Pumpkins & Pumpkins & Pumpkins:               PUMPKINS Are Soooooo MUCH
               FUN! FUN! FUN! FUN!                                                          
Whether carving & decorating,
eating, or being used as serving pieces,
Pumpkins are so versatile!
As a Floral Designer,
I always plan first for the
Centerpiece, Tablescape and Decorations.

Then, I decide which dinnerware
goes along with that particular theme or look.
...Using Pumpkins as Serving Bowls or Centerpieces makes that trip to The Pumpkin Patch an extra special memory...

I especially appreciate
how our friends at Wal-Mart
have given us a step-by-step guide on a
DIY Pumpkin arrangement with fresh flowers.
You can also do the same
set-up with fall leaves,
silk flowers or a
beautiful fall blooming plant.

Welcome, Fall!!
That time of the year when the kids
get back in school,
the stores begin to put out
the holiday merchandise,
and the weather begins to get cooler...
(Thank goodness!
Y'all know how hotttt it gets in Texas!)
Now's the time to get creative with your
holiday décor and planning.
Got our bestest little shopping buddies
(Minnie Mouse & friend!)
and perusing the treasures
at PB Outlet to find just what we need
for our Fall Holiday Home Decorating, 

Holiday Tablescapes and Door Wreaths.
The kids love to be included

in Holiday Decorating!
..."Just Making Memories!"...

The time to create or renew
and dust off the HOLIDAY SERVING PIECES.
Remember the cherished heirloom
silver trays from your Grandmother,
and any other special items in your Party/Entertaining closet?
Now's the time to inventory those items for the Holiday Celebrations...

It's a good idea to take photos from previous holidays as a reminder of the look/themes used.  Create a Holiday Journal complete with décor, recipes, table linens, menus & wine lists. :
