The other day Jeff and I went to Michaels and bought a few things to decorate the house. We normally only decorate for Christmas but decided to change it up this year.
I had some vases and those yummy smelling pinecones so we added some pumpkins, nuts and fake foliage to our collection.
First up, our coffee table. I love these pumpkins and they way the look in the clear containers.
The side table.
Our kitchen table.
Yesterday we decided to carve our pumpkins and invited everyone over for some dinner after. Up first, Kalea’s pumpkin.
We didn’t have any premade stencils this year so we picked the easiest things that came to mind. For Kalea that was Hello Kitty.
While I worked on Kalea’s pumpkin, Crystal worked on Brooky’s. You can see her sketching it out behind K in the above picture.
As soon as we were done with the carving (everyone except for Danny) we headed inside for dinner.
After dinner I had one more project for the girls. We were going to decorate a pumpkin with some tissue paper and glue, a la Young House Love.
Each of the girls had a hand full of dots. I coated the pumpkin and let them at it. It was a bit of chaos, but they had fun.
After that, the girls had a mini dance party in the garage.
Even Noellie joined in.
The finished products…Crystal did a really good job on Brooky’s penguin pumpkin!
And Danny’s unfinished pumpkin…to be continued.
And the dried patched up pumpkin. I think it turned out pretty good!
Unfortunately I won’t be home to enjoy our pumpkins lit on Halloween, but Jeff will be!
