Halloween is just around the corner and is a fabulous excuse to redecorate, if only for a few days! If you haven't noticed already, this years halloween decorations have already lined the supermarket shelves with lots of vampire fangs and orange candles on offer. For me, the main attraction on halloween is the pumpkin. I have many memories of carving pumpkins on my mothers kitchen floor with my sisters. I used to spend ages thinking about what I was going to carve and create. So here are some chic ideas to give your pumpkins an elegant touch.
This is a great idea for any Halloween Party! Simply carve your pumpkin and fill it with ice, simple!
Mini Pumpkins make lovely little place markers. Paint them to go with your colour scheme to make your table look more complete.
I love this idea of painting them white, its easy, simple and looks great! It makes your pumpkins more neutral and allows them to sit perfectly in any decoration colour scheme. The contrasting Autumnal berries in this picture are fabulous too!
If you don't have time to carve Pumpkins this year, it's ok not everyone has the time, but try this trick instead. Buy some lace or netting and wrap your pumpkins up in it and tie with ribbons! It creates a great decoration and looks like you've spent lots of time on it too!
If you do want to give carving a go, why not try a simple pattern. Its less time consuming but still looks amazing and elegant, perfect for any party!
