Traditionally, we would just grab a few pumpkins, gourds, hay bails, and cornstalks and call it good. But that simplicity is a thing of the past. I recently heard that, with the exception of Christmas, people spend more money on Halloween than any other "holiday." I, personally, am not into Halloween. I prefer to just decorate for fall in general, but it all goes hand in hand.
In a effort to save money, buy transition pieces that could work for eitherHalloween or Thanksgiving. For example, I picked up this little beauty at a craft supply in town. The colors work with my decor in the room and will work for any season.
But everyone knows if you're serious about fall decorating you must have pumpkins.
Here are a few examples of some very beautiful, interesting, or just plain fun pumpkin decorating ideas I found to share with you today.
