It’s that time of year again when pumpkins are appearing everywhere.

Nowww I ‘m well aware that in many areas of our country, Halloween is pretty much DOA- due to this ongoing Pandemic & social distancing. But, that certainly doesn’t mean that we can’t add a some  PUMPKIN PANACHE  to your PORCH.

Pumpkins are so affordable and available at every grocery, craft store, farmers market and roadside stand.  Not to mention the bevy of decorating options you can use to primp your pumpkin to perfection.

Since we may just have a little extra time on our hands because in most cases you won’t be scrambling to put a costume together. perhaps take that creative mojo and put it into making your pumpkin selections extra pretty this year. Goodness knows we could all use a little does of HAPPY and Pumpkins are one of those Decor items that bring joy! Below are a few pumpkin pairings that  I hope will inspire you to “pretty up” your pumpkins for Fall. Happy decorating!

Halloween Pumpkin Prep…

FUN FACT….

Halloween is the second most celebrated holiday of the entire year! Christmas still holds the number one spot but seriously (????) Halloween has out -spotted Thanksgiving in the scheme of holiday celebrations!?  THAT is making quite a statement.

Halloween’s style quota  has exploded in terms of  Halloween costumes available for ADULTS, massive and might I add outlandish Halloween parties, and indoor and outdoor decor.

And….speaking of holiday decor..did you get the memo that carving pumpkins  is no more. At the very least there seems to be a major push to paint your pumpkins and if you have the artistic skills of Picasso-well all the better. I could not believe my eyes when I came upon this assortment of pumpkins that would be perfect for porch display.

If you’re looking to put down your pumpkin carving knife and paint a fantastical design this Halloween, here are a few  painted pumpkin options that I hope  will inspire.
