I am moving so slow on the fall decorating around here. I still think I am missing some silk flowers.. the random things that can't be found after a PCS move! I may find them stuffed in a bin full of kids clothes like i found a 4th of July wreath one year.. in October. So random.
So as I am fretting over my poor organizational skills.. and indecisiveness in finding "the best" spot to store everything (does it really matter?... I haven't found any of those flowers so I decided to use what little (and not so attractive) ones i found to give the house a hint of fall.
I have "the perfect" spot (above) for my Southern Living beverage bucket and stand (I knew I would someday have such a spot a few years ago when i hosted a party and ordered this as part of my hostess benefits! lol) Its right in the hall when you walk in so it's a great place to share some seasonal decor. I typically put flowers of the season in here anyway.. but it being so a wide and deep bucket I need a lot to make it full. I have put flowers (fake) in vases and put the vases inside the bucket to help keep them bunched and full. But this time I wanted the pumpkins in there as well.. and to be seen they needed propped up...
Turn the vases upside down :)
Yay! This made it easy to arrange the big, medium, and small pumpkins. I thought I could fill in with flowers around them, but the flowers kept falling down into the bucket.
Earth shattering idea #2... Plastic baggies! I couldn't use floral foam even if I had it because the stems of these flowers have been cut short.. some other year I'm sure it was a good idea. So basically I needed something to fill the bucket and hold up the flowers. We all have a million Walmart bags right? Add another use to them :)
