Pumpkin Inspiration!

Country Living

It's that time of year...my favorite time of year.

I LOVE fall.

The pumpkins and Mums and gourds are in the supermarkets
and farmers markets and everything is
geared towards the changing of the seasons.


Now that I've bought a few pumpkins
I thought I'd look for a little inspiration to help get my
creative juices flowing.

So if you're trying to think of new ways to use your
pumpkins this year....here are a few
idea's for you.

I like the idea above for our farm!

The wreath above is made of corn husks!

I grew gourds like the ones on the right this year.
I don't think mine will be dry enough this year.
 Aren't they cute!

The arrangement above is called a 'mumpkin' :)

I love this idea of cutting a pattern in the outer skin
and cutting it away.

This would be a lot less messy plus the pumpkin would last longer.

I'd love this front porch!

Well...now I need to get working on my own
pumpkin decorating.

If you haven't already started your fall decorating
I hope some of these pictures
have helped inspire you.

Happy Fall!
Have Fun!

I love them all. Something about randomly placed pumpkins like the ones on the steps and porch really stand out though. They are so beautiful just themselves. Have fun with your pumpkins : )

Julie Harward said...

So many great ideas..thanks for sharing them. I loved the ones with flowers all over them, pretty for a table. I wish I had a garden with tons of them! :D

Beatnheart said...

Lots of great ideas! I like all of them and especially like the idea of pumpkins with plates of food on top of them. (Or is it that I just like food? ha!) Have fun decorating!

I LOVE fall.

Me too! I was born on October and I love eberything about the fall, the colours, the smells and here in Somerset, the mists.
I bought squash yesterday, but I am going to eat mine in a lovely creamy soup.
The idea I liked best was the mums in the pumpkin. what a fab idea!
Thanks for sharing x

I like the idea of stringing all the small pumpkins together....
alll mine are too bloody small anyhow so I think I will do that!!!

Robin said...

Fall is such a great time of the year, I love it too. I find I don't decorate for it as much as would like to. Something I'm trying to fix this year. Thanks for the inspriation. I love the pumpkin in the urn with cornhusks - very cool.

Beverly said...

Maura, what beautiful photos and ideas!! Happy Fall!

Joy said...

Hi Maura, the displays are truly inspring. The one with the window boxes gives me an idea of how to decorate mine. Hopefully I can find some free or inexpensive pumpkins and do something similar.

Betsy said...

Thanks for sharing all these great ideas! Lots of inspiration. I also loved the hanging gourds. The mumpkins were so pretty!

Our Country Bungalow said...

These pictures are beautiful. It's hard to pick a favorite! I really like the simple idea of the different sized pumpkins on the steps leading up to the porch.
Love all of them!
