Pumpkins

Weddings.. Not something I would have normally associated with each other, but oh my how well they worked together. Never before been asked to do pumpkins for a wedding, but I really hope in the future I get asked again. I loved making them. The colours in them were absolutely and I just think they looked fab.

I was a bit disappointed the reception didn't have the tables set up ready when we got there. It would have been so lovely to be able to see them actually in Situ, but I think you can get the idea from the photos above.
And the best one of all was the one I made for the top table. Thankfully the wedding was for friends of mine or I would never have had the courage to do this, but as you can see from the photo below I just couldn't resist.  I had spoken to the grooms Mum about it when I picked the pumpkins up from her and we both agreed they all needed carving but obviously I wasn't going to go that far with them. The original plan was to write Congratulations or Boo with the OO's turned into eyes, however have you tried to find a pen that will write on a pumpkin? It just wasn't happening, so in the end I raided the bits and bobs draw and found the eyes and nose.
