We grew three whole pumpkins on our own this year, and one of them got pretty ginormous! But I still couldn’t resist buying those cute little mini-pumpkins at the store. I had some kind of half-formed plan to make a creative/funny scene using the large and small pumpkins (I was going to let Pinterest finish forming said plan), but I never got to it. I made costumes instead. So I set them out, kind of like in the picture (well, exactly like that, it’s a picture after all).
Here we are in November, and those little pumpkins look just as adorable. They’ll last for some time yet, so I wanted to use them to Autumn up the house a little bit. The kids were running around outside in gleeful circles as the Fall winds were blowing beautiful leaves all over the back yard. I had them pick out a few beauties, stuck them with the pumpkins in the now-empty candy bowl, and voilà! An Autumn centrepiece!
