Though it doesn't take cooler weather to get me in the mood for any kind of decorating, it does help with holiday decorating. As I previously mentioned, I don't decorate too much for the fall season, I do however, use a lot of the inspirational pictures that I may find on the Internet, save them to a specific file called just that "inspiration". I take my Flip with me where ever I go, and film decorations from anywhere I see something unique, then I will often incorporate something from several of the pictures into ideas for Christmas, or a New Years Eve party. Nonetheless, I love these pictures I found. Some were found online and a few from my Sunset Magazine (my fav - love it!). There are so many wonderful and beautiful pieces out there right now to be as creative as you want. I must say for some reason I am a bit obsessed with these naturally white pumpkins (ghost pumpkins), and even the very light green ones. I love unique things, not one for following and adhering to only what's so called " in style" at the moment, it has to be something that really touches me. And, these white pumpkins have my mind racing with ideas. So, tomorrow...my mission is to go out to every pumpkin patch, farmer's market, and fruit stands in my town until I find them. Since I have a lot of palm trees in my yard, and yep, some need a little trimming...the palm fronds will be part of my Thanksgiving table scape this year along with those adorable white pumpkins. Wish me luck, I keep hearing that there is a pumpkin shortage this year, but never under estimate a woman on a pumpkin mission!!!
