Six Ideas for Decorating with Pumpkins

Six Ideas for Decorating with Pumpkins
For this showstopping focal point, present a profusion of flowers in a pumpkin. Cut a circle from the top, scoop out the interior, and insert a plastic vessel lined with saturated floral foam. Using care to cover the raw edge of the opening, arrange a bouquet for a lively ode to fall.

  1. I LOVE the Victoria magazine just as I have in the past 🙂 Please don’t take it off the market as you once did! Years ago when my children were younger, I received Victoria in the mail, but then it was discontinued & I was sad to see it go 🙁 This special publication is a CLASSIC & should always & forever be in print.

  2. Does anyone know where the mini ‘soup tureen’ white covered dishes can be purchased ( Page 61 Volume 11,Issue 6)…..Thankssssssssssssssss

    • Dear Marilyn, thank you for your interest in Victoria. Sadly, we do not have the resource or product information on this item; however, I believe it is an antique. You can ask your local antiques store if they have or can help you find something similar. Best.
