Metropolitan Signature Juice Metro OJ.

 

 

ORANGE: Boosts immune system with high doses of Vitamin C.

 

CARROT: Promotes brighter and more even skin tone.

 

GINGER: Is known to reduce the pain of headaches and migraines.

 

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS JUICE?

“Like so many working women out there, I work long hours and hit a wall around 3pm. My go-to is usually chocolate. The Metro OJ appealed to me because in the afternoon the juice curbs my sweet craving. I tend to get sporadic headaches when I don’t eat chocolate and so I liked the idea of incorporating ginger to combat that ache—plus the orange is invigorating!” —Karyn, Flagship Store Manager

Seeking more optimism and creativity? We encourage bringing orange into one’s life for an uplifting experience. Our Mango color energizes and refreshes the mind and body. As the name implies, it’s smooth and sweet.

Follow these steps to create your own beautiful Maine Cottage® Grand Mum pumpkin. If anyone creates their own pumpkin we’d love to see photos. We will post them on the blog and Facebook. Please send all photos to amber@mainecottage.com.

Tools:
You will need the following to complete your carving.

  • One pumpkin
  • Pumpkin Carving Kit — we purchased ours from Target
  • Speedball Linoleum Cutters — allows you to make fine cuts into pumpkin
  • One glass or mason jar — we will use this to wrap the lights around to place in pumpkin
  • String of lights or candle
  • Template of your choice
Instructions

Step 1

Using a Sharpie draw a circle around the top of the pumpkin


Step 2

Following the line you just drew use the saw tool to cut the top out.


Step 3

Scoop out all the seeds — the fun part ;)


Step 4

Place template onto pumpkin


Step 5

Trace template onto pumpkin. There are several different methods and it really depends on the complication of the template. We poked holes in the template and then placed marker over top those holes to ensure we were cutting out the correct parts.


Step 6

Wrap lights around glass or jar and place inside pumpkin. Plug in and enjoy the beauty. Of course you can also substitute good ole candles.


Have fun with it, it doesn’t have to perfect that’s the fun of it all. As you can see our design was inspired by Grand Mum Fabric but we didn’t hold ourselves to having to be 100% accurate, some artistic freedom is wonderful.

Here’s our final pumpkin, lit up and ready for our trick-or-treaters!

HAPPY PUMPKIN CARVING FROM MAINE COTTAGE! Don’t forget to send us your creations.
