I love Fall. It’s partly because of the weather, but also because of the beautiful colors – every tree reaches this magical peak of color and beauty and I just can’t get enough of it. Fall is also wonderful because of the amazing variety of pumpkins and gourds available. They’re so easy to decorate with and they last much longer than flowers. Just pick an interesting mix – don’t shy away from the funky shapes or warty ones, either!
Above are an amazing variety I spotted at a local farm. Below, a little arrangement I threw together:
$2 worth of gourds from the grocery store and some faux fall leaves in a vintage midcentury pedestal bowl make a great simple centerpiece. Fall is a great time to keep it clean and uncomplicated and let nature be the star. But of course everything looks better on a pedestal!
