Fall Tablescape with Willow Pumpkin and Wild Flowers

The other day I realized I had been so busy all summer that I hadn't done a tablescape since July 4th! I do usually like to toy around with tablescape ideas at least a couple of times a month. Not only for fun, but also so that when we entertain I have something prepared beforehand. I adore doing them; it's kind of a fun, creative outlet for me. Anyway, I decided that I really wanted to get one of those natural willow pumpkins to use in my Fall decorating this year. I saw them a lot last year, both at Pottery Barn and places like Home Goods, so I thought it would be easy to find. I was hoping to get 3 or 4 to use on the mantel, but alas, I have only found one so far. So that is how it ended up in my tablescape! In addition to using the naturalness of the willow pumpkin, I wanted to use some natural flowers or plants. I usually buy flowers at Trader Joe's or another market, but I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could do a creative table using just whatever I could find out in nature. So, when I walked the dog, I brought the clippers! Here is what I came up with....

I found both of these flowers on my morning walk! I loved these little brown fluffy "plumes" and as soon as I found them, I knew I wanted to use them.

We have trails fairly close to our house and these fluffy little rust flowers grow near the edge of many of them. Some of the flowers are more rust, and then some are turning white or mostly white. I have no idea what they are!
