cute ideas: no carve pumpkins

I went to a pumpkin patch yesterday, which means it’s officially fall. Perhaps a little too ecstatically, I dragged my boyfriend through rows of pumpkins until I found the right one. I’ve debated on whether or not I should carve it, since carving is messy and it might rot soon. While I decide, here are some lovely ideas for pumpkins if you don’t want to deal with the carving mess. Now that I’m a grown up, it’s time to have grown up seasonal decorations.

3. Martha makes magic again with her Toadstool Gourd and Pumpkin display. There’s also a tutorial.
4. These plaid pumpkins are adorable over at Better Homes and Gardens.

Also, here are some carved ones that look like they require a lot of work. But I couldn’t leave without showing you these cuties

Porcupines! Aren’t they perfect? There’s even a tutorial, but this one seems like you have to be a pumpkin carving pro to create these.
