It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

Hello Everyone!
What says *fall* more than pumpkins?
I have been slowly adding back some fall decor after my cleaning last year. While browsing Kirklands I found this monogram pumpkin in white. They also carry them in the traditional orange. Here is their link to the online store.
Click on my Pinterest boards *Autumn Arrives* and *Happy Halloween* to see even more.
I just love this time of year!
 I added green napkins and wheat bundles also from Kirklands.
 This is on the buffet table in the formal dining room.
 Monogram carved pumpkins on a chair. How cute!
Pumpkins on candlesticks. I'm borrowing this one for sure. So easy!
A pumpkin tray with carvings and flowers.
A mini pumpkin tree. Adorable!

How neat is this idea! It's a pumpkin address topiary.
Pumpkin porch topiaries and bows. I'm always a sucker for bows. 
Check this out... sweater pumpkins!
Kristen has created a pretty fall vignette with a pumpkin.
Go by and congratulate her today. She has big news!
Liz is an amazing and talented fall decorator. Check her out!
 It must be fall when all of the sweet goodies come out. Yum!

How cute is this? ... Spooky pumpkin chocolate strawberries! 
Fall celebrations call for a pumpkin pie martini. Now I'm ready!
How about you? Do you decorate with pumpkins?
Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Melissa, I miss Kirkland's store, they closed down, :(. I love pumpkins, I'd keep one up all the time, I think, if people wouldn't comment on it! xo

Brooke said...

I love it! My favorites is the topiary!



Pam said...

Very cute white pumpkin. You've reminded me that I want to make some sweater pumpkins this year.

Such great ideas! It's still hot here & I just haven't been motivated to decorate for fall.

Melissa, I love your fall decor. The monogrammed pumpkin is wonderful. Love your inspiration photos!

Miss Janice said...

Love your Autumn settings Melissa! Lord, I like the looks of that pumpkin martini, even though I've never tasted a martini in my life!

Melissa Miller said...

Miss Janice I hear that. Martinis give me a headache. Maybe they make a non-alcoholic version and we could call it dessert. Yum!

Allyson Pecilunas said...

Such a pretty fall display, Melissa! I love the pumpkin. Love all of your pins too!

CAS said...

Your table vignette is lovely, Melissa! Kirkland's is one of my favorite places. Love all the inspiration photos!

What a pretty post Melissa! I love all the fall/pumpkin-y pretties!

I can just see Shelia (Note Songs) borrowing the "Pumpkin Tree" idea and making it!! It's right up her talented alley!!


Denise said...

Hi Melissa, I love all the photos, especially the strawberries and martini ;-)
I can't wait to decorate for fall, but I have to get my furniture first!! Some of it should be arriving today :)

Jo said...

Fall is right around the corner. Once we are out of the 80s I can think about putting out my fall decorations. Great inspirational photos!

Happy Friday, Melissa! =)
Your table vignette is so pretty. I love the softer muted colors and that pumpkin is so cute! Thank you so much for the mention of my blog, you are the sweetest!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Happy Fall! XO ~Liz

Kelly said...

Oh I love all of those great pumpkins pics! Your monogrammed pumpkin looks great in your foyer. I do like decorating with pumpkins too. I haven't pulled mine out yet though. It has finally been getting cooler, so that should help motivate me to decorate soon.

Tara G. said...
