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.
