Fall décor – quick ways to decorate with pumpkins (no carving)

With Halloween just around the corner, you’re probably looking for quick decorating ideas (like I am) that don’t require much time or money but still deliver lots of “wow” factor. I’ve done some digging into finding quick décor ideas for my own house that I hope will also inspire you to decorate yours. Here’s a roundup of my favourite ideas for decorating with pumpkins.

What I love the most about all of these ideas is that don’t require any special skills or tools to execute and can be done in record time. No need to carve the pumpkins, it’s all about keeping the decorating as simple as possible: 1. Group different shapes and colours of pumpkins and gourds to add interest to a tabletop. 2. Stack them up from the largest to the smallest to add height and Halloween flair to a tablescape. 3. Place a large orange pumpkin on a black hutch to create instant Halloween atmosphere . 4. Fill glass vases with mini pumpkins, alternating colours.  5. Welcome guests with pumpkins by the front door (I will use a sharpie to write on the pumpkins versus paint, it’s faster).

If orange pumpkins clash with your décor or if you’re looking for a soothing Halloween look for your house, choose all-white pumpkins.  White pumpkins can look classy and chic or vintage depending on what you pair them with.

Create a fall nature inspired centrepiece for your dining table with white pumpkins, votive candles, drift wood, antlers and dried flowers. This tone-on-tone color palette looks gorgeous and stylish with any dinnerware used.

I went pumpkin shopping this weekend to enjoy them not only for Halloween but for a few weeks before as part of a fall decorating look.
