Fall Decorating: Pumpkins and Other Things

It's that time.  Yes, grab those kiddos and head to the pumpkin patch and apples orchards.

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.

1.  Unexpected Colors

2.  Unique Idea

3.  Add Some Sparkle

4.  Light up the Night

If you're looking for inspiration, check out this pinterest board.  I'll be added more pins to it all season, I'm sure. 

Have a pleasant day and get out there and have fun with your family.  While you're at it, why not make your life more beautiful in the process?

  4. Hi,

    I'm popping by through the GTKY hop. Nice to meet you. :) We don't celebrate Hallowe'en in any big way in the UK, but I have to say, those glittery pumpkins look very cool. My usual line on Thanksgiving is also a bit 'wish we did that, because the world would definitely be a better place if...' :D

    Have a great weekend, and take care.
