Pumpkins Part 2

Let the pumpkin decor continue!  Today's ideas can be featured inside and outside of your home.  I hope these can get your creative juices flowing.  October is just around the corner!

Square wreaths are a great break from the norm and this leafy one, is no different.  You can bring the colorful foliage from the trees right to your front door.  And although the "pumpkin" part of this idea is minimal, it is the perfect accent to create a harvest welcome.  And it can be featured all the way through Thanksgiving!

These painted pumpkin topiaries offer another way to welcome guests and trick-or-treaters to your home.  The painted trees and punched out stars are a simple and unexpected way to dress up your pumpkins and front porch.

Boo!  You can create your own spooky pumpkin message with the help of a plunger apple corer.  Who said it could only be used on apples?   

This design takes little to no effort, but look how classic and timeless the end result is!  All you need is a footed stand, a bag of moss and a pumpkin.  It can't get much easier than that.

Fall is finally here which means fall fashions are about to hit the streets as well.  Why not transfer your favorite fall patterns to your pumpkin.  After all, nothing says autumn like a little argyle and plaid.

Continuing with the paint theme, check out these metallic beauties.  If plaid and argyle aren't your style, that's okay.  Let your imagination can go wild.  Even a simple polka dot has a new look when it's done with metallic paint.  For a bigger statement, showcase all of your pumpkins together.  Make a day of it and have each member of the family create their own works of pumpkin art.  When they all are put together, they're sure to make a bold statement.

New Coffee Table

After more than a year of debate, I've finally decided on and ordered us a new coffee table! As mentioned here , there were several styles I was considering.  However, in the end the tufted ottoman came out on top.  Not only was it versatile, so it can be used for years to come, but it also will be good for when we have kiddos down the road.  I can't tell you how many people I know who have had to either remove their coffee tables for the safety of their kids' noggins or have had to add those tacky corner protectors.  I did not want to invest in a new piece only to have to stow it away down the road.  So this seemed to be the perfect solution.  And thanks to my Joss & Main membership, it turned out to be the perfect price too. I was all set to order a tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs.  I had already received a swatch sample of the fabric I selected and everything.  But a few days later, I got a notification from Joss & Main of a sale event called The Tufted C

Auden's First Birthday-Pumpkins and Pearls

It's only been 6 months now, but better late than never, right? Auden turned one on November 11th and we celebrated at our home with close family and friends.  The theme of the party was pumpkins and pearls.  Pun'kin is one of the nicknames I called her when she was little and pearls bring a girly flair and tied into our reveal party when we found out we were having a girl so it seemed perfect. I had so much fun creating her invitation and all of the party printables.  And for a little extra adornment, the invites were tied with jute twine and placed in scalloped envelope. Invites available for purchase here . Here's the sweet birthday girl in her homemade hat.  I love how the bow on top turned out :)  Her birthday stats poster is now available here . The smash cake table with our go-to milk jars (Starbuck frappuccino glasses) with paper straws.  The tree slab plate they are sitting on was also used at our wedding.  The smash cake was a $10 cake from Public and

Food for Thought

I apologize for my absence these last few days. I started a new job last week as a event planner consultant for the local paper and have been quite busy. Nevertheless, I'm back now. First I'd like to share a yummy recipe I discovered last week. In case you don't know, I am not a big veggie lover. So when I find a good recipe that has veggies in it, I get really excited. Such was the case last week. My hubby and I buy zucchini on almost every grocery visit. However, the only thing we usually put it in is a stir fry recipe we like to make. This is good for me because the zucchini taste is masked by peppers, teriyaki sauce and chicken. I can eat it. Well last Wednesday I wasn't in the mood for stir fry, but I really needed to use my zucchini before it went bad. So I went on a search for a good zucchini recipe. And what should I stumble upon, but zucchini chips. And they were very good! Here is the recipe. Ingredients" 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs 1/4
