{loving} pumpkins


After posting about my love of the ethereal nature of the lumina pumpkin, I realized  that I had to give the traditional orange pumpkin some love too! I seriously need a bigger house to decorate for Fall and Halloween, I just can’t get enough.

If I didn’t regularly use my fireplace, I would be all over this like a crow to corn!

Instead of traditional carving, try punching holes with a nail for a punch tin look. Seriously beautiful when lit!

Loving these pictures that expand over several pumpkins!

Tuck carved jack-o-lanterns into hurricane glasses on a bed of candy. Can I say how much I love this?!

So, who’s heading to the pumpkin patch this week?

{loving} decorating with lumina pumpkins


I love a traditional orange pumpkin, the beautiful orange orbs adorn my house inside and out every year. But when I want a spooky, ethereal look to my decor I go for the lumina. Gorgeous white, sometimes with a soft tinge of blue-grey, beautiful in that mystical moonlight kind of way.

There are so many ways you can decorate with the beautiful white lumina. Here are a handful of my favorites from around the web. 

A little black paint is all it takes to create a spooky tableau.

Add a little Jack to your halloween decor!

A simple nod to a well-known Halloween story sets the mood for the evening.

I love the simplicity of leaving them as-is and just placing them around the house.

Add some black grasses and bittersweet to create a lovely centerpiece like the ones I made last year for a fall wedding.

Are you going to get crafty and decorate with lumina pumpkins this year?
