Seeing all those sunflowers and pumpkins at the pumpkin festival last weekend got me thinking of a colorful floral arrangement for the season! Trader Joe's is seriously my best friend when it comes to flowers. Their selection is amazing and the prices are beyond reasonable. I always find what I'm looking for because they carry such a variety and the flowers are really fresh since they are brought in every morning. Every Fall, they sell these super cute pumpkins on a stick! They actually aren't pumpkins but ornamental eggplants. Who knew? So I grabbed one bunch of those and one bunch of sunflowers and arranged a simple piece that's Halloween appropriate and easy to do. BUT, be careful because these "pumpkin tree" stems have mean little thorns that I completely forgot about. Dang, did those suckers hurt! But beauty is pain, right? The sunflowers will soon die off but the "pumpkins" last a long time, so just remove the sunflowers and you'll still have a festive center piece that will carry you on to November.
