As Halloween approaches and pumpkins pop up everywhere, we offer you a new and elevated way present a traditional fall arrangement.
When we use real pumpkins to decorate our front stoop or tablescape, they get moldy quickly and don’t typically last very long. Consider spray painting a plastic or PVC pumpkin in various metallic shades and using them as containers for a beautiful live plant or a unique silk arrangement.
The best part is that if you fall in love with your arrangement, you can keep it around
for Thanksgiving décor.
