free pumpkin to use and I got some flowers for three bucks and decided to make a little arrangement.
I remember reading in an Etiquette book once that flowers weren't a good hostess gift because the host/hostess has to stop what they are doing in their preparations to find a vase to put them in - so it's kind of a hassle (but, whatever!). So, I thought by bringing them already in something that would be okay, or if she already had a centerpiece planned for her table she could put it somewhere else in her house.
I just cut open the pumpkin, pulled the guts out, sprinkled the fresh flower pack in, put in a little water, cut of the flowers to the right height and stuck them in the pumpkin! So easy.
