Modern Blue Pumpkin Thanksgiving Decor Ideas – in Light Blue and Navy Blue

With Halloween just behind us, and Thanksgiving just a few short weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about what your Thanksgiving dinner is going to look like. If you are looking to mix up the traditional rustic orange color palette and go for something more modern, you’ll love the Thanksgiving party decor idea board I have put together for this week. Shades of light blue, mixed with a dark navy blue and hints of taupe and ivory combine to create this modern Thanksgiving dinner styling. To me, having lots of pumpkins in various sizes and colors help make this a cohesive look. I’d love to see the buffet have a few pops of blue or a gentle metallic accent, perhaps in the plates. To add just a touch of freshness, the pumpkin succulent planters have been incorporated. A fun dessert display is always in good taste, and this hanging dessert buffet stays within the color palette, but brings that modern touch with its clean lines. Beyond Thanksgiving, this is a great concept for transitioning from the end of summer into the fall season.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Outdoor Jack-o-lantern Halloween Party Ideas

Happy Fall!

To kick off the first week of October, which as far as I’m concerned kicks off all things pumpkin and autumn like, I thought I’d share an outdoor, jack-o-lantern themed Halloween party idea board. This themed party would be fantastic for a neighborhood get together, especially in a backyard or lawn setting. Trying to keep the scariness level friendly for all ages, I kept the Halloween inspiration focused on the pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns… no blood and gore. Don’t want to give little ones unnecessary spooks!

Here’s what I had in mind for this jack-o-lantern themed Halloween party idea board:

Pumpkin Patch Birthday Party

Happy Wednesday!

Today I’ve got a fun party idea board to share with you. I originally envisioned a fall birthday party for kids, but I think a lot of these elements would be great at a school carnival or neighborhood block party. Between the cute pumpkin cupcakes to the pumpkin bowl games, kids could have a lot of fun just running around and enjoying the beautiful weather outside! If you wanted to take this event to the next level, I’ve shared this post with tons of ideas for hosting a pumpkin decorating party. Here’s what I was thinking:
