Here's an easy and fun way to decorate for an outdoor party.  Wrap a bittersweet vine around a tin bucket to transform it into a stylish cooler.  If your creative juices are really flowing in this crisp autumn weather...we recommend wrapping pillars, chair backs, or even outdoor light poles/fixtures.  These vines also look great down the center of your table with simple votive candles mixed throughout.  Happy decorating!!




We are crazy about Pumpkin Topiaries!  Last year was the first year we did them on our front porch.  This year we continued the tradition but added a twist by spray painting the pumpkins a bronze metallic paint!!  How fun they are!  This picture was taken from Southern Living Magazine.  Simply drill holes into the pumpkin, place in your garden urns and add your foliage.  Kids love helping by picking up leaves and sticks from the yard to include.   Add Christmas lights, votive candles, or even the glow in the dark bracelets to illuminate!

Caramel Butter Rum Cheesebake Mix
8 Tbs melted butter
