I love Halloween! Not just because of my birthday (which is a major plus), or the free candy (also a plus), or being able to dress up and be whatever you want to be. I love fall, and Halloween decorations, and pumpkins! Recently, I’ve been looking at ideas for Halloween decorations for a house I don’t own, for parties that aren’t going to happen any time soon, and I’ve fallen in love with some pumpkins.
I think these are from Martha Stewart and Midwest Living, or something like that. I really love the painted pumpkin tree on the book shelf. It screams “fall” to me, and you can still use them to make tasty, tasty things with later.
Clearly, I’m a big fan of white pumpkins, and I really love the spider web one. The carved twigs on the bottom left are adorable, and make me smile whenever I look at them, and the bottom right, which is actually images decoupaged onto a pumpkin, made me fall in love. It’s creepy and pumpkiny all at the same time!
I actually went overboard at the pumpkin patch this year and bought two huge pumpkins. I only carved one, and the other one sat there in its 20 lb glory, mocking me, laughing at me because I live in an apartment and can’t even display jack-o-lanterns outside. I gave it to my 2 year old nephew today because he’s an awesome pumpkin carver.
