Autumn decorating, silver leaf pumpkins and nailhead trim pumpkins
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Silver pumpkins shine in this cool display, but that's not the only idea here. Try embellishing a painted or unpainted pumpkin with nailheads — used here as a monogram — or dotting it with metal studs. Happy Halloween!Tip: Keep pumpkins in a cool spot away from strong sunlight to preserve them as long as possible. Depending on your climate and whether you display them indoors or outdoors, they'll last at least two or three weeks, and sometimes much longer.
Personalize your pumpkin decor with stick-on embellishments. For the dinner table, I would take this same idea and apply initials to small gourds for seating assignments (and easy party favors – who doesn't like a cute takeaway?). The striped tablecloth and splash of green enliven the look. Try an alternative to natural pumpkin colors: Spray-paint pumpkins and gourds to your heart's content! Bring these elements to the dinner table with simple white plates, wine glasses and a few candles.
