Pumpkins at SummerWinds Nursery
We have a great selection of pumpkins and gourds to choose from this fall.
Not sure how to incorporate pumpkins and gourds into your home decor? We have some suggestions that might help get your creative pumpkin juices pumping...
Here are five design tips for decorating your home with pumpkins this fall:
- Mix Sizes and Varieties: Incorporate a variety of pumpkin sizes and types to create visual interest. Combine large, medium, and small pumpkins as well as different varieties like orange, white, or heirloom pumpkins. This diversity adds depth and texture to your decor.
- Use Different Display Containers: Instead of just placing pumpkins on your porch or table, consider using various containers like wooden crates, baskets, or metal buckets to create unique displays. This adds a rustic and charming touch to your decor.
- Add Natural Elements: Combine pumpkins with other natural elements like fall foliage, pinecones, acorns, or cornstalks. These elements complement pumpkins and enhance the overall fall aesthetic.
- Carve or Paint Pumpkins: Get creative with your pumpkins by either carving intricate designs or painting them with patterns, monograms, or autumn-themed motifs. These customized pumpkins can become eye-catching focal points in your decor.
- Create a Welcoming Entryway: Decorate your front porch or entryway with pumpkins and seasonal decor to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Use pumpkins to frame your door, place them on your steps, and add cozy lanterns or candles to complete the look.
