A Sophisticated Spin on Halloween Decor

Although Michelle, editor of Gardenista, no longer needs to decorate her garden for Halloween (her girls are all grown up), she still finds it hard to give up the habit. Here is a last minute idea for decorating with gourds and pumpkins.

Above: Above: More tasteful than the old days, yes, but still satisfying. Suspend a set of 16 assorted dyed gourds from a string; a Dried Gourd Crate is $68 from Terrain.

Above: The gourds range in height from 4 to 8 inches tall; keep them out of direct sunlight.

Above: Also available via wooden crate: assortments of pumpkins and mini pumpkins.

Above: A set of 10 assorted pumpkin and gourds, in sizes ranging from 3 to 9 inches; a Fresh Pumpkin Crate is $68 from Terrain.

TY. I love Halloween and decorating for it. I've carved a lot of different types of pumpkins and gourds and I roast the pumpkin seeds.
