happy october!! we're so excited for fall style but more importantly we're ready for fall things like pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin patches and pumpkin pie and okay... maybe we're just excited for pumpkins. there's so many uses for them and we can't wait to show you our faves.
1) as a flower vase
we love fun festive decor and flowers of course! grab your favorite bouquet, plastic holder and all your carving tools and let's get started! first, carve a hole in the top of your pumpkin big enough for your vase and then scoop out the insides of your pumpkin! pro tip: use an old yogurt container to hold your flowers instead of a real vase. now you just have to add your flowers and some water and you've got the cutest centerpiece for your house this fall!
2) deck out your front porch
we know you're going to get dragged to at least one pumpkin patch this year anyway might as well stock up and make the cutest porch you can. this is easy: grab some mums, and decorate your pumpkins. whether you prefer painting or carving them, there's no wrong answer as long as you put your own personal touch on them. there won't be a cuter spot to drink your morning coffee than your own porch after you're finished!
3) cook 'em up!
everybody loves a good pumpkin flavored dish whether you're a pumpkin pie girl or a roasted pumpkin seed snacker... (personally, we'll take a pumpkin any way you cook it honestly) there's plenty of options! We'll link some of our fave pumpkin recipes below for you!
4) have yourself a spa day
we know it sounds crazy but hear us out! pumpkin is jam-packed with vitamins A + C which boost collagen production and fight signs of aging AND it contains fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids which increase cell turnover, brightening and smoothing your skin as a result! so without further aideu, click here <-- for your pumpkin face mask recipe!
5) use them to go full christmas
if you're already over fall and PSLs and all the other festivities, use your pumpkins in a stack to get in the christmas spirit! paint them white and dress your little pumpkin snowman up and start counting down the days until christmas! as of now, there's ~only~ 85 days left!
