Pumpkin décor

Pumpkins at your fall wedding<br><a href=http://www.emilieinc.com target=_blank>emilie inc. photography</a>

In honor of Halloween later this month, we thought we’d round up some holiday-themed décor ideas. Since brain-eating zombies and wart-nosed witches don’t exactly scream “wedding,” we opted for the lovely, utterly unspooky pumpkin.


When it comes to carving pumpkins, eerie faces are only the beginning. Why not whittle your monogram into a few of the gourds and illuminate them for a seasonal luminary display? Get some paring pointers from Martha Stewart. Or, etch a delicate leaf motif into a few pumpkins and scatter them around your ceremony or reception site.

Table treatments

You didn’t think Martha had just one pumpkin décor project, did you? Of course not. Check out her white pumpkin-as-vase DIY centerpiece and her glittery gourd table decorations. Equally as simple and striking is this idea to use mini pumpkins as escort cards. Pin a card to each one, and poof, your table assignments are done.

Faux flourishes

Pumpkins don’t have to come straight off the vine to make an autumnal impact. These yarn-wrapped foam pumpkins will last long after the wedding, perfect for dressing up a front porch or fireplace mantle.  And Mr. and Mrs. pumpkin cake toppers? Yes, please.

For a little treat with these decorative tricks, take a look at this no-holds-barred Halloween wedding. These two love birds took the Jewish custom of smashing a glass under the chuppah to a whole new level, subbing in — you guessed it — a pumpkin.
