spooky centerpiece

While today's post has nothing to do with our typical subject of weddings, it does have to do with flowers.  And... with Halloween!  We love the spooky holiday, and wanted to share a simple centerpiece concept with you if you'd like to try your hand at it for tomorrow.  Enjoy and have a fun & safe holiday!

The details:

Flowers used:  roses, spray roses, bronze football mums, seeded eucalyptus, agonis, pepper berry, stock, button mums, cushion mums, snapdragons, and birch branches.

Other elements:  tin can (tutorial below), pull-apart spider webbing, glitter spiders ($1 at Walmart), and fake cockroaches (pack of 12 just $2 at Walmart)

Tin-can tutorial (to make your tin-can container look spooky-licious):
  • First, simply use a spray bottle to spritz the can with water.
  • Next, take some black spray paint and spray over the water. 
  • Finally, take a paper towel and lightly dab the can.  
  • Let dry.
