The Pumpkin Is You

Lauren Conrad continues to keep the train of pumpkin mania going today with yet another pumpkin story to celebrate Halloween and the best that is fall, Lauren decides to make the pumpkin her own by personalizing the pumpkin in the most effortless way yet.

Now imagine, you want to decorate a pumpkin, but you don’t wanna drown it with paint, or make it too messy, so instead of cutting, carving, scooping, or even mock-tiling your pumpkin, Lauren says all you need are as many pumpkins needed that stay untouched, with acrylic paint and thin paintbrushes.

The whole idea of personalized pumpkins here are to spell out your last name, telling those passing by who admire your fall/ Halloween decorations that you and your clan of husband, wife, kids, pets, and so forth live here in your beautiful surroundings, and this is who you are.

Each pumpkin spells out one letter at a time of your last name, so if Lauren and husband, William Tell, spell out T-E-L-L, then 4 pumpkins are needed at Lauren’s household, good thing it’s not 11 pumpkins spelling out Q-U-I-N-T-A-N-I-L-L-A, Daniel plus Lauren would just spell out D-A-N-I-E-L to reduce the workload.

No matter what you choose to spell out and display on your pumpkins, it’s best that each letter stays in a straight line if you want to connect the next letter spelling out your name, it’s the best way to keep in practice with your skills of utilizing cursive writing.

Celebrating fall at its finest, the LC Lauren Conrad Cable-Knit Crop Sweater readies itself for what’s finally cooler and windy weather arriving in stylish cropped silhouette to eliminate bulkiness, but those hanging onto summer or looking forward to summer’s arrival once again in June 2019 can ooze at the gorgeousness of the swimsuit that is the Marysia Antibes Maillot.

We ❤️ 💕 💗 Pumpkin

Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin, the fall would be like life’s autumn without the short and stocky fruit to spread its versatility in many ways, so the pumpkin crusade continues with Lauren Conrad and her charming crew today opening up the recipe box for pink pumpkin cake pops.

The dream of a pumpkin dessert other than pumpkin pie can only be conceived by the resident baker who is Lauren Lowstan, who’s beautiful desserts always leave a sweet taste in one’s mouth long after the dish is gone, pink pumpkin cake pops are not the typical cake pop in a lollipop, but in the tradition of a frozen pop shaped in a bar.

Delicious white chocolate meets white chocolate dyed in food coloring to make pink that’s drizzled and canvased or vice versa that starts with the cake batter itself from pumpkin puree, sugar, coconut oil, flour, baking soda and powder, and eggs.

This delightful recipe continues by using vanilla, honey, dash of salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves that are followed by the frosting in buttercream or white, white chocolate candy coating, and  pink candy color, plus piping and cookie molds to shape the pink pumpkin cake pops.

Now after cooking instructions to make this wonderful recipe possible, the pink pumpkin cake pops not only are a smash hit at many Halloween parties, but these delightful treats easily rival a miniature candy bar in the trick-or-treat bucket any day, and possibly could replace candy at one’s house on the trick-or-treating route.

The Art of Being Once Removed

Now for those of you scared that there’s gonna be no pumpkin to decorate in this piece, you can breathe a collective sigh of relief, because Lauren Conrad’s Ilana Saul today has plenty of pumpkin to decorate, with inspiration from terrazzo tiles.

Before you say wait a minute, and wonder how a pumpkin’s going to be tiled, that’s the once removed beauty part of this little pumpkin project, there’s no terrazzo tiling, or any form of tiling involved, Lauren’s Ilana relies on their arts and crafts to recreate the terrazzo tile…. on the pumpkin.

A little background about what the terrazzo tile is before delving into this lovely activity, terrazzo tile’s hot in the interior design world right now, terrazzo has been around for centuries consisting of little flecks of marble, granite, or quartz set in polished concrete, commonly for flooring, countertops, and backsplashes.

So to make the terrazzo pumpkin, all you have to do is get yourself some pumpkins of course, 4 to 6 colors of acrylic paint, and small paint brushes where one can follow images of terrazzo tiles to make their pumpkin so there’s help to make large and small flecks.

Now if you were lucky, and rich enough to have terrazzo tile installed in your home recently from a kitchen remodel, or a major home renovation, then you should have no trouble taking your invested pumpkins so they can fall in line with the look of your home to last all season long.
