spruce up your home for spring

Spring is here and as summer surely approaches the markets are filling up on lots of colorful produce. Grab a bag of citrus fruits for your dinning table or a bowl of colorful spring green apples. There's nothing more special than small touches of organic elements around your home to welcome you and your guests. Go a step further and pick some fragrant lilac from your garden (if your lucky enough to have one) or take advantage of the deals at your local farmers markets and grocers on fresh spring blooms. The sweet smell of fresh flowers in your home will lift your spirits. Spring has sprung so let's enjoy all mother-nature has to offer!

Pumpkin Planter


Greet your guests with whimsical pumpkin planters on your porch steps or make bring them inside and add that wow factor to your dinning room table scape at your next autumn dinner party. And its so simple to do, here's how...

1.)Gather up some seasonal flowers from your local garden center or supermarket. Keep them in the containers you purchase them in.

2.)Find some pumpkins big enough to accommodate your flower containers.

3.)Cut an opening in the top of your pumpkin just big enough to fit your flower containers and scoop out the pumpkin guts and seeds (save those seeds for roasting!) Drill or carve a small hole in the bottom of the pumpkin for water drainage.

4.)Drop your flowers (still in the container) into the pumpkin, if they sit too low you can use rocks, crumbled newspaper or packing peanuts in the bottom to give your flowers a boost. Voila!

Tips:
Pumpkins will last longer if kept out of direct sunlight.

You can fill the pumpkins with potting soil and just plant the entire arrangement (pumpkin and all) in the ground once the pumpkin starts to rot, although this method does not last as long as the pumpkin will start to decompose from the soil.

Use a variety of flowers and leaves such as drapey vines, tall wispy grasses and colorful flowers.

Paint or draw faces on your pumpkin for a Halloween flair. Group several pumpkin planters together for a bold look.
