I, however, fell in love with the colors.
Rather than screaming orange (ok, in addition to, but no screaming orange pumpkins are for me!) I came home with these beauties:
These colors really do not photograph well. The orange is actually a pale, pale, pale pastel orange, nearly beige with just a tint of orange. The green is a very pale green-blue, almost a seafoam color.
As you can see, I just went for a simple thumb tack monogram on the big one. I was going to do something with stencils and paint, but I saw this online and it really caught my eye. As a bonus it only took about 5 minutes to do.
Right now these are sitting by the door, but may get moved to the porch. The green pumpkin may turn into Frankenstein's head- not sure yet! We also have our family pumpkin carving contest coming up, and I need to show off all of the Halloween decor around the property! We've been having a lot of fun!
