These flowers are gorgeous, no? You would think that flowers of this kind of beauty are going to set you back at least $10, maybe more. Maybe $7 from your grocer … ?
I got these beautiful roses and the greenery for all of $3.99 from Aldi’s. They have a little flower market (pseudo set up) by the check out and I am always in awe of their flowers. They don’t vary too much. You can always count on roses and a few other things but they’re budget friendly and just so breath taking. In my opinion.
We had this pumpkin laying around from a couple weeks ago after stopping at a road side stand that promised HUGE PUMPKINS … and then my children chose the smallest ones they could find. For one dollar.
I love them.
They had their fun painting the pumpkins and setting it around the house in varies rooms and on different shelves. It was their little decorating game.
So … you need:
# Pumpkin, any size
# Knife, sharp and big
# Flowers or greenery
You start by cutting the top off the pumpkin, gutting it as best you can and then filling it 3/4 full of water (make sure it doesn’t leak). Snip your blooms to your desired height – arrange – and you’re done.
All for just $4.99 – stick that in your pipe and smoke it. Well done, friends!
