Oooh, I can feel the air getting just a bit cooler every day! OK, maybe it’s wishful thinking, but my wreath is on the door, and mums on the porch. Several pumpkins purchased, but it is still a little warm here to put them outside. Have I mentioned… I LOVE PUMPKINS?! Orange ones, white ones… even those weird green-colored ones!
So… in keeping with all this anticipation, I want to share 11 great ideas focusing on pumpkins!
Who doesn’t adore this look from Pottery Barn for an entry or a wedding? Wouldn’t you just love to see beyond?? This scene certainly draws you in!
And, speaking of entries, here’s another that is so attractive. Janis at All Things Beautiful created a wonderful play of lights at her front door, including the lighted pumpkin topiaries!
Yet another idea pairing pumpkins with lights. This one doesn’t involve carving in any way!
Here are some great ideas for once you get inside the house:
I LOVE this vignette from Christie at Three Pixie Lane:
And this one for a buffet! Look at the creative way they elevated the food atop the pumpkins and varied the heights! Isn’t this just gorgeous?
Here’s one of mine… a fall centerpiece using white pumpkins:
And who can think pumpkins without thinking of recipes?? Here is a yummy pumpkin pound cake from my friend Myra at My Blessed Life:
Oooo, don’t these pumpkin bars look delish?
And, of course, a couple of craft ideas are fun! Check out the bling on these gourds:
The ones on the left look like they have jewel appliques affixed to them, and the pic on the right shows pumpkins decorated with upholstery tacks!
Here’s a fun (and thrifty) craft project I did recently… How to Make a Burlap Pumpkin:
And this idea is just pain FUN! Dip into your button collection and glue or pin them on! (I think these are actually black, but they sure look navy in this photo.)
Well, that about wraps up this round-up!! Go out there and enjoy this pumpkin season! Gourd ahead. (Sorry… couldn’t resist!)
