Saying Goodbye to the Last Pumpkins of Autumn

It's fun to gather the bright colors of Autumn together to celebrate the season. And nothing says Fall like the bright orange of a beautiful pumpkin.  This year we were gifted several large pumpkins and gourds to make my daughter's baby shower and later our side porch, especially inviting and homey.

I added a few springs of bittersweet to the stacks of pumpkins, the old milk can and bench that sit side by side year round to add a delicate touch.

The tiny little pumpkins sitting on my mantle were decorated in a sort of henna fashion for the shower and mixed with gourds on each table.  If I could dry them for future use, I would.
