Decorating with Pumpkins
By H. Iacobacci-Miller
With the onset of fall, a new color palette appears. The leaves are changing and the scenery is full of rustic oranges and yellows. It's also time to start decorating for Halloween and then Thanksgiving. What if you don't want to change your decor so frequently or you're not really into ghosts and goblins?
Pumpkins can be a terrific way to decorate throughout the fall and cover both Halloween and Thanksgiving. Pumpkins can be used to create interesting center pieces for holiday tables. Pumpkins can also be used to spruce up your porch for fall.
Decorating with pumpkins is simple and relatively inexpensive. You can use real pumpkins or even ceramic pumpkins that can be used year after year.
Decorating with pumpkins can be as simple as going to your local grocery store and selecting pumpkins in various sizes and arranging them on your dining room table with dried fall leaves. For your porch, use various sized pumpkins in a group around a pot of bright colored mums. Pumpkins also look great lining your stairways.
You don't have to be an artist to decorate with pumpkins. Just use what nature has given!
