Fall-themed week


The weather finally feels crisp and breezy (perfect for wool sweaters!), so I'd love to do fall-themed posts this week. To kick things off, here are four ways to decorate pumpkins, including making them gold. Wouldn't they look pretty on a mantle or a dinner table?

These are all fantastic! I was feeling a little blase about decorating lately but now I’m so inspired! I am doing that first one, asap.

Charlotte said...

Definitely wouldn't say no to having a couple of golden pumpkins around the place!

using the pumpkin as a centerpiece looks super cute!

LaneyLee said...

this is such a fun idea.. i'm so original with pumpkins (just your basic carving and baking the seeds) so i never really thought about doing something like this. i love it though!

Oh man, I love the idea of using a pumpkin for a vase - whimsy chic.

Stephanie said...

Ooh, I need to take a cue from this and buy some pumpkins! Our house isn't looking very autumnal yet, and now that it finally feels like fall I think that needs to change. :-)

What fabulous ideas. If it was a cooler fall and the pumpkins made it through November, my mother would paint the pumpkins silver and gold put ribbons on them and use them for Christmas decorations.

I am having an amazing Giveaway of Plush Pumpkins from Love Feast!

These look so pretty! I love the idea of painting them a bright color to place on the dinner table.

Briana said...

I had to do a double-take... I didn't realize that the vase was also, in fact a pumpkin! Very clever. Very cute!

Jenn LaPlante said...

I love how fall fever is sweeping the nation literally just like a cool autumn breeze! I made pumpkin pie incense last night to get the house nice and cozy scented http://bit.ly/SZGQDl

Happy fall to all!

I absolutely love the gold pumpkin. Fall is the best time of year, so feel free to post as much as you want about it. :)

Oh man, it's too funny that you posted this today- I just posted a slightly, ahem, snarkier take on decorative gourds on my blog this morning. Check it out if you're in the mood to guffaw loudly: http://isandwasblog.blogspot.com/2012/10/decorative-gourd-season.html.

Thanks for sharing, Joanna- these are adorable!

Jessica Parsons-Taylor said...

Err...how about a link that actually works- http://isandwasblog.blogspot.com/2012/10/decorative-gourd-season.html

There you go. :)

Elizabeth said...

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. The changes in the season and on the trees make it feel like anything is possible, and the long days make me feel so productive and positive.

Sarah Tucker said...

This is a post I was in search of. Can't wait to have gold pumpikins on my table :)

Notes from Holly St. said...

Love these pretty centerpieces but I'm so envious of your cool, crisp weather. It's 100 degrees in LA today! It feels like an endless summer and I'm dreaming of cooler days ahead.

katilda said...

I just posted today about all my Fall decor/craft/style/etc plans! I want glitter pumpkins.

ohseems said...

It's actually my first real fall! Maybe I shall create a fabulous decorative pumpkin this year.

VintageDanielle said...

I started my halloween/autumn decorating tonight and I noticed I have so many pumpkins! All are orange but maybe next year, I go chic and try gold and white.

hilda said...

its just well thought out and really fantastic to see someone who knows how to put these thoughts down so well.
