First step: Buy a pumpkin in wished size. We bought a small sized pumpkin because it´s easier to have on a table or use as a centrepiece. 

Keep in mind that the bigger the pumpkin, the more flowers you need!

Second step: Cut the top off the pumpkin with a sharp knife. Scoop out all of the stringy pulp and seeds with your hands or a big spoon. Make sure you scrape the inside of the pumpkin with the spoon to get out every scrap of the stringy, soft pulp, leaving only firm, hard flesh. Wipe the inside dry with a kitchen towel or cleaning cloth.

Save the pulp and the seeds! You can use it to make delicious pumpkin lattes and pumpkin seed snacks for your party.

Step four: Once you have the floral foam in the right size, start pinch flower into the upper corners of it. Leave the top without flowers because you are going to put the top of the pumpkin on it.
