Preppy Pumpkins!

=an you believe that Halloween is right around the corner! In just one short week, you will be celebrating in black and orange! I am certainly excited of course because I just love holidays, and decorating for them! My plan for Halloween weekend is to eat plenty of pumpkin bars, drink pumpkin spice lattes and hot apple cider, and carve pumpkins! How do you like to carve your pumpkin? I was thinking this year that I would go with putting my monogram on my pumpkin! I would have a preppy monogrammed pumpkin! I've also seen other pumpkins that were painted pink and green, and if you look at the Lilly Pulitzer facebook page, you can see Lilly decorated pumpkins! How creative!
I found the above picture on Google images, and think it is too cute! This would be so simple to do. Just trace the letters and then carve away! What are you plans for Halloween weekend? Have a great day!

Outfit of the day (it is so warm here!!!)

Jacket: Brooks Brothers, Shorts: Ralph Lauren, Jewelry: David Yurman, Watch: Invicta

I don't know if you already follow this blog...but check out 3 peanuts! She put a project for a similar monogram pumpkin, but you modge podge the monogram from scrap book paper. REALLY CUTE! I have my white pumpkin ready for this weekend! It works better for me, as I live in a high rise and think a carved pumpkin might smell after a few days inside!

I blogged about pumkins today, too! Yes, definitely take advantage of the pumpkin spice latte while they're still around. Although, egg nog and peppermint lattes are right around the corner!
