Pretty Pumpkins

by Jessica Sturdy on October 9, 2012

I gave you a little preview on Instagram over the weekend, but I’ve been dying to share my latest obsessions with you!

My mom surprised me with these pretty little pumpkins! My mom DIYed these and sent them to me. It was a total surprise. I was sitting at my desk when I received a notice I had a package at reception… “Interesting,” I thought, because I wasn’t expecting anything. Once I opened the large-and-in-charge* box, I uncovered these little babes! Aren’t moms the best?!

* Seriously, the box was huge. Enough bubble wrap and packing peanuts to fill my cubicle, probably. Awkward trying to smuggle the box out of work, as we aren’t allowed to have personal packages delivered to work. Oops! Surprises don’t count, right?! :)

These are beautiful I’d want to have them on display all year round!

I cannot imagine how those got to you and how heavy that box was but they are adorable! I love them sooo much.

They’re actually fake pumpkins so they are rather light. There was just a ton of packaging elements because they are so fragile with all of the embellishments! :)

Love them! Your mom did an amazing job!

These are so cute! Your mom is so crafty :)
If you don’t mind me asking, how do you get the thumbnail image slider that you used for the additional halloween decor? It’s such a sleek way to post links!

OBSESSED – with these, and also with getting surprise packages. Will your mom make me some too?

So pretty! How sweet of your mama to send you that surprise :)


Rose October 9, 2012 at 11:25 pm

Ahh I love the handle at the top of the silver one! I have a feeling I’m going to be on a DIY/thrifting/decorating mission this weekend, and that’s gonna include some spray-painted pumpkins.
