I have been reading all kinds of posts about pumpkin pie, pumpkin pie ice cream, pumpkin lattes and even spiced pumpkin beer! All this great pumpkin talk has got me thinking of how much I miss Halloween in the US and the love of all things sweet and pumpkin. Here in Australia, pumpkin is strictly a vegetable, usually served roasted, sometimes mixed with mashed potatoes and often as a soup. I don’t mind it as a soup if it has ginger or some other spicy flavour going on but I can’t do it as a boring old veg because I grew up loving pumpkin pie.
Halloween and the Great Pumpkin: There are so many cool Halloween ideas on Pinterest that it got me looking for home decor, food and fashion to go with the black and orange theme of the day. I usually won’t wear black with orange because I don’t want to look like the great pumpkin however, these fashion inspirations all look great, the food divine and the homes lovely.
More Inspiration: I rather like the black varnished walls in the bedroom picture above. Very sophisticated. My other favourite would be the pumpkin coloured shirt with the silver statement necklace. I like that it kind of looks like a web. And if you are in the Northern Hemisphere the black coat with the pumpkin coloured scarf looks nice and cozy.
Hope you all have a fun, safe and splendidly scary Halloween! May the Great Pumpkin visit your patch of the woods.
