Decorating Pumpkins Without Carving
Picture by Joy – stop by her Flickr page!
Today I wanted to share some more ideas for using pumpkins to decorate your home & garden without having to carve them.
There are so many ways that you could choose to decorate your home for the season. For some reason, when it comes to fall decorating, many people think about the “dreaded” carving day, when they will have to display their talents (or possible lack thereof) for the whole neighborhood to see. Thankfully, there are many beautiful options available to you, where you will never even have to take out that knife 😉
Look at the beautiful displays that some of my creative friends have put together!
From (Joy), the same gal who shared the above picture. I love how her friend has used so many different fall items such as; pumpkins, guards, bittersweet vine, colorful leaves and sunflowers, to fill this vintage baby carriage. This display is so “storybook dreamy”!
By pulling together some of your favorite bits of Autumn, you can make your home & garden the talk of the town! The best part? Most of these items can be found free by using things from your garden, and your decorating closet.
Here are some items that you could add to your fall display
A simple scattering of pumpkins & goards here and there makes everything feel so festive!
The newer white pumpkins that are showing up at farm stands around the countryside are simply stunning! They are great for decorating with, because the eggshell color goes with just about anything… even this cute little doggie 😉
How about a pretty ribbon around the stem of the pumpkin to make is even more dazzling!
And… I think these girls are enjoying the newer white pumpkins as much as I am 😉

What a lovely blog entry:)
The kitty and chickens are soo adorable too!
Thanks Kayellen! I just love chickens!
You’ve got some awesome ideas! I love Indian Corn. Have you heard of Strawberry Indian Corn? It’s very cute raspberry colored chubby corn. I also love the photo of the Terrier. My dog matches my home’s color scheme too!
Thanks! I really love Indian corn… and recently found another great way to decorate with it – other than just hanging it up (which is also very lovely 🙂 I’m going to share it here with everyone very soon.
You did a fantastic job! Everything is so beautiful. I especially love those white pumpkins. Never saw them before.
All lovely ideas for seasonal decorating. And the chickens are just too cute.
I love that you not only showed some BEAUTIFUL, inspiring pictures, but you also listed some elements to include. A lot of times when we try to incorporate an idea in our own homes it just doesn’t quite work. Usually because we remember the big elements but forgot the little things that pull it all together.
What wonderful ideas! I love to decorate and your blog is inspiring me to do MORE! I would like to link your blog to mine! Hope that’s OK!
This is the place to come when looking for decorating ideas. These pumpkins are all so beautiful!
Oh Pearl, I just wanted to jump in, your home is so inviting. What wonderful ideas, thanks so much.
I have a question, I keep looking at the cat in your wonderful pics & cat’s & cottages go hand & hand BUT…. I’m so afraid to get one because I have so many little decorations and I dont want the cat to climb on everything & destroy them. Does that happen to you?? My sister has a cat & it climbs everywhere & on everything. Any advice? Thanks,
