    October Petalwell Loves...Halloween...

    Halloween is landed in the middle of autumn and winter, a great excuse for decorating your home and throwing a party.

    Carved out pumpkins are the classic Halloween decoration, the choices of what to create with pumpkins are endless, perfect to use outdoors and indoors.  We love to go to a Pumpkin farm a great day out for all the family searching for the perfect pumpkin.

    Besides craving faces in the pumpkin and putting lights inside another great idea we came across is using the pumpkin as a cooler for drinks, simply scoop out the inside and fill with ice. Using the same method you can use smaller pumpkins as serving bowls for dips...very cool!
