This DIY fall floral pumpkin is totally customizable depending on the color pumpkin and florals you choose.

I went with a white pumpkin to make the peachy-orange florals pop, but a classic orange pumpkin would look great with some neutral blooms or greenery as well.

To make this last the whole season, I used a foam carve-able pumpkin and a faux fall floral bouquet I found at the craft store. Feel free to substitute a real pumpkin and real bouquet for an upleveled centerpiece.

This project can also be scaled up and down depending on what size pumpkin and the size of bouquet you use.

fall florals & styling tips

Spring is most commonly associated with gorgeous blooms, but the fall really has a ton to offer when it comes to florals.

Heres' the scoop on some classic fall florals to incorporate into your decor.

Billy Buttons (My Fave)

These are super fun & playful and a great way to add a bold pop of yellow.

Billy buttons are perfect if you're going for a whimsical and fun vibe with your decor.

sunflowers

A classic fall favorite and they're super easy to style.

Sunflowers are amazing because they look great solo because of the varied hues and amazing texture they have going on — You can easily style a sunflower-bouquet in any space to add a touch of fall.

Roses

Opt for roses in a orangy-red or peachy hue to make your bouquet feel on-vibe for fall.

Roses in these shades work great to compliment yellow and white blooms and tie your fall bouquet together.

Chrysanthemums

These come in a variety of shades so you can easily find the perfect hue to fit your vibe.

Chrysanthemums are ideal for adding variety to a fall bouquet, not only because of the color options but aso because they add a ton of texture with all their tiny petals, which makes for great visual interest.

Daisies

A great neutral for your bouquet —both in color and just as a more classic looking bloom.

It's important to anchor all the bold colors in your bouquet with a neutral, and daisies are a creamy white bloom that is perfect for just that.

added Texture

Great bouquets also have non-floral textural elements. Some good options for fall are long sticks, a maple leaf branch, pinecones or acorns.

Fall Greenery

Greenery is an essential element for any bouquet, but also can look great solo if you're going for a chic white and green fall decor vibe.

Solid picks for fall greenery include ferns if you want something lively with a lot of texture or eucalyptus if you're going for a more muted green vs a bright / vibrant look.
