I was having fun on Better Homes and Gardens, looking at all the great ways they turned pumpkins and gourds into fantastic centerpieces, or simply decorating with them in unique ways. This front porch picture is amazing! I love, love LOVE the red door and how the wreath on the door looks against it. Look at the combination of flowers and pumpkins lining the steps~ beautiful! :)
This one captured my eye instantly! How perfectly fall! This is one I am going to have to try~ I have the pumpkin, have the mums, just need time! :)
This one is so sweet, and I love the colors of pink and green with a touch of red!
I love the way they used white in these last two fall arrangements. Especially wonderful for decorating cottages with a summery feel to them. Sometimes the darker colors of fall don't fit in as well, but these white pumpkins and white candles would! This is a problem I have when decorating for fall~ the colors don't always quite work, but mixing them with white helps a lot!
Wouldn't this be beautiful as a table centerpiece for Thanksgiving dinner? It is fall, and yet it says the holidays are coming soon!
Again, I just love the lighter colors, and don't those pale hues just pop against the darker green?
If you really want to go to town with pumpkins and gourds, than this look may be just the thing! This porch is amazing! :) I love the ceramic planter filled with flowers and kale, with the pumpkins beside it!
Hopefully this has inspired you as much as it did me! I also hope your weekend is going wonderful so far! :)
