go pumpkin in 2013

Pumpkin Power!

Celebrate the fall season by decorating your reception venue with pumpkins and seasonal flowers: you could even hollow out pumpkins and fill them with flowers to make table centerpieces that will be a real talking point.

Pumpkins are the perfect decorations for rustic fall weddings. Rather than flower baskets, why not have your younger flower girls carry Halloween pumpkins down the aisle at your wedding ceremony: you can fill the pumpkins with traditional petals, or even use Halloween candy if you want something unusual that will really catch your guests by surprise!

Pumpkins will also great color inspiration for the younger members of your wedding party: flower girls and ring bearers will look wonderful accessorized with rich orange ribbons and bow ties. And if that just isn’t enough pumpkin for you, think of all the pumpkin recipes you could incorporate into your wedding food: pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, you could even have a pumpkin flavoured wedding cake if you want to keep your menu choices seasonal!
