Creative Fall Decor: How to Combine Pumpkins & Mums for Autumn Decorating

I love decorating the house for fall – inside and out. And am always looking for creative new ways to celebrate the season with my kids. As we were putting out our pumpkins, spiders and scarecrows a few years ago, I noticed a beautiful idea on my neighbors' front steps. They are incredibly nice people, so I didn't think they'd mind me passing on this great tip!

They hollowed out their pumpkins and used them as planters for their mums! I thought it was such a lovely way to combine two fall favorites, so I snapped a picture to share with you (see image below). What do you think?

Do you have any fresh fall ideas? Please share them with the tribe!

What a cute idea, Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds . I buy mums every year and always just plant them in a pot for a centerpiece. Going to plant them in pumpkins this year! After they've bloomed, I plant them in the ground. They bloom all summer and into the fall. So don't throw them away after the blooms fade. My yellow mums are blooming now.
