Pumpkins on Parade
September 11, 2009
I adore stylish groupings of unusual pumpkins on tabletops and porches. This early in autumn, I am not interested in anything carved – after all, that’s what October is for. Rather, I am drawn to the creative use of still life, branches, leaves and gourds to welcome the cooler weather. Here are some of my favorite images of porches and centerpieces that require no carving whatsoever.

From Martha Stewart:
Are you inspired? I am. You know what I am thinking? I’ve seen the idea of metallics floating around and I love it ! I’ll probably glaze some gourds in subtle shades of taupe, champagne and bronze. Inject some succulents. Embellish with glittery ribbons. Add some hand painted elements. We’ll just see wherever the creativity strikes.
Have a great autumn weekend everyone ! Fall leaves, football games, crisp evenings. Don’t you just love it ?
