It’s fall and that means PUMPKINS! Do you decorate with them? I love to use them as part of my seasonal decor. Pumpkins come in so many shapes, sizes and now materials that they are perfect for creating stylish, autumn decor! Don’t just plunk a single pumpkin down and call it done. Let’s make something fabulous… and easy! Here are 5 BEAUTIFUL way to style Pumpkins…
I’m using these gorgeous velvet pumpkins with real pumpkins stems made by Chris Ann from LoveFeast Shop. But any pumpkin real or faux can be styled using these tips too!
I know… isn’t this little pumpkin divine? Sigh!
1. PUT A PUMPKIN IN A PRETTY FOOTED BOWL OR TROPHY
I love the look of elevating one perfect pumpkin in a footed bowl or trophy. It makes the pumpkin look so much more special! Don’t forget to add a little “fluff” around the base of the pumpkin. I bet this will become one of your very favorite pumpkin vignettes this year! If you don’t have hydrangeas use a small wreath of boxwood or clumps of berries or fall leaves!
It’s important when you elevate decor to add something to the base of the arrangement too. It will make your creation look “finished”. Give it a try and see for yourself. You will love the seasonal things you style so much more if there is an element or two from your arrangement around it’s base!
Don’t you love love love the folds in the velvet. It looks like the lines of real pumpkin… only more lush!
I used PeeGee hydrangeas that have now aged to a very pretty lime green and two more velvet pumpkins. They are part of a 6 piece velvet pumpkin collection called “Sorbet”.
2. PUT PUMPKINS IN A GREAT CONTAINER LIKE A DOUGH BOWL!
Grouping pumpkins together with some supporting fall fluff is a much bigger visual WOW than a lonely pumpkin all by itself! The best and easiest way to do this is to put them in a great bowl or platter or tray or something that gives them boundaries!
Today I rounded up my gorgeous velvet pumpkins and put them in a rustic dough bowl. I love the juxtaposition of the refined pumpkins and the rustic wooden bowl and straw!
Look at this tiny purple pumpkin perched on top of the larger citron green one! L-O-V-E!
3. PUT SMALL PUMPKINS ON CANDLESTICKS
Pull out some of your candlesticks and prop a pumpkin on them. Remember to use candlesticks of varying heights. Amazing, I know! And so so easy!
Make a little grouping of them. They will look great going down the center of a table or grouped together on a coffee table. Just remember, like the tips above, make sure to put some embellishments at the base of the grouping too!
Each velvet pumpkin has a real stem. And each pumpkin is as individual as the real ones… only the the LoveFeast pumpkins come in the most scrumptious colors!
4. PUT PUMPKINS ON A PEDESTAL CAKE PLATE ALONG WITH LOTS OF FALL ELEMENTS
Go all out and create a riot of color and autumnal details. This arrangement begs to be the center of attention… and is! Putting pumpkins on a flat surface shows off the whole arrangement from top to bottom. Add lots of leaves to the base of the pedestal and fill in the cracks and crevices between the pumpkins with seed pods, leaves, acorn, feathers, pinecones, moss or whatever brings a seasonal look to the arrangement!
These pretty velvet pumpkins stay put. They don’t slide around and stack wonderfully!
If you are using real pumpkins in an arrangement like this put a little sticky putty, like 3M Mounting Putty, on your pumpkins to make they stay in place. When your arrangement is done, you can remove the sticky putty and save it for your next project.
5. PUT A LITTLE PUMPKIN IN A NEST
This is my favorite way to tuck a little fall decor on a night stand or on a ledge or in small places in my home. They are such a sweet little fall surprise! The preciousness factor is off the charts for this pumpkin decoration!
This bitty purple pumpkin steals my heart! I can think of dozens of way to decorate with it! Keep your eye out for it in my fall decor this year!
