No proper celebration of the pumpkin would be complete without a glance at the many beautiful ways pumpkins are used to decorate during the harvest season. I rounded up a few of my favorites to share. . .
Can you believe this beautiful shot? It makes me want to be a farmer… can I please live there? You can find the image here.
And while we’re at it, I’d like this front porch:
The pumpkins, planters, flowers, leaves and brick are all so similar in color that the overall composition of this porch is almost a two-tone effect. I love the contrast of the warm oranges against the stark white. Image from Martha Stewart via Holidash.
While we’re outside, we might as well go for it. For years I’ve been dreaming of having a pumpkin carnival in my yard. I’d be thrilled if it looked something like this.
Simple and classic. I love that picture frame! (Image found here.)
I love the whimsy in this decorated pumpkin (above). What a fun creative experience it would be to try something like it.
A white pumpkin sitting atop silver brings this fall squash to a new level of sophistication and beauty. It would be fun to create a table setting based on this lovely centerpiece (image here).
And finally, who would like to join me for lunch right here?
I’ve been in love with Heather Bullard’s photography for a while now. Hers was one of the first blogs I ever read. For more pretty shots, read her entire post on the arrival of autumn and enjoy the rest of her site as well.
Two of these images call to my heart. Any guesses which? Which is your favorite?
