The jack-o-lanterns are in the trash bin, the neon green spider clingies are off the windows, and the giant spider dangling from the front porch ceiling has made its way to the storage room once again. The only thing reminiscent of Halloween is the wispy spider web naturally progressing in my fall wreath hung upon my front door. Yuck, think I’ll let hubby take care of that one.

I am not a florist, nor do I care to learn how to arrange flowers. I would much rather leave that up to the professionals. So when I had a little birthday money in September, I decided to have a professional arrangement made for my Royal Street Urn (see photo insert, this is my actual urn on my dining room table). It was so simple – I picked out the flowers and grasses that I wanted in my arrangement, which happened to be on sale 50% off (if not, use a coupon!). Their floral department charges a 30% arranging fee on top of the cost of the flowers you pick out. To stretch my investment, I asked that they arrange it in an inner container so I could remove the fall arrangement, store it, and decorate my urn for other seasons.
