Make party-ready votives out of funky gourds

I threw a party the other night and these three funky gourd votives made an appearance. They got lots of compliments from party guests, so I thought I'd share this simple autumnal party decor idea with mah Homies.

Happy autumn harvest celebration, everyone!

Homies, we have a nice little community here. We brainstorm solutions to problems, share fantasies, debate, and educate. I want to take a second to be grateful for my online family, of which you are a large part. We can't share a meal this week and we probably won't be sending each other Winter Holiday Greetings, but I can still say, "Hi everybody. It's so nice to put this site together for you."

Here are some of the posts which have hosted some of the most enlightening conversations this year.
