Every year that Ivan Allen has held it, I have participated in it...the annual East Tennessee Children's Hospital Pumpkin Decorating Contest. This year I have gone on a little different track than I normally do and have done one that might be considered creepy. I saw the idea last year for spider sacks as home decoration but interpreted with a pumpkin for this year's entry. The intent was for the pumpkin to remain very prominent in the final design. I think I did an ok hybrid. The purpose of all of this is that all the pumpkins decorated for the event are taken to Children's Hospital the next day and put on display for the kids areas. I have never gone to track them down in the hospital but maybe I will investigate this year. It is a great event that Ivan Allen puts together for architects and interior designers in the area. It allows us to be creative for a cause.
