What You’ll Need

  • Pumpkin – the size of the pumpkin you choose will determine how big your centerpiece is. If you want a big “wow” centerpiece for the middle of the table, choose a medium-sized pumpkin. If you want a small centerpiece for each place setting, use a small pumpkin.
  • Colorful flowers – Any flowers will do. These flowers can be store bought or hand picked. These centerpieces feature zinnias, but you could feature anything you want including sunflowers, roses, carnations, and more.
  • Cannabis – It is up to you whether you would like to use fan leaves or flower buds. If you use a flower bud, let the recipient know that they can dry it and use it after they have enjoyed the arrangement.
  • Floral foam – Easily found at your local craft store or online, this floral foam is needed to help keep the flowers in place when putting them inside the pumpkin.
  • Wooden skewer – this will be used to skewer the top of the pumpkin and place it in the arrangement.

The sky is the limit here. If you’re strapped for time, purchase a premed bouquet from the store and arrange it as desired. If you have a local farmers market, get flower arrangements there if possible. Opt for a mix of shorter and taller flowers, to create more visual appeal in the arrangement.
