5 Inspiring Pumpkins
Here at Emiline House we are very excited for Halloween and all the fun that it brings. One of the enjoyments that I love to do is Carving Pumpkins. I think that its a very tough decision deciding what design to choose, at least it always is for me! Continue reading to see some different ideas for your pumpkin this year.

Keep it Simple
We are starting with the simplest design for the pumpkin. As a child this was the style of design that I typically went for. Any shapes can be used for the features from stars to squares or even crescents like in the image. We loved the added detail of the plastic spiders glued to the pumpkin and the pretend spider webs all around. It looks as though the pumpkin is looking at the spiders all over him with a very sad and worried look! You can find Halloween decorations such as plastic spiders in craft shops.
This design is a great idea if you have young children!
Fearless Fruit and Veg
Why not try stuffed peppers with funny faces to treat everyone at your Halloween party. Or mix things up by carving a pineapple with a scary face like in the right image! You can use any large vegetable or fruit, just use your imagination.
We absolutely love the autumnal vibe this centre piece gives off. This is a brilliant way to dress up your home this month. It is all up to you what flowers you use but we think these roses, Gerberas, Carnations and Hypericum in the lovely and orange and red shades make a beautiful arrangement.
The pumpkin has been cleverly carved with a design containing large stars. This can be achieved by using a cookie cutter or a stencil. Any design can be used on the pumpkin or you could even leave it plain.
We think this pumpkin would look beautiful placed in the hallway to brighten your mood as you enter your house, or even on the fireplace next to a glowing candle. See how to DIY your candles here!
These pumpkins will look great by themselves but look beautiful paired together. They all compliment each other with their different designs. Top Tip!: use a drill or electric screwdriver to create perfect holes in the pumpkin.
It's a great idea to layer the designs by placing them up the steps to your home, this idea can be used on the 31st to let people know you are ready for Trick or Treaters. When you are carving your pumpkin, draw the designs on first with a marker that can easily be wiped off if you don't like the design. This saves you making a mistake when cutting.
