Pumpkin Picking

Halloween is right around the corner, so now is the appropriate time for pumpkin picking! Besides picking out the perfect gourd, a trip to the pumpkin patch can provide a number of amusements! for added autumn fun, try these ideas.

  • Selecting a pumpkin in an usual color, such as white 
  • Adopt "baby" pumpkins and display them in your home or room 
  • Carve dainty lace or merry-go-round patterns as opposed to a ghoulish face
  • Make a festive fairy house with twigs, moss and stones
  • Skip the knives altogether and outfit your pumpkin with lace or glitter
  • Wear your very best Halloween or autumn themed outfit to the patch for an impromptu photo-shoot  
  • Use the photos to send old fashion-styled greeting cards
  • Experiment with different recipes using the fruit and seeds of your carved pumpkin
  • See if your patch has a traditional corn maize and give it a try
  • Martha Stuart's Halloween magazine is always full of classy decorating ideas 
 Happy Haunting!

P.S. Here is a sneak peak of my costume!
