Glam Out with Gourds

Decorating your Handler Home with pumpkins and gourds is a wonderful way to celebrate the fall season and add a festive touch to both the interior and exterior of your home. Here are some creative ideas for incorporating these autumn favorites into your decor.

Pumpkin Centerpieces

Pumpkins can make great table centerpieces. Place various sizes and colors of pumpkins and gourds in a decorative bowl or tray for a stunning and easy-to-create centerpiece.

Pumpkin Vases

A hollowed-out pumpkin also has several decorative possibilities, such as a vase! Try making one for yourself by hollowing out a medium-sized pumpkin, then insert a glass or plastic container, and use it as a vase for fresh or artificial fall flowers and foliage.

Pumpkin Candle Holders

Another way you can use a hollowed-out pumpkin is by turning them into fall candle holders. Simply carve out small pumpkins and gourds to create these unique candle holders. Place tea lights or small candles inside to cast a warm, cozy glow.

Pumpkin Garland

Looking for a way to dress up your fireplace mantle this season? You can’t go wrong with a seasonal garland. Make a charming pumpkin garland by stringing together miniature pumpkins and gourds. Hang it over a fireplace, doorway, or along a stair railing.

Pumpkin Table Settings

Do you enjoy hosting? Make the little things extra special by creating pumpkin table settings for your autumn gatherings. Place small pumpkins or gourds at each place setting as name card holders or individual party favors. It’s as simple as that.

Pumpkin Staircase

Ready to dress up your front door? One easy way to do this is by lining your front steps or staircase with pumpkins and gourds of varying sizes. Add a few potted mums or other fall plants for extra color. Or, better yet, use large hollowed out pumpkins as the planters that hold your mums this season.

Pumpkin Door Decor

And lastly, you can make your front door all the more inviting with gourds. Either hang a pumpkin wreath or a cluster of gourds on your front door for a warm and inviting entryway.

By incorporating pumpkins and gourds into your fall decor, you can create a cozy and festive atmosphere both inside and outside your home. These versatile decorations are not only visually appealing but also capture the essence of the season. Happy Fall from the Handler Homes team!
