“I’d say the first thing you need is … a pumpkin.” —Cinderella

Oh I agree with you Cinderella! Fall is in the air and I definitely need a pumpkin…well lots of pumpkins! I love decorating with pumpkin decor at this time of year due to the variety of colors, sizes and character available. They always make our home feel warm and cheery!

I promise I will not bombard you with lots of notifications. In fact, I usually just do one round up email a week to share all the latest things on the blog.

I have lots of ideas to share, but just before I get going with that I want to let you know this post is part of a blog hop hosted by the lovely Kristy of At Home with Kristy. If you are coming over from Nicolle’s blog, Our Tiny Nest, welcome! Her ideas of how to decorate your front porch without mums is fantastic!

So let’s get started. I have broken down the types of pumpkins and how you can decorate with each.

Twig Pumpkins

Twig pumpkin decor is such a favorite of mine. Have you ever grown pumpkins? I have for many years and twigs pumpkins always kind of remind of the tendrils that grow off of the pumpkin vines as they stretch out.

The varying browns of the twigs and being a natural element, are perfect to bring the beautiful outdoors inside! They look great with a mix of elements such as wood, metal and fabrics and let’s face it, they are just so cute!!!

Velvet Pumpkins

I cannot lie, velvet pumpkins have really caught my eye and stolen my heart.

Look how cute these velvet pumpkins look with this ornamental cabbage dyed blue! It is so much fun to add a new unexpected color to the fall repertoire.

Here they are again with bright and cheery sunflowers.

So the key is – don’t be hemmed in to the typical and traditional autumn colors. Pick what you love and let your creativity flow!

Sweater Pumpkins

Sweater pumpkins are fairly new to fall decor. Their soft texture and coziness make them a perfect addition to your home. Once you have one, you will be searching for others.

Also, take a look through your closet and try to find some old sweaters that you don’t wear anymore and try your hand at making a few. They are actually very easy to make.

Dollar Store Pumpkins

Would you believe these topiaries below were made from inexpensive orange, single pumpkins from the dollar store? Well they were and if you are interested, here is a link that will take you through all the steps so you can make your own.

Real Pumpkins

Pumpkins are so easy to grow and if you haven’t ever tried you really should. Just make sure they are in a sunny spot and you water them lots.

Blue pumpkins, pink pumpkins, white pumpkins…there are so many choices now which makes it even more fun to incorporate real pumpkins into your home decor.

Just add a few pumpkins and a tin with flowers and you have an instant focal point on your island.

Scatter a few down the middle of your table with a few tea lights, sunflowers and candlesticks on a burlap runner and you have an easy fall tablescape.

If you are still able to dine outside, add some mums and rusty metal pieces to a basket of pumpkins and you have a lovely photo op to carry the theme down from the table.

Don’t forget about outdoor sheds, gardens or greenhouses. They can be one of the most fun areas to decorate and pumpkins fit in naturally.

Lastly, entrances are a perfect spot to lay out all your pumpkin treasures to greet your guests.

Candles and twinkle lights add sparkle for the evening.

A warm throw and pillow will be the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the crisp autumn evenings. Think about adding a large neutral rug under a doormat for added texture.

Adding in other garden elements like an armillary sphere, wire urn and lanterns will add interest while still keeping the pumpkins as the main feature.
