Pumpkin Farm Day!!

So here we are at the pumpkin farm, picking pumpkins and corn stalks for the wedding. 3 weeks to go. Me with the bride and groom.


I have never ridden in a car full of cornstalks. I felt like a scarecrow. It was so worth the trip though. We got 100 baby pumpkins, small, medium and large pumpkins. All varieties and sizes, as well as cornstalks. I think they will be great as the decorations for the wedding.



I hope you are all having a wonderful Fall weekend!!

Rosemary... Where is this pumpkin farm? I was just thinking the other day that I haven't seen one anywhere. I just moved from Lakewood/Long Beach to La Habra. They were not hard to find in my old area. Maybe Brea or Placentia or Yorba Linda... Just a little odd not to see one.

What a fun day! Last time I was at a pumpkin patch I had to drive out in the field....got stuck in the mud and had to be towed out, it's funny now but it wasn't then.

Look forward to seeing the wedding decorations.

Rosemary
Your wedding decorations will be gorgeous! We were married in October as well and had our reception at a golf and country club - outside the reception hall were bails of hay and indian corn and pumpkins and the golf course was surrounded by Maples. Perfect for those of us who love Autumn :-}

Adorable baby pumpkins! They're so fun all lined up there, they look a bit like a marching band!

Should add a lot to the wedding decor, very clever!

Rosemary, it looks like you had so much fun! You and your daughter are so beautiful! And her fiance is a total babe too. A car full of babes, pumpkins, and cornstalks. I do love picking out pumpkins. Such a great time.
