While traditionally pumpkins get the most visibility during Halloween, they also fit very elegantly into a fall themed wedding. In choosing your pumpkins, you’ll want to be sure to select healthy ones – without any small holes, soft spots or even little cuts which often indicate internal rotting and may cause your overall design to decay quickly. Additionally, a healthy set of pumpkins can linger for a little while longer either at home or with guests.  

Here are some more ideas to get you started with your pumpkin vases – including painting your pumpkins. Click here to learn more about this gorgeous centerpiece and here for a video tutorial. Happy crafting!
