Pretty Pumpkins

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?! :)

      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! :)

    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!

    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.
