ELEVATED PUMPKINS

It’s pumpkin season and never before have pumpkins been so sophisticated!  From ghost white to shades of grey and blood orange hues, the specialty pumpkins, gourds and squash in our pumpkin patch are a decorator’s dream. To celebrate this beautiful variety, we couldn’t help but get a little bit creative. Here are a few pieces of inspiration to take your pumpkins and gourds to new heights.

STACK ‘EM UP

Instead of storing away your garden obelisk after your climbers are finished for the season, use it to take your pumpkins and gourds up a level.

How to: Simply stack pumpkins and gourds in and around the structure for a visually surprising and earthy element to your home.  Take it a step further by stringing a few strands of mini-lights through and around the arrangement so that it can be enjoyed in the dark!

EASY PUMPKIN MACRAME

Believe it or not, macramé has made a big comeback in home décor in recent years. This is a great way to change up any hanging displays you might have in your home already, or a great reason to add a hanging element to your home.

How to: Simply hang your choice of pumpkin or gourd using a macramé plant holder. Here, you can DIY using twine or rope that you have around the house, or stop in and pick up one of our cute little wooden beaded hangers.  This easy hanger can be placed indoors or outdoors.
