I think it’s pretty well established that I have a serious pumpkin addiction; as in, I’ve never met a pumpkin I didn’t want to buy. Mike jokingly suggested that next year I should try growing my own pumpkins. CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT, YOU GUYS? What a wonderful disaster that would be. Obviously I’m going to do it.
A few weeks ago Annabel and I were at Trader Joe’s and of course, we were both drawn to the pumpkins. There was a large box of Fairytale Pumpkins, and when I told Annie that’s what they were called she said, “Mama, that’s because they look like Cinderella’s pumpkins!”
That got my wheels turning, and I thought it could be fun to put together some “Princess Pumpkins” for Annie. I gathered up a few accessories, and last night I put them all together after Annie went to bed.
First up was the Cinderella pumpkin that inspired me:
Tiana, from The Princess and the Frog:
Belle from Beauty and the Beast:
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs:
Ariel from The Little Mermaid:
Rapunzel from Tangled:
Merida from Brave.
I have the pumpkins all arranged on our kitchen floor so she can see them as soon as she enters the room in the morning. I am excited to see her reaction! I hope she likes them.
EDITED TO ADD:
She loved them!
She squealed, “Oh my gosh! Those pumpkins are dressed like Princesses!” She then went on to identify who each pumpkin was supposed to be, which is more than some people in this house can do, ahem Mike.
