I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest. It can be such a fun source of ideas, inspiration and lust. It can also drive me frickin’ bonkers with the overload of matchy-matchy parties with fifty different desserts all piled on a table- are we trying to put six-year olds in a sugar coma? And I have yet to meet a kid that likes to drink out of one of those paper straws regardless of its cuteness.
Total digression (okay, rant), but while we’re here, be sure to check out my Eat Drink Garden Pinterest boards ;-).
Back to good Pinterest. Spotting images of pumpkins filled with fall flowers got me thinking. Pumpkins are everywhere now in such a wide range of colors and textures. Why not venture out of the traditional fall color scheme? I grabbed a white pumpkin we had bought at Von’s and used it as the base for this floral arrangement for a friend.
It was quick to pull together, this whole project from cutting the pumpkin, to scooping out the seeds and picking and arranging the flowers took fifteen minutes. And it was all done in my terry cloth robe— the real world of blogging.
