Time for Pumpkins

 


Hello everyone, I hope your week has
gotten off to a great start!

Today we are talking pumpkins.

What do you do with them?


 

I love to decorate with them. Mr. Ken
and I made a quick stop at this
pumpkin stand two Saturdays ago.


 

I really like the white ones.
I got one and turned it into
a Boo pumpkin by adding
features.

Here are some other ideas
when using pumpkins:

1. Carving several for your porch.
2. Make pies, cake or bread.
3. Clean the seeds and roast them.
Yum!
4. Turn a cleaned out pumpkin into
a soup tureen.
5. Roast or grill pumpkin.
6. Turn a cleaned out pumpkin into
a centerpiece with flowers tucked
inside.
7. Of course, decorating with them
is fun. I put mine on my deck and
front porch. If you don't carve yours
most will last till Thanksgiving.
The small ones are great on tables
and mantels.
Some go a step further with theirs
and they decorate them:
Melted crayons dipped down the
sides.
Some paint theirs.
Mod podge with pretty paper napkins.
There are endless ideas for changing
a typical pumpkin into something
different.



Those crazy kids amid A LOT
of pumpkins. Mr. Ken asked
the gal at the stand how many
pumpkins they had and she told
him that they unloaded around
2,000 pumpkins!
As usual we had a great time
wandering through the pumpkins
and choosing the "right" ones for
our house. We have one more
pumpkin trip to make because
I feel that one can NEVER have
enough pumpkins!


See you Wednesday!

  1. What a fun outing! I haven't picked up pumpkins yet so I need to get on it. We don't carve them but use them to decorate and add color to the porch and end of the driveway with the mums.

  3. I love pumpkins. I make pumpkin smoothies and though they're not as good as Starbuck's they are tasty and a lot less expensive. Happy autumn!

  5. One year I tied rafia on the stems and then lightly sprayed the top of the pumpkin with gold spray paint. They looked so pretty in the sunlight. Hmmm. I may have to do this again.
