Fall foliage and florals are one of the best highlights of the season. The changing weather brings out some of nature’s most stunning spectacles, and what better way to showcase seasonal blooms than in an autumnal vase: pumpkins. Gourds make great planters once hollowed out, and can be decorated in any style. These DIY pumpkin planters look beautiful on tablescapes and porches, and can last through Thanksgiving, meaning less decor to worry about when making plans for entertaining.
