Decorating with Pumpkins for Impact
It’s Fall, y’all! One of the most iconic symbols of fall is the pumpkin. This time of year, you can find them anywhere from grocery stores to nurseries and pumpkin patches. Pumpkins are the perfect décor item to use to fully encapsulate the fall feeling.
Not only are pumpkins visually pleasing, they are quite practical to use. A healthy pumpkin or gourd will last the entire season and can be used indoors or out. Many are edible and used in various recipes, so you can really get the most out of your pumpkin by using it in a recipe after it has served its decorative purpose.
Most people think of orange when they think of a pumpkin, but they come in all colors. There are whites, blues and greens, even more pink colored pumpkins and gourds. They also come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Pumpkins can be incorporated into any fall style, from a minimalist look with whites and sage greens to a whimsical look with oranges and deep greens and blues with bumpy texture.
There are infinite ways to decorate with pumpkins and gourds. Form masses of pumpkins around steps to create a framed focal point or use them as other decorative elements in the space. A bale of hay or pine straw could be a base that you surround with pumpkins and mums. Combine pumpkins with other harvest style fruits and vegetables such as apples and corn to create a centerpiece. Smaller pumpkins can even be incorporated into a wreath or table setting.
