How to style velvet pumpkins
Elegant Fireplace Mantel Display
Adorn your fireplace mantel with a collection of velvet pumpkins and candle holders. Choose pumpkins of different heights and sizes and arrange them alongside the flickering candlelight. This combination creates a warm, cozy ambiance that’s perfect for those chilly autumn evenings.
How to style velvet pumpkins in a breakfast nook.
I love to decorate our breakfast nook for the seasons. This Christmas look was more involved than the look above, but so fun to create!
To get a similar look, gather the pumpkins on a vintage, silver tray with other items like a small sugar bowl used as a vase. Set the pumpkins at different heights, and slightly askew for visual interest.
Add velvet pumpkins in the kitchen.
You might not want to add velvet pumpkins where you do a lot of prep, but a coffee station or command center is perfect.
Open shelves, glass cabinets and small hutches are perfect too. We recently added this antique shelf after scouring Ebay, Etsy and more. Originally, when we designed the kitchen we meant for two open shelves to be here, but as we lived in the space longer, I wanted something antique to contrast with the counter and cabinets.
Create a Luxurious Centerpiece- Arrange the pumpkins in a tablescape.
Design an opulent centerpiece for your dining table using velvet pumpkins. Here I simply set them on a faux eucalyptus garland, and added candlesticks in the middle. The table setting above was part of a fun holiday collaboration I did.
Or, place a large decorative tray or rustic wooden platter in the center, and arrange an assortment of velvet pumpkins in varying sizes on it. Intermingle them with some faux fall leaves, pinecones, and even a few twinkling fairy lights for an enchanting effect.
