The Great Pumpkin

I think it’s safe to call pumpkin the official vegetable representative of Fall.  Everywhere you turn there it is…pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin candles, and….well…just plain pumpkins are showing up everywhere you look.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not about to complain about the pumpkin infestation- I’m actually a big fan of this time of year for this very reason.  In terms of decorating, I think the pumpkin is an altogether misunderstood veggie.  It doesn’t have to be cheesy or scary or just part of an afterschool activity you do with your kids…decorating with pumpkins can actually be incredibly lovely.  Here are a few ideas to run with- for free carving stencils (that are simpler and easier to execute than the designs below) click here.
