Pumpkins and Succulents

Not too shabby for my first time...

I love the pumpkin and succulent arrangements that start to show up in all the social media feeds this time of year.  My pumpkin story started when I found this beauty at my local grocery store, Farmers Market Place - Sentry2016_10_07

I bought a succulent arrangement for $17. I know the price seems a bit high. I figured by the time I bought several small individual plants, which is what Home Depot had to offer this was more cost efficient and I was able to get two separate arrangements out of the deal. I used the smallest plants out of the grouping. I was happy with the selection. TIP: Next time I will go to a local nursery and buy a flat of small plants.

I wanted to use a doily that I picked up at Trends Vintage Marketplace & Co. a local vintage home & garden store. I cut egg cartons and hot glued them together to add support, and I wanted to be able to remove the arrangement to plant later and hopefully reuse the crochet doily. TIP: Next time I will use the fibrous plantable pots and cut them down.
