The holidays are here! Thanksgiving has passed and now it's time to get ready for Christmas!
This past Thanksgiving I had 18 people over to my house to eat and needed a centerpiece ASAP. I ALWAYS love decorating with fresh cut flowers when I'm hosting anything because they are gorgeous and an easy way to add elegance to any event. I usually go out to my rose bushes, snip off a lot of them and place them in a milk glass vase. Love milk glass but this Holiday season I wanted something special so here is what I did.
Metallic spray painted pumpkin flower centerpiece
...Things you will need...

a knife & spoon
1.Start out by wiping down your pumpkin then drying it off with a towel
2. On some newspaper outside spray paint your pumpkin and let it dry completely
3. carve your pumpkin by cutting a medium hole around the stem, then take the top off and throw away
4.clean out the inside of the pumpkin with the spoon
5. put some water and flower food in your pumpkin
6. trim your roses diagonally and the length you want
7. arrange them in your pumpkin and enjoy!
I love browsing my local farmers market for fresh fruit, veggies and flowers. The flowers are beautiful and so colorful and fresh. The town that I live in has a farmers market every friday night in Old Town Clovis during certain seasons. Many local businesses come together and sell their home grown/home made goodies. It is so wonderful to support these business that are all growing and selling here is California. I think as a Californian it is important to buy CA GROWN! Not only for the yumminess and perfection but because it helps support the California economy and our local communities!! I choose CA GROWN and look for CA GROWN when grocery shopping and YOU can too! If you can't find it when shopping you can always ask your grocers which products are grown in California. Help support those hard working farmers and growers who put a lot of love and work into what you enjoy!
You can check out where my flowers came from here and let me tell you they were beautiful, came beautifully packaged and smelled gorgeous!..
Grown in Salinas, Ca.
