Pumpkins are not just a culinary delight. With them, many houses and gardens are decorated in autumn, because they are particularly decorative and varied in their shapes and colors. In October, before the Halloween party, they keep sparking a true decoration fever. At every front door, at every window, the orange pumpkins light up and we all agree on the autumn.
The shades of green and the light cream colors of some pumpkin varieties give the usually autumnal red orange theme a whole new twist. Combined with white or pastel-colored containers and home accessories, elegant arrangements are created in no time at all, which also go well with elegant home styles and will appeal to you if orange is not your favorite color.
Botanically, pumpkins are by the way among the berry fruits, which seems almost ridiculous given the size and weight of over 20 kilograms of some pumpkins, but is still true. From them you can conjure up all sorts of delicious soups and dishes that are very healthy and even give reason for a little celebration: for example, to try out together with friends and family new imaginative decoration ideas for Halloween.
In the design with pumpkins you can draw from the full. A wicker basket provides enough space for all sizes and shapes. If you paint it white, the autumnal colors will be more subtle. If you want to hollow out the pumpkins for pumpkin lanterns and carve them for Halloween, you could cut them much easier and more precisely with metal cutters instead of a knife. It looks wonderful, but if you like it more romantic, you could of course use the heart molds for cutting out. Such pumpkin lanterns are perfect for any romantic dinner.
In addition, pumpkins offer a natural alternative to flower vases. You can use a knife to drill a small opening into the pumpkins, fill them with some water and arrange individual flowers in them. This creates a beautiful table decoration or a nice souvenir with ease.
As you've already read, pumpkins are not only delicious and healthy, but also beautiful as decoration and imaginative, because they can be fantastically combined with other natural materials such as leaves, berries or twigs. That's why we've collected some beautiful pictures for you to inspire you to decorate your home with the myriad of colors and idiosyncratic shapes of pumpkins. Have lots of fun with it!
