Pumpkins and Gourds help in the fall decor

As I mentioned we stopped by an area while visiting the Amish farmers who sell products to the public just like in the old days. At one place in particular there was a set of young brothers that were minding a pumpkin field they were such good farm hands and they were put in charge of selling and taking the money for the pumpkins. I had a great time and so did my grand-children picking out pumpkins and gourds that we would use to decorate our house and yard. It surprised me that there were so many different varieties and colors. My husband even commented I wonder how there are so many different shapes and colors. We ended up with a great variety and plan to cut jack o lanterns, paint a few pumpkins, roast some pumpkin seeds and have fun decorating as well. One of the best ways to decorate for fall for me is to use what is in nature. The dried twigs, pumpkins, gourds, as well as mums and other fall flowers. The pumpkins and gourds will carry through both the months of October and November as they will last quite a while if their skin is not cut.
The smaller pumpkins and gourds and as I said there was a great variety of these are perfect for setting about inside as well, to use as place settings or to showcase in baskets or jars. There are a number of ways to make them work with the theme you may all ready have with the variety of colors and size available you may add twigs, berries or other items in with them to keep with the theme of your house as well as offer  a bit of fall décor as well.
Happy Harvest Season to you I hope you have fun in decorating
