From the Pumpkin Patch!

In preparation for fall, I always like to find new and fun ways to use pumpkins to decorate and brighten-up our home. I found the following ideas for this year. One idea is to cut the tops off of the pumpkins, scoop out the insides, and then place a potted plant, like this season’s lovely chrysanthemums, inside. Aren’t these beautiful as front porch or tabletop d├ęcor?
Another idea is to use all of the fresh vegetables from your garden, or a local farmer’s market, to create a friendly pumpkin face. You can use flowers for eyes, a carrot for a nose and cabbage for hair. Be creative and let me know if you have any other neat ideas for pumpkin decor in your home this fall!
