Sometimes. I happened to go to my favorite florist and he had a very large pumpkin on the counter. He showed me how he plans to make natural containers for flowers. I plan on getting a smaller version to use as centerpiece. Happy Autumn.

I use the pumpkins, roast the seeds and get them early enough to be Samhain decorations. For US Thanksgiving, I get lots of winter squashes and use them as table decor, in a basket.
Have to put them somewhere. Might as well enjoy them.

I bought small pumpkins this year to display on my porch and I may add a couple of larger ones but I won’t carve them as I want them to last awhile

I live in a condo. My neighbor loves to decorate with pumpkins (live and tin pumpkin decorations) and I enjoy it. It really adds to the fall spirit. I have ceramic gourds, so I decorate the large plants I have in the common entrance with little gourds around the base.

But the season really makes me crave pumpkin foods of all varieties, from soup, to muffins, coffee, and pudding.

I usually don't bother with any decorations for any holidays. I am a single lady with no kids so holidays are not fun for me. It's nice that others do it.

I've already bought several of the small sweet Pie Pumpkins... they are out in my shed. two will get cooked and frozen soon...(I've been gone this past week...) One will get decorated for Halloween, (for me? or the grandson?? LOL) then cooked right afterwards. I don't get the big ones any more...although I imagine as the little guy gets older, that will get back into our traditions....

Happy Autumn Season!

Do you buy pumpkins to display on your front stoop? Carve or paint them?
Roast the pumpkin seeds or bake pies or muffins? emoticon
