I love transitioning into fall. Even if the weather isn’t cooperating fully—just seeing mums and pumpkins in front of Kroger makes me happy!
I am always so excited to decorate my home and the shop for fall, although, I believe that I tend to decorate with a fall theme year ‘round. It incorporates the colors and accents I love, so why wouldn’t I use them all of the time?
At the house, I’m holding back a little. I’ve put away the “summer” banner, the cobalt hurricanes and the shell encrusted orbs. The candles are changing from ivory to brown and the candle sticks from glass to well- patinaed (apparently you
can’t shouldn’t past-tense “patina”) brass.
But at the shop we have added the Halloween inventory and a plethora of pumpkins—plush and otherwise! There are oat standards and a variety of other decorative accents you can use to make changes of your own. I have taken a few pictures and hope you will come back to check-out our ideas. For now, though, I thought I’d share some of our Plush Pumpkins.
Folks often ask how they should display their Plush Pumpkins, so I thought a few pictures might help.
You don’t have to have a baker’s dozen for your display.
A grouping of three pumpkins is my favorite display, but if you only want one—they can make a solitary statement, as well (note the pumpkin atop the scale). Also, just because they’re velvet, doesn’t mean they can’t be displayed with your favorite rusty junk. In fact, the juxtaposition makes a wonderful eye-catching display.
Of course, they are right at home surrounded by glitz and gold, as well.
So, don’t let the issue of “how will I display mine” keep you from taking a few home. Remember, we are always available to help you brainstorm a few ideas for your own arrangement.
Hope to see you in our Plush Pumpkin patch soon!
Thanks for your indulgence,
