A Pumpkin on a Pedestal

I saw an idea...and I thought I would try it. 

You all know I am all about trying out new decorating ideas. 

And this one is so simple. 

I wish I had thought of this idea before. 

It is a way to elevate, pun intended, the simple field pumpkin to a level of prominence in your fall decorating. 

I took a large bowl. 
I filled it with plastic grocery bags to hold the pumpkin to the height I wanted. 
Then I put some florist moss over the plastic bags for a finishing touch and to cover the bags. And finally I put a pumpkin on top. Ta Da!

I also added a stack of books to add a little more height, as my candlestick lamps are tall. 

I have seen, and do myself, baskets full of lots of pumpkins, gourds, nuts, etc. But I really like this idea of a large pumpkin sitting on a bowl.  Match the size of your pumpkin, fresh or faux, to the size of a bowl of your style. 

And here is my sweet pumpkin on a pedestal at lamplight.

What do you think? 

I believe you could do this using small pumpkins and small bowls as well as the large version I made. It's just so much fun to play! 

I would love to hear from you all to see if you are going to try making a pumpkin on a pedestal for your house. It's easy peasy!
