Teal Pumpkin Wreath Hero Banner

Let’s talk teal pumpkins. Unless you have been living under a Halloween rock, you have probably seen teal pumpkins at the store. Most stores that carry pumpkins have them. Do you know what they are for? Teal pumpkins let kids with food allergies and their parents know that this house has something safe for them. This practice all started with the Teal Pumpkin Project by F.A.R.E. It is a great movement and something near and dear to my heart as the mom of a kid with severe food allergies. Every year not only do I have a teal pumpkin on my doorstep with plenty of safe treats I also go that extra teal pumpkin decorating mile – because of course, I do.

Don’t let the 4th of July slip by without a single decoration. If you work quickly you could have a patriotic Christmas tree ready before the fireworks begin. Decorating for the 4th does not have to be elaborate or over the top it could be as simple as a wreath or garland. However, if the urge to decorate a full on 4th of July themed Christmas tree strikes—don’t let me stop you!
