Pumpkin Chic: Decorating with Pumpkins and Gourds
New in Paper
"This gorgeous little book is glowing with wonderful photographs and easy-to-follow directions...Will make you grin like a jack-o'-lantern at the variety of departures from the norm it offers."--Chicago Tribune
From outdoor fun to indoor elegance, pumpkins aren't just for jack-o-lanterns anymore--as Country Living so beautifully demonstrates in dozens of sparkling, inspiring photographs. Whether tall or short, round or skinny, textured, sideways, or even upside-down, these autumnal jewels can offer a range of surprising and creative decorating options. Conjure up a creepy, ivy-haired witch or scare up some flying bats to flutter over the front door. Brighten a window ledge with a light-studded gourd or two. Or add a twist to seasonal decorating with pumpkin candy dishes, centerpieces, and candleholders. All the basics on size, shape, texture, colors, and carving techniques are covered.
