The Great Pumpkin Invasion

Happy Wednesday, all! How's the week so far? It's a bit busy over here. Lots of fun projects in the works, another trip on the horizon and friends coming by tomorrow... which means it's time for a little fall decor - or as Mr. H. calls it, the great pumpkin invasion.

A curious neighbor stopped by to see what was going on as the annual pumpkin parade started on our front steps.

Outside I'm loving bright oranges and pops of color.

Indoors, it's more subtle shades - how great are all the pumpkin and gourd varietals we get to choose from currently? Ghosts, goblins, pinks, funky-shaped heirlooms and good old round and orange, they can be almost sculptural perched on a garden seat or lining up on the mantel.

Here's hoping the rest of your week is full of fall delights.

Any great pumpkins arrive at your house yet? XO


  1. How I love the décor for this season, and those white pumpkins are my favorites. I 've been meaning to photograph my white pumpkins, but school is wild and weekends are my only time to snap any photos! Even my weekends are full, but it's fun to watch what other people are doing, and your lovely décor is inspiring.


  2. Alas, the only pumpkins that might turn up around here will be on my plate but I love what you have done with your holiday decorating. :)
    PS. Another trip on the horizon?!

  3. Looking good over there Jeanne! It all looks beautiful and I have a particular love for the white minis this season. I hear you on the full days, my days could not be any fuller..I have been having many "Calgon take me away" moments and treasure the minutes I am able to sit at my computer:)

  4. Jeanne I love all of these amazing pumpkin colors and they make instant fall decor! Perfection!

  5. I can never resist buying them early, which means a few make a showing in late September. I know, that just isn't done, but I can't help it. I love the festive feel to this season.

  6. Jeanne, everything looks so fun and festive! I love all the odd shapes and fun colors of pumpkins and gourds. Your steps are beautiful and I like the subtle pumpkins inside too;) Beautiful post! xxleslie

  7. I see you all have been to the Great Pumpkin Patch :) Looking very fall and festive, Jeanne! Love it! Cheers

  8. How fun, Jeanne! Those pumpkins in the parade look so prim and proper and the ones in the house, so pretty. Can't wait to see you next week!

  9. My kind of invasion!!! Your home looks the pops of orange outside and the subtle tones inside. We do love our pumpkins here and sadly, so do the squirrels! :)

    So excited to see you soon!

  10. Your autumn décor both outdoors and inside is lovely. The neutral shades look so effective next to the mirror. 'The Great Pumpkin Invasion' - I really like that!
