Gussied Up Gourds

• 20 October 2008
























I'm seeing exotic gourds all over the place these days--at nurseries, farms, in my CSA box and even Target of all places. I picked up a few specimens at Rosewood Gardens on 3300 S. and attempted an Autumn arrangement of sorts. I dressed them up with some satin ribbon from The Lace Place on Highland to add color and texture. I attached ribbons with pearl pins for a clean look.

So go ahead, and make your own arrangment, and if you end up uploading them, send me a link :)

lovely...I always pick up a few pumpkins in varying colors and sizes, and adorn them with black ribbons. I spray paint some of them with gold paint, and use them as festive decor through Thanksgiving. I'm liking your use of the pretty green squash...very organic!

I like the ribbon - I've never thought of adding embellishment.
