Wiffle ball Flowers
Easy way to make hanging flower balls. Wiffle balls from dollar store, dollar store fake flowers, pull the stems off the flower, hot glue around the circle in the wiffle ball, press flower into the hole making sure the bottom of the flower, keep going until the ball is full of flowers, then hang with a ribbon. Genius!
Here's what you'll need:
Ribbon (if hanging)
Start by taking the flowers apart, leaving some length of the stem like this. If they are small flowers, they might have two or three blossoms all connected with one stem. It's fine...
Put some hot glue around the holes and tuck the stem inside, pressing the flower onto the glue.
If you want to attach a ribbon, do it when you have just a couple of holes left to fill. The first ball I made, I put the string in first and it just got in my way the whole time. But maybe you're more coordinated than I am! Put the ribbon through two holes and tie at the top.
Make sure your ribbon is long enough, mine were a little too short at first.
Use big flowers--it made the whole ball look bigger and fluffier.
If the flowers are small, you can put a couple of stems in each hole.
You'll need 2-3 bunches per ball, depending on how big the flowers are and how tight you glue them on.
I wondered if these would be great smelling if I put some essential oil on a cotton ball and put it in the middle before I glued flowers on....but I haven't tried it yet. Maybe they could help my car smell great!
And there you have it. They sure add a splash of color!!

Pumpkins are a must have for the wedding I cant wait to decorate these pumpkins.

I was thinking a pumpkin with here comes the bride insead of a pillow for the kids to bring down the aisle.
Fall Wedding Flowers
Generally you can find Mums, roses, daisies, yarrow, fall leaves, tallow berries and both natural and dried wheat for inexpensive prices during the fall. A spray of wheat or a mum accented with a pheasant feather makes an elegant boutonnière. Consider hollowing out pumpkins for your centerpiece containers if you dont have the time, many craft and home stores now sell realistic fake pumpkins. But if you go with the real thing, consider white or blue natural pumpkins for an elegant and unique touch.
Attire for Your Fall Wedding
I recommend that an autumn bride look for cream and off-white dresses with gold beading and accents. Bridesmaids will look wonderful in jeweltone dresses; match the groomsmens vests to their dresses. Look at rich fabrics such as brocades and velvets for a luxurious touch.
Remember that weather in the fall can be tricky in many areas of the United States, it will be hard to know long in advance whether your wedding day will be warm or chilly. I suggest that the bride and bridesmaids wear strapless dress with capelets, stoles or wraps. On a warm day, the overlayer can be easily removed, but you wont be left shivering on a chilly day.
Planning the Menu
The most traditional fall dinner is a roasted turkey with pumpkin pie for dessert, but there are so many other options for a fall wedding menu. From roasted quail to standing rib roast, choose a hearty meat that will pair well with heavier side dishes such as squash and mashed potatoes. A mushroom ragout evokes the season and provides a nice entrée for your vegetarian guests. You might start the meal with a hearty soup served in a hollowed out pumpkin, accompanied by whole grain rolls. Serve warm apple cider in glass mugs with a cinnamon stick stirrer, and offer an alternative to wedding cake with a baked apple dessert.
A Fall Wedding Cake
Really you can serve any wedding cake at a fall wedding, but you can add to your autumn theme by serving a spiced cake or a spiced chocolate cake. Consider having an all chocolate cake, decorated with marzipan fruit. Or omit the cake altogether to serve pumpkin bread and apple, pecan and pumpkin pie.
Give a favor in keeping with the season such as a beautiful apple tied with a gold ribbon, or a bottle of maple syrup. If you have a sweet tooth, give guests caramel apples wrapped in cellophane, or give a DIY kit of a caramel apple recipe with all the ingredients theyll need - a perfect apple, some caramels, and a Popsicle stick. Help your guests decorate for the season by giving them mini pumpkins, or an ear of ornamental corn tied with some wheat and a pretty fall ribbon. Marzipan fruit is also a wonderful fall wedding favor. If youre crafty, I love the idea of giving each guest a jar of homemade preserves as they leave.
I think I want to wear a black and white dress to the rehersal dinner or maybe to my wedding shower.
