a simple pumpkin centerpiece anyone can do

hello everyone!  it’s me tiffini over at house of belonging
i will be short and sweet because if any of you are feeling frantic being torn by being a working mom & just a “mom” mom like
i have been lately

i took this last weekend and inserted some rest time for me
one of the things i wanted to do was have a sit-down dinner with the kids

a simple pumpkin centerpiece anyone can do - so you can concentrate on the most important thing - who is around the table

i wanted a SIMPLE PUMPKIN CENTERPIECE for the table
i wanted it to be FALLish not HALLOWEENish for this occasion
i remembered seeing a flower filled pumpkin on the cover of a magazine a few weeks back!

a simple pumpkin centerpiece anyone can do - so you can concentrate on the most important thing - who is around the table

here’s what i did

i ran to the local grocery store looking for creamy white flowers.  mind you we are in rural missouri so there isn’t markets everywhere
and the flower selection was scarce

mini roses were all they had in a white.  CHECK

i had a pumpkin from our visit to the pumpkin patch with the grandkids.  CHECK

i hallowed out the inside
filled it with water
trimmed the stems down
and arranged the flowers in the pumpkin

we had leaves already so we made a little “blanket” of leaves to sit the pumpkin on
added a couple of our small pumpkins around.  CHECK

simple and pretty

at the end of the day it is those faces that matter
it’s not how fancy or expensive or perfect it seems

just taking a little extra time to make the table pretty
to be thankful to be able to sit around a table of food and enjoy one another

TIPS…..:)

-you could use fall colored flowers or leaves

-you could use a white pumpkin or the brighter orange

various size pumpkins

-you can paint the pumpkins

-you could setup a little vignette of fall goodness and add in some halloween touches for the night

it will take you through until thanksgiving..just keep changing it up a little

have a fun and safe halloween…i think we are having a little fire pit time with smore’s and hotdogs
what plans do you have for halloween night?

see you next month:)

new shirt shop & new “news”

good morning!  i have been MIA on the blog .. sorry!  life is happening..that is a good thing
but i miss writing and i am FULL of stories
to be honest i just don’t have a lot of extra time with working the business
but God has given us a testimony…out of a “test” that has been over 15 years long
with much grace and vulnerability i am going to begin writing our God- story…here

yes…old people still kiss
and no..it isn’t a “movie screen” shot but it
is every bit as precious to me!

i don’t share much on our home but i thought i’d share a peek at our first real living room set
we have raised 5 kids and never had 1.) money and 2.) why buy new furniture with 5 kids right?
times have sure changed though since we raised our bunch though

we went to ikea and i am sold! #ikea
things are very well made and affordable enough for the average family
even if you save up for it piece by piece like we did

a peek into our #exodushome  houseofbelonging.com

we have a NEW SHIRT SHOP
this has got to be the biggest news
peeps are still trying to buy shirts from our Etsy sign shop
they are no longer there

they would make awesome christmas gifts!
