i just made a mock up of the centerpiece I want to use for my fall themed wedding on Oct 30th. please let me know what you honestly think
The centerpiece is made up mostly of orange mums with 6 yellow roses . I was originally thinking of putting it inside a white pumpkin but my local supermarket only had orange ones (i think i kind of like the orange pumpkin). I was also thinking of maybe putting an apple, one of those funky looking gourds, and one pumpkin tea light in a cluster next to the arrangement but i forgot to buy the apple and my supermarket only had white little pumpkins. Should I keep it as is ? or try it with the apple and gourd?
So do u think it? Do you think the apple and other gourd will look weird? Are the mums too orange in comparison to the orange pumpkin? Should I keep it in an orange pumpkin or try and look for the white?
let me know what you think

Ahh…double posted. I had just asked if you had pictures on the other thread. Anyway…I like it. I defintely think you should do the little tea light pumpkins.

I love it! Though I’m a bit biased because my centerpieces will very similar — peach and leonidas roses, orange freesia, butterscotch button mums, and rust hypericum berries in a white pumpkin… I also love the pumpkin tea lights. The combo will be stunning!

@pinkrokker wanna hear something funny. your icon came up on google images and it was one of the inspiration pictures for my mock up =D . Sounds like your flower combo will look fantastic. great choice

Looks good- I think it will be equally nice with white or otange pumpkins.
I would make the following teeny changes:
– try it with cutting the flowers a little shorter so the flowers appear more connected to the pumpkin.
-cut the roses so they are the same height as the mums
-use an odd number of roses-5 or 7
I think the addition of the apple, gourd and pumpkin tealight will be perfect.

I love the look from above, but think it would be even better if you cut the flowers shorter so that they look more full coming out of the pumpkin

I think it’s pretty. I think it would look good with a white pumpkin too, but it doesn’t have to be, and will probably be easier to find orange. I wouldn’t add anything else to it, it looks good the way it is.

Really cute and a great idea.
I have to be honest. I normally not a fan of mum’s (at all) but adding the roses really makes them more appealing and add dimension. Plus the pumpkin is such an adorable touch.

I like it. Off the bat I was going to say the same thing as a couple other posters. It kind of looks like there’s too much green showing. Maybe strip the stems a bit, and shorten them so they sit closer to the pumpkin.

These are really cute! Love the pumpkin candleholder.

Very cute! I agree, cut them smaller and I think white pumpkins would be gorgeous! Lowes currently has them right now if you want to try a look with them.

@misssgreen really they have white pumpkins. i’ll have to check them out. although I don’t know how early I can buy the pumpkins before the go bad.
If any one happens to know how long an uncut pumpkin will last that would be great.
Thanks everyone for your advice and sugesstions.
appreciate them =)

I love the idea! I think there seems like a lot of orange in the 1st photo, but if you put the white pumpkins with it, it will look gorgeous, and what a creative idea! 🙂
