Growing up, I used to enjoying watching my mom carve pumpkins right before Halloween. She used to do a great job at it too.
Now as an adult, I don't care for Halloween (at least not the spooky side of it) but I still enjoy beautifully decorated pumpkins, gourds and other seasonal fruits. Here are a few that I gathered from Country Living for inspiration. Not sure which ones I will try, they are all so interesting!
I really like this one below, I think it's so pretty! The sweater too...
What about this lovely lantern design?
Here's a view from the top of another favorite of mine. Is it a pumpkin or a flower? Looks like it's both!
Check out the wallpaper - another case of designs that blend in.
My mom used to decorate with candles. Maybe that's why I think this one is so special. :)
How high can you go?! The colors, the shapes, the sizes, doesn't this pretty tower have it all?
Have you or will you decorate this fall? I'd love to hear how you use pumpkins, gourds or other fruits in your decorations.
May your day be joyful and full of sweet blessings!
