Hydrangea and White Pumpkin Fall Centerpiece

Hydrangea and White Pumpkin Fall Centerpiece

I have to start off by saying thank you to everyone for all the sweet comments from my Coastal Fall Home Tour last week. My heart is bursting at its seams with your kind words. Many have asked for the demonstration how to make the White Pumpkin Fall Centerpiece and today I’ll walk you through the super simple steps. This fall centerpiece can be thrown together in just a few minutes and is a beautiful way to ease out of summer decor and into autumn.

Ease into Autumn with a beautiful and easy to make White Pumpkin Fall Centerpiece

Only a few items are needed to make this White Pumpkin Fall Centerpiece (Amazon affiliate links included for your shopping convenience):


Step 1: Soak the oasis foam in water for a few minutes until the foam is completely wet, trim if needed and place in pedestal bowl. Cut Dusty Miller stems and insert into a few into each of the 4 the sides of the foam. Allow for the Dusty Miller to hang over the edges of the bowl.

Step 2: Insert dried or fresh hydrangea blooms into the oasis foam, creating a ring of blooms along the edge of the bowl.


Step 3: Place a plastic sandwich bag over the middle of the wet oasis. This is necessary to protect the bottom of the pumpkin (faux or real) from molding. It also helps retain the moisture level of the oasis foam.


Step 4: Set the white pumpkin in the middle. Trim wheat stems to approximately 4-5 inches long and insert 5 into the oasis.

Be sure to check the moisture level of the oasis everyother day and add more water to the foam if needed. One thing which is nice if you are using fresh hydrangea blooms is that in about a week, the blooms will dry out and you have gorgeous dried blooms to use in other arrangements and crafts.

  1. Lots of pretties and great ideas, love them all. You have gorgeous home, at least your living room, from photos. Love your huge windows. Do you use live dusty miller stalks or faux? Anymore fax greenery is made to look very real. Your arrangement is just so pretty.
    Have great week

    • Hi JaneEllen! The dusty miller is real. I usually try to use flowers and greenery from my yard/garden. I did see dusty miller bunches in our grocery store for around $4. This entire arrangement though could be made with combination of silk and dried floral items too. Thanks for the kind comment! ~ KIM

  2. Love the arrangement and I am going to make it. Although, I am going to use silk flowers so I can keep it extra long. Your seagrass coffee table is lovely. Is it a recent purchase or have you had it a while? If recent, would you mind sharing where you purchased it from? Thanks.

    • Thank you Sandy! I agree with you, this arrangement is perfect for replicating with silk flowers! The seagrass coffee table was a purchase from Joss & Main several years ago. It is a storage table and holds all my old magazines and throw blankets. 😉
