A beautiful centerpiece using a real or faux pumpkin topped with live succulents of various sizes, styles, and features. You may create it on a pumpkin, gourd, or faux pumpkin if you wish. Bring as many pumpkins as you like to this workshop.


Your pumpkin, pumpkins, or gourd(s)! We offer recommendations on the types of pumpkins you should get prior to the workshop dates. Your own glue gun with glue sticks and any decor (fall themed dried flowers, ribbons, bows, spooky or fall decor, glitter balls, or whatever you like to dress it up) you wish to add to your creation. Moss and top mechanics materials are included. Note: Succulents are purchased at the workshop. Prices start at $5 and up. A surprise free decor item is given to each attendee and you will have the opportunity to practice “hands-on” propagation too.


We will have a various mix of large to small succulents and our succ stuffers available to purchase at various prices. You pick what you wish to put on your creations. You may bring as many pumpkins as you would like. We provide the moss for one large pumpkin and you may purchase additional moss if you wish (but usually you have plenty!).

The creations you make are endless. Some people bring a set of mini pumpkins or gourds, and last year, we even created succulents on fake hipster skulls (that was in style last year and so much fun).

Some attendees adorned their creation with mini battery operated lights too. We are very creative in our workshops. Go spooky, formal, autumn themed, or any style you wish. That is part of the creative process we enjoy in our workshops.


As usual, full instruction is given on succulent care, how to propagate your succulents after the centerpiece season is passed, and we will be introducing some “new and trending” succulents at this year’s workshop. Tools to use are provided at the workshop. It is always a great fall workshop and coffee is provided with some sweets. Sometimes we have surprise decor goodies to offer you too. Documentation and handouts are provided as part of this workshop.

Cathy Testa of Container Crazy CT always ensures quality products with lots of learning information, so if you want to have fun, create and learn – this workshop is for you. The creation lasts well beyond fall time with appropriate care and you may make the succulents last via the propagation steps we teach you in the workshop. We also offer a FREE Follow-up Live Video on more care tips after the workshop date for your continued learning when you are ready to propagate the succulents later. Fresh succulents are obtained for our workshops so you have nice choices to work with.
