There is so much to tell you and show you today, so I’m just going to jump right in. First, I am excited to be partnering with LoveFeast Shop to feature their amazing line of Hot Skwash™ Pumpkins. Hot Skwash™ is the premier source of handmade silk velvet pumpkins and other artful objects…and they are beautiful. I’ll show you how to display and arrange these pumpkins for easy fall decorating.

I’ve had an ongoing love affair with velvet pumpkins for a few years. I think they have a special charm and the best thing is that they can be displayed for months without rotting! I had a few velvet pumpkins that I had collected, but sadly they were destroyed by water in my basement. When the opportunity to work with LoveFeast Shop was offered, I have to admit I was thrilled.
My best tip for using velvet pumpkins in your fall decorating is to use some sort of natural element as a base. By doing that, the pumpkins come to life and are easy to arrange. Any kind of real or preserved greenery will work, but I chose seeded eucalyptus. It dries beautifully and is the prettiest shade of green. To begin, I added eucalyptus to my large ironstone bowl and then nestled in some pumpkins.
Tip: Seeded eucalyptus can be hard to find. It’s worth the hunt though! I had to special order mine from the floral department of a local grocery store. Click HERE to see seeded eucalyptus online.
After that, I cleaned my silver urns and added eucalyptus to them as well. I just love the two twin, neutral pumpkins set on top of the urns.
One other lovely feature of the pumpkins is their stems. They are from real pumpkins and gourds…and in addition to adding interest, they add another natural element.
The Hot Skwash™ pumpkins come in many different sizes…and the tiniest ones have the biggest personalities. I think they are just the cutest!
A few more fall decorating ideas using velvet pumpkins:
- Stack in lanterns.
