Every fall, I buy gourds and usually sprinkle them on my dining room table with seasonal fresh flowers. This year with funds being tighter than normal buying fresh flowers weekly is not in the budget. Therefore, I had to improvise. I was at Trader Joes and saw these rosemary topiaries. I loved the shape and the way herbs look inside the home. For $7.99 (even if they last a month) – that’s $7.99 divided by 4 comes out to just under $2.00 a week. Where can you by a bouquet of flowers for that? I wanted olive trees but our local nursery doesn’t get them in until Christmas time. The rosemary looks great and feels festive. I’m still looking for something rustic to put them in or use to burlap and tie them with raffia or twine. For under $20.00 you can buy some gourds and fresh herbs and dress up your dining room table to give it a little fall feeling. Living in LA where it can be 80’ we have to pretend it’s the holiday season.
