I don’t know about you but I don’t have a lot of fall décor stored away in bins. I have one small bin, and half of the stuff in the bin, I do not even like anymore. So really just a few faux pumpkins is all I have to work with. I usually pick up fresh pumpkins and gourds, fill a bowl and set one here or there, add something to the front door, pile up some mums and bails of straw, done. We made our trip to Martins, a lovely local garden shop, and I picked up 6 pumpkins, total. Three large ones-$5 each, and 3-small ones $2 each, total $21.The 2 orange-ish/pink ones came with warts and al,l and I adore that about them. I challenged myself to see how many different ways I could display these 6 pumpkins. Of course first I filled the dough box, as usual. This box always goes from pumpkins to hydrangeas or the other way around, depending on when I get my pumpkins. Here in PA its best to cut your Hydrangeas around September 15th.
An oversized tray.
How about an urn.
Here I used a candle holder.
I swapped out the faux pumpkin for this real one on the compote/pedestal.
I thought under this cloche was pretty.

As you can see there are endless ways to display pumpkins, so for a very small investment you can do a lot of different things, and then you don’t have so much to pack away. Have a wonderful Fall Season.
