Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins!

October 6, 2016 • Contributor: Scarlet Letters Copywriting

Pumpkins: we love them. We love how they look, what they taste like and what they represent. They usher us into the holidays: up go those friendly (sometimes freaky) jack-o’-lanterns, and hand-turkey crafts follow, only to be replaced by December’s Christmas trees and snowmen. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s savor the here and now: it’s pumpkin season!


The calendar states that fall begins on September 22nd, but let’s be real: it actually starts when Trader Joe’s unveils their pumpkin goodies. This place is one-stop shopping for those who crave that distinct, savory taste. From tortilla chips to chai-tea latte mix, to raviolis, to ice cream, it’s a pumpkin-loving foodie’s paradise. Visit their site to find the store nearest you.

Once you’ve got all your ingredients together, there’s no better fall activity than cooking gourmet pumpkin creations in a cozy kitchen. We love this harvest bruschetta from Sweet Paul; check out his site here.


Celebrate October with this charming vintage pumpkin— the perfect addition to a front porch or hearth. The project is available in Design Space!


This year, consider making an unexpected but decidedly elegant outdoor color choice and go with white. Fresh, crisp and clean, it’s a lovely contrast to autumnal reds and oranges.



Create your own pumpkin world with a miniature fairy garden. Even the most wicked of witches would be happy to hang her hat in this charming craft from our partner, Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts. Check it out here.

Want to keep it simple? Avoid sharp knives and messy seeds by decorating your pumpkin using your Cricut! This eye-catching spider ring is available in Design Space.



When it comes to buying your wares: head to the most fun place possible: a pumpkin patch! Bustling with busy shoppers, excited children and—if you’re lucky—tractors offering hayrides, your local pumpkin patch is the ultimate fall destination. Check out PumpkinPatchesAndMore.com for a list of locations in every state!

An easy way to transform a room is with throw pillows. We love these selections from Pottery Barn… and they can embellish your couch all the way to Thanksgiving! Check them out here.


Make the beauty of pumpkins part of your beauty regimen with this Peter Thomas Roth enzyme mask. Available at Sephora, this powerful treatment will make your skin smoother, more vibrant and—best of all—you’ll smell divine!



Whether your pumpkins are basic black, classic orange or ghostly white, Cricut’s got the perfect way to transform them into jaw-dropping Halloween creations. You’ll find these looks in Design Space.


That’s our quick peek at one of our favorite things about the fall. Whether you’re taking a pumpkin-scented bubble bath, making a project with your Cricut, sipping an iconic latte, or carving one with your kids, we hope you’ll make time for pumpkins this month!
