Create this easy-to-do pumpkin and flower centerpiece for a fall get-together.

Pumpkin Basket Floral Arrangement

"Go for a loose and natural arranging style," says Country Livingcontributing editor Richard Kollath, who created this centerpiece with a combination of seeded eucalyptus, statice, miniature kale, sunflowers, and spray roses. Trailing bittersweet vine finishes the arrangement with an unexpected flourish.

Extend a colorful welcome with this pumpkin-basket floral arrangement. It's as easy to make as a jack-o'-lantern, and the pumpkin's rich color is a natural foil for a bunch of seasonal market flowers or the last gleanings from your garden.
