This year, for the first time ever, our Los Angeles store will be selling live pumpkins! Beautiful white and peach fairytale pumpkins, small odd shaped gourds as well as long stemmed orange pumpkins have filled our store over the last week and we couldn't be more excited. pumpkins_2pumpkins

There are so many eclectic varieties outside of the traditional orange jack-o-lantern. One of our favorites is the fairytale pumpkin, it's true name is the Musque De Provence which comes from the varieties original origin of France. Or the mini "Jack-be-little" pumpkins that can last for months if they are kept out of the sun. Another trendy pumpkin is the Australian jarrahdale pumpkin, noticeable by their slate-green coloring and drum shape.

Nothing screams fall more than a good pumpkin and with halloween only 3 weeks away it's time to start picking yours. We love them for decorating a porch or mantel and of course for all the fun do-it-yourself projects.  If you need help in the DIY department we have just the thing for you, our fun succulent pumpkin workshop! The event will be led by Laurie March from HGTV and the DIYNetwork alongside one of our talented arrangement bar baristas on Saturday October 24th at 3p.m. So mark your calendar and don't forget to sign up on our website before all the seats are taken.

For those of you who can handle a small craft on your own we suggest taking a pledge to join in the teal pumpkin project. The halloween project was created  last year by FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) to bring awareness to the 1 in 13 children who suffer from food allergies. Halloween is known for tricks and treats, but unfortunately for children with food allergies halloween traditions can be anything but fun when candy can trigger an allergic reaction. By placing a teal pumpkin in front of your home you are informing the small goblins in the neighborhood that your home has more to offer than candy. FARE suggest non-food items such as stickers, glow sticks and bubbles to promote safety, inclusion, and respect for those managing food allergies.

DIY Pumpkin Succulent Arrangements.

Fall is in full swing & that means: PUMPKINS! We love these squashes of the season and figuring out all the fun new ways to creatively use them each year.  We had our October Learn + Grow Workshop this past Saturday, which is always a fun-filled saturday creating succulent pumpkin arrangements! (If you didn't go, you definitely missed out!) We wanted to share our secrets on how to create our signature pumpkin succulent arrangements!

Step 1

 STEP 1 | Gather up your tools & what you'll need. These items include:

- Pumpkin, any kind will do, but the fairytale pumpkins have always been our favorite! Pumpkins with a flat top will work best for this project. - Moss - Hot Glue or Crafting Glue - As many Succulents as you wish! - Floral Wire

Step 2

Step 2 | Use a hot glue gun (or crafting glue) to adhere the moss onto the top of the pumpkin. You want the moss to be about 1″ deep. Trim the edges when you’re done.

Step 3 Step 4

Step 4 | Begin to arrange the succulents. Start with the large cuttings first and fill in with the smaller ones. Make sure you pack them in tightly and try to shake off as much excess dirt as possible so you can add more in!

Step 5 Step 6 Step 7

Step 5 & 6: Use floral wire cut into small segments and folded in half (like pins!) to keep your succulents in place so they don't slide around on top of your pumpkin. After that, you're all done! You've made your very own Pumpkin Succulent Arrangement. Too easy right?!
