Pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins! Oh...and a GIVEAWAY, too!

Posted on November 22, 2013 by 1 | 15 Comments

I know that we have been jumping the gun over here when it comes to Christmas. We just can’t help that we’re full of the Christmas spirit!!! But, we do realize that Thanksgiving is less than a week away! Fall really is my favorite time of year…pumpkins, cool weather, football, pumpkin spice lattes, the list goes on and on. In my house September means football so the pumpkins don’t make their debut until October 1st. I don’t decorate specifically for Halloween or Thanksgiving. I put all sorts of pumpkins out and that’s where they stay from the beginning of October until the day after Thanksgiving. I hope y’all haven’t thrown your pumpkins away yet because this post is all about decorating with pumpkins! Below are some pictures showing how we have decorated with pumpkins in our own homes and then some of our favorite ways to incorporate them into yours! [caption id="attachment_8020" align="aligncenter" width="620"]pumpkins These beauties are from the Curb Market downtown. Every year I decorate the fireplace with pumpkins of different shapes, colors and sizes. That beautiful lantern was a wedding gift and I filled it with small pumpkins to add a special touch.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_8023" align="alignnone" width="620"]photo Once again the Curb Market helped us out with these gorgeous heirloom pumpkins that we used in PARISH. They were then taken to Ashley's house to add a whimsical touch to Cates' Cinderella themed birthday party![/caption] Below are our favorite ways to decorate with pumpkins. We hope they inspire you to add some Fall fun to your home for this Thanksgiving holiday!

What the perfect touch for a Thanksgiving centerpiece.[/caption]

This centerpiece can be found on the Nest blog.

 

Below are some pictures from one of my absolute favorite bloggers, Jenny Hobick.  Her blog, "Everyday Occasions" inspires me every time I read it and when I refer to Jenny my husband knows exactly who I am talking about :) She has a "Fall Guide" tab at the top of her blog making it super easy to choose between décor, recipes and entertaining.

I love these pillows!!

My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is my grandmother’s congealed salad. NO ONE ever eats it (it even looks gross), but she was adamant that it be in the lunch spread every year. Even though she has passed, we still make it every year….I might even put a little on my plate just for her.

I make my grandmother’s sweet potato casserole every year. Her secret ingredient is Chardonnay!

We all go as a family to Rosemary beach for Thanks giving…we run the 30a 10k and 1mile fun run. This will also be our 3rd year of sorting all our clothes and giving to goodwill and the Salvation Army.

My favorite tradition is getting together with all my family since it’s the only holiday that we all get to spend together.

Great pillows! All of our Thanksgiving traditions are special, but my favorite is the FOOD! For the past few years, I have been in charge of making dessert – not a bad job to have…

My favorite tradition is playing boardgames by the fireplace & laughing like wild hyenas, following the big scrumptious meal!

My favorite tradition is traveling! Sounds crazy, but it is always fun and nothing beat the tradition of heading “home”!

I love spending time with family that I don’t get to see often, and of course, all the delicious food.
