Velvet pumpkin vignette

Velvety delightful pumpkins... 
so simple and sweet

And so perfect for mixing and mingling with baby boos, dried flowers and pretty grasses 
for autumn stylings
I am a big natural decor kind of girl when it comes to autumn...
but sometimes a little bit of glam is exactly perfect for adding that certain something.
This statue stands proudly on the sideboard in the dining area
You might remember seeing it in my book
where I shared it wearing a crown quite similar to this one.

So easy to make and it adds such a charming softness to a heavy concrete piece.

And while I played with refreshing some of the dried flowers( more coming soon) 
those pumpkins arrived and it seemed like a perfect spot to place them tucked into the greenery 
and bits of dried blooms for a simple vignette.

I chose neutral tones- and a pop of aubergine.
I have been so drawn to those dusty blush and purples this season- 
and this wee pumpkin was talking to me.

Accented with a few pretty jewels- it absolutely sparkles.

And every autumn vignette deserves a bit of sparkle don't you think?
Twinkle lights, a bonfire or a jeweled pumpkin.

Or maybe one topped with feathers is your perfect one.

Or what about that weeeee tiny little one with the twirly stem? 
I am obsessed with it. 
So cute.

Truth be told- these pumpkins didn't stay here. 
After I photographed them-  my dining room did a big shuffle for a photography project
and those sweet velvet pumpkins with pretty embellishments and real pumpkin stems
shuffled right on into a different vignette. 
More coming on where they landed soon- 
and if you want some of your own velvet pumpkins-

And something fun:

They are giving away a  $200.00 gift card to LoveFeast Shop.
