{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?

{NEW TO SHOP} happy halloween!


Are you hosting a Halloween party  this year? Get excited because I have just launched my latest DIY Printable Party collection for Halloween!

I have been so eager to share this classic black, orange and white collection with you! If you want to host a Halloween party in traditional colours with a whole lot of sweetness, this may be the collection for you. A little spooky with a frightful BOO, but mostly full of sweetness with plenty of candy corn and a cutie patootie ghost wearing a bow on her head and I am totally in love with her!

The Happy Halloween collection has everything you need to craft a sweet and spooktacular party! Invitations with a DIY crafty flair, 3 sheets of party circles, 2 sheets of bottle wrappers, tent cards, favor tags, 3 party signs, ghost cut outs, mini chocolate bar wrappers, a Happy Halloween banner, and 10 sheets of coordinating decorative papers so you can create your favorite paper decorations in coordinating patterns. I used the paper to cover the tops of some loot bags, line platters and decorate lollipop stands.

We all know I love gumballs! So I had to make a giant candy corn out of gumballs and an icing bag. I just couldn’t resist.

And because I love a simple party DIY, you can decorate your invitations with a party circle of your choice! Simply, print and punch out your favorite party circles and attach at the top of your invite (guide circle provided on the invites). Candy corn and jack-o-lanterns for the boys and cutie patootie girlie ghost for the girls!

Seriously, I love her!

The Happy Halloween Collection is now available in my Etsy shop!

And because I’m so excited to finally be able to share this with you, I am launching the collection with a 50% OFF sale!

Get the collection for $10.00 until Oct 5, 2011!
