Today Show Pumpkins

October 13th, 2011


For the last few years I’ve had the opportunity to carve pumpkins for Better Homes & Gardens TV segments. Usually it involves the marketing team selecting pumpkin designs from BHG.com, me running all over town gathering supplies (Thank goodness there is now a Michaels on the UWS!), making the pumpkins, then delivering them to the set at the crack of dawn. (One year my friend Alicia and I rode in a taxi with a scarecrow. Um. Hilarious.). I have watched the segments a few times and sat in the green room to warm up, but Live TV is a little too nerve-wrecking for me! This year I was able to deliver the pumpkins to Meredith’s New York office and watch the show at home.
