Painted Pumpkins

I feel like last year I went all out for the fall season.

I had a great experience carving a Krystal Burger on my pumpkin. I also decorated my home early for fall. I was definitely on the ball. This year I had a few obstacles. I hosted a themed bridal shower (not fall), I had a couple of weddings to attend and I traveled to Vegas for business. There was little time for fall decorating. So instead of taking time I didn't have to carve pumpkins, I decided to spray paint my pumpkins. 

There are a couple of advantages to this: time and longevity. It takes a few minutes to spray paint your pumpkins. For those of you who are artists, spray painting your pumpkins could be a great way to experiment with graffiti. I am no such artist so I kept it simple.

Another huge perk is that the pumpkin lasts longer than a few days. You put so much time into carving the pumpkin and then you're lucky if it lasts two days before the actual pumpkin looks scarier than the carving.

Busy career girls don't always have the time to go all out to decorate. However, it doesn't mean you can't find some simple ways to  join the season. Even if it's a little late.


  1. I want a hot pink pumpkin (and maybe some glitter)!

  2. I've never thought about painting them before. Good idea. My kids are getting older and aren't interested in carving pumpkins any more and frankly, neither am I! You could really jazz up your porch with painted pumpkins.
