weeks.

    i used a glass bowl and a couple more gourds and made it into a center piece. i had my grandmother mail me some leaves too because i it had rained so all the leaves were soggy.

    What should we do in Southern California where there aren't these wonderful colors and leaves and such in our backyard? I think it would be a bit tacky with fake foliage.

    I love this idea!!! I have two black urns of the same style as in the photo, and frequently use mine for seasonal decorations when they aren't filled with annuals.
