One great thing about pumpkins and gourds is that they come in all shapes and sizes! While this may seem awkward at first, it means that you can use them as a filler for just about anything! This idea of using different shaped pumpkins, gourds and pine cones to fill up some lanterns is great for Autumn!

No two will be exactly alike, and that’s what makes it so fun! I love the vintage feel of the colors and the tray in this setup!
