Last year I did a piece on Trendy Pumpkins that was a big hit and recently has had a popularity surge again. Since everyone has been enjoying this post so much I figured I’d make it a tradition– so here’s “Trendy Pumpkins” 2011 edition.
If you read last year’s post I featured a Southern Proper, Lilly Pulitzer and Monogram pumpkin and discussed some cute decorating ideas for them. Here are some fresh ideas for 2011 in case you are planning a last minute Halloween party or want some decorations for Thanksgiving. This year I feel like I’ve been seeing a lot more no-carve pumpkins that are painted, decoupaged, glittered and hot-glued! Here are some cute ideas from a fellow blogger, Juggling with Kids.
Boo made from buttons with a ribbon top-
Here are some more “preppy pumpkins.” Or try some pumpkins incorporated into the decorations using flowers or putting them around inside. And of course it’s always nice to have different sized pumpkins that can be arranged in different ways to add dimension and interest.

Pumpkin with mums and a bow wrapped around-
Or maybe you’re more into something flashy like this glittery pumpkin-
Finally, to round out this year’s ideas, I just found Martha’s (yes, Stewart, the queen of crafts) take on the subject and I think these gourd candles are really cute even though they’re from a few years ago. So good luck with your Halloween decorations and celebrations! Till next time,
