Pumpkin Patch Party

Whether you’re hosting a get-together in your backyard or by the lake, pumpkins are a staple decoration for any fall festival. We used a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes to incorporate fall’s favorite motif into a porch party, outdoor dinner, and a casual day spent beneath the warmth of the autumn sun. Complete the spread with a delicious fall dessert, like our pumpkin patch pies

SIT EASY: Place pumpkins on haystacks to create casual seating for an outdoor party. A banner adds a festive touch to this cheerful scene. 

ORANGE ACCENTS: Place pumpkins about the property in bales and atop a dining table. Small pumpkins, like the ones shown above, serve as a great complement to a floral centerpiece. 

TAKE A SIP: Set up a drink station by the water, allowing guests to enjoy the beautiful view while sipping a sweet autumnal beverage. 

SIT BACK, RELAX: Bales of hay covered in quilts become outdoor sofas while a salvaged coffee table serves as the perfect place for potted seasonal plants. 

RESTORED DECOR: A wooden spool turns into a charming table when used for displaying ceramic pumpkins and flowers. 

MONOCHROMATIC MAGIC: Consider the impact of a display that uses many pumpkins in the same color family. Blue varieties, which range from light gray to dark green, are gorgeous en masse on a porch. White pumpkins create an appealing display with their creamy simplicity and artistic appeal.
