Bumpy pumpkins are awesome!!!
Want to snatch attention away from the turkey on the harvest table? Make a flower centerpiece in a bumpy pumpkin. Easy. Whack the top off the pumpkin, scoop out the guts and line the interior with a piece of thick plastic—a heavy-duty garbage bag cut open works well. Make sure to cut it large enough so there it overlaps the edge of the pumpkin about 4 inches. The foam and water pulls the plastic deeper into the cavity than you expect. A recycled yogurt tub makes a great container to support a chunk of foam. Soak the foam in flower food first to maximize flower longevity.
Prep the berries, twigs and assorted foliages in water treated with a Gerbera pill to wash off dust and germs that foul the water fast (sacrificing longevity). Then prep the flowers in Chrysal Professional 2 so they are 100% juiced and ready to go all the way.
This year give thanks for creativity.
