The Lil’ Punkin Patch Centerpiece

HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL, YA’LL!!!

It’s beginning to look a lot like fall around here!  Can I just say how much I love my reclaimed wood centerpiece?! I love to fill it with seasonal things for the table.  It’s so much fun to see what else I can display in there with every seasonal change.

This season: Real Baby Pumpkins.

(okay so there are a *few* tiny fake ones…okay…okay…sheesh) But most are real. 🙂

I know I could have been more trendy with the white and green pumpkins, but I am going for more of a classic “Charlie-Brown-pumpkin-patch” feel. Is that a thing??? Well….it is now!

Introducing my Pumpkin Patch inspired centerpiece…oh, I mean Punkin. I have decided that baby pumpkins in my house are affectionately now called, “Punkins.”

LIFESTYLED TIP:  It’s worth it to dig through the pumpkin bin to find the ones with the longest stems.  They seem more complete to me and more natural. I love a good long pumpkin stem!

Yes, I can’t get over it, they are too cute. You know it’s true when the three-year-old holds them she talks to them in a baby voice!

Come, sit, sip something warm, relax and stare at little nestled pumpkins….now all your problems are gone. 😉

The pic doesn’t do it justice but when I light the candles at night, it really does have that “Charlie-Brown-Great-Pumpkin” thing going on.

 

Happy Fall Y’ALL!

Now if we can just get rid of this pesky 90 degree weather and add in some fall wardrobe, I will almost be set. Stay tuned more for fall and Halloween ideas coming soon!

Love your LifeStyled,
