Pumpkins and a bridal shower

Another best friend of the Ann Marie's is getting married.  Weather now is perfect in Texas, so we planned an outdoor brunch party.  Idea from Venessa and Heather at the Picket Fence HERE.

This is my dollar tree white pumpkin project and how we used them.

Step One - buy all the carveable dollar tree pumpkins that are left to buy.  Sorry if the store near me is sold out.

Paint with whatever white paint you have leftover around the house.  I used a sponge brush and applied two coats.  Dries really fast. 

Use them to your hearts delight!

Here they are on mixed in for our centerpieces at the bridal shower brunch.


  1. What a gorgeous party! I am so in love with white pumpkins and never thought about painting the faux ones!!!! I bought out all the ones at my local dollar store also for a wreath I made and I felt a little guilty but not enough to not buy them! Happy Fall!

  2. WOW..that looks fantastic. You had to be all the talk Lori!

  3. Love it!!! That is the perfect fall bridal shower. I painted those pumpkins myself yesterday! I love them! You have a gift my friend! Looks fantastic!

  4. This year I'm just not in the mood to buy real pumpkins just to throw them out! I don't know what's wrong with me because it's never been a problem before. LOL! So this may be my solution. Hope there's some left to buy! Thanks for the tip!

  5. Beautiful tablescapes ... I'm sure it was a huge success. Your "white" pumpkins look wonderful! *Becca* (new follower)

  6. Looks outstanding...I promise I will not let it out of the bag:)


  7. I think you are a clever clever woman. I'm loving the clean look of the white pumpkins and your styling is wonderful.

  8. I love the look of painted pumpkins. Ours look so pretty on your tables.

  9. So pretty!!! I was married in the fall 19 years ago, and oh how I wish they had faux pumpkins back then I would have used them to decorate everthing! lol You did a fabulous job and thank you so much for the shout-out. Really appreciate it. :)


  10. The dollar tree has carvable pumpkins? Yikes! I think I need to make a trip to pick some up -- if there are any left over!

  11. Love the centerpieces! It all looks beautiful. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  12. Beautiful tables. I love the idea of painting the pumpkins!!
