We may be jumping the gun a little bit with this fall-decor themed post, but we just can’t contain ourselves! Fall is our favorite time of the year here at Meadowbrooke Gourds and decorating with fall gourds offers endless inspiration and creativity. Get started now planning your fall parties and decorations. You will be ready when fall is finally here!

These beautiful ideas are from Better Homes and Gardens. They are using fresh, ornamental gourds for their displays, however, we suggest using dried gourds for a display that can be used and changed year after year!

Gourd Place Setting:
Charm your guests with an adorable petite gourd welcoming them to their seat!  Wrap a winding twig around each gourd. Then, attach a ribbon with each guest’s name.

We suggest using one of our petite splendor gourds instead. They come packaged in a bag of five and you will receive one each of the following colors: Honey, Nutmeg, Paprika, Pumpkin Spice and Parsley.

Multi-Layered Centerpiece
This centerpiece idea really caught our attention. Pairing gourds with books offers an unexpected table-scape. We love the look of the black with the natural colors of the gourds.
