I wanted to share with you the gifts I made for my girlfriends.
~Succulent Pumpkin Centerpieces~
I went to Trader Joe's and found just the
right size pumpkins for the centerpieces.
I sprayed the center of the pumpkins with some adhesive spray.
I then added sphagnum moss I bought from a local nursery.
We have succulents growing in our garden,
so I just picked some different varieties.
I then glued them down with a hot glue gun. I read about this technique from designer Laura Eubanks. She had been a guest on a video featuring garden photojournalist, Debra Lee Baldwin.
I loved how they all turned out.
An hour or two of morning sun and misting will give you a beautiful
Fall Succulent Pumpkin Centerpiece.
I also made some bite size Spice Muffins.
Wrapped up with a cute tag.
Just the right gifts for special friends.
In the garden we picked our carrots, pumpkins and fresh eggs from the chicken coop.
I also stopped by the nursery and picked up some different ornamental cabbages.
I love the different color greens and purples in the garden.
I couldn't resist some stock too, love the beautiful scent.
I saw the chickens were exploring today.
Doria and Lucy like the ornamental cabbage too!!
Hope you're all enjoying Fall in your gardens!
