FAN­CI­FUL FLOW­ERS

Martha Stewart Living - - Everyday Food -

You don’t need magic beans to cul­ti­vate this ethe­real pump­kin. The del­i­cate ten­drils en­cir­cling it are ac­tu­ally fab­ric ap­pliqués from a crafts store. As for tech­nique, sim­ply pin it to win it: Place the flo­ral pieces where you want them, and se­cure them with straight pins. We chose a smooth pump­kin with a unique pale-pink skin that con­trasts softly with the em­broi­dery col­ors, then gave the blush­ing beauty pride of place on a moss- cov­ered ped­i­ment. But it will look just as lovely at the cen­ter of a ta­ble or spot­lighted on your stoop.
