5 Creative Uses For Pumpkins In Your Wedding

It’s prime pumpkin season here in New England and people are using them in everything from recipes to mantle decor. I might be the only female blogger in the universe who doesn’t go crazy over the return of PSLs from Starbucks (Pumpkin Spice Lattes for those of you not in the club) but don’t worry, I DO love a good homemade pumpkin bread or a properly autumn looking decorative pumpkin display.  Even more so, I’ve been loving all the creative ways people have been incorporating pumpkins into their fall weddings, even painting them if orange doesn’t fit in with their color scheme. Below is some inspiration for your own fall wedding, although many of these ideas could just as easily work for any seasonal gathering or home spruce up.

Drink Cooler: I’m probably going to make one of these to store all my pumpkin beers in this fall because it’s just so cool, but seriously how neat would it be as a table display/drink holder for a bridal shower or wedding?

Flower Holder: A pumpkin makes a great centerpiece, especially when hollowed out and filled with flowers. I especially love how this one is painted and filled with flowers in an unexpected color palette.

Escort Cards: Simple and cute, mini pumpkins make a great accompaniment to table assignments and can also double as take-home favors for your guests.

Save the Dates: Even if you’re not having a fall wedding, you can still take advantage of fall fun by using carved pumpkins to announce your upcoming wedding date.
