  Happy pumpkins & mums!

Happy (almost) Halloween friends! Are you all prepped with oodles of candy for the little ghouls & gobblins? Have your costumes completed and ready to layer on your winter coats and gloves? Did you decorate your front stoop with jack-o-lanterns and black light floods? It is seriously the most wonderful time of the year.

This year we bought two pumpkins. One to carve and one to keep pretty, fingers crossed it lasts up to Thanksgiving. With our 3 year old really into the holiday I was pretty excited to pick up a few battery operated tea lights for our carved pumpkins. The batteries actually worked just as good as the traditional tea lights and we all enjoyed the candle-light-like glow. Total toddler holiday hack.

I really enjoyed picking out pumpkins and mums at Lakewood Garden Center in Lakewood (near St. Eds). They had lots of plants, trees, pots & vessels along with many perennials still hoping to find themselves a good home before winter. They had so many unique pumpkins, they had rows of cornstalks and tables of fall-hued mums. They even let you use their red wagons to pull your selections around the garden center, another toddler treat! LGC_7So if you still need pumpkins, mums or anything garden related before the end of the season, I totally recommend you swing by the Lakewood Garden Center for fall/winter holiday fun. The employees as super helpful and a ton of fun…one even kindly told me I had lipstick on my teeth! HA HA!

LGC_8Happy Halloween you guys. Be safe and have a blast as you roam the CLE neighborhoods begging for candy! Enjoy!LGC_10
