My favorite fall gourds are the blue/green aqua ones. When they are in the store, I have to surrender that summer is really gone. Here is a vignette in my family room with my all-time favorite one the bumpy one in a hand-carved dough bowl from Sweden. I brought back four bowls in May circa 1860. The canvas I threw some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on in Chateau Grey [actually green] and a metallic gold stencil. I did this over top of an old coral canvas I was tired of. Of course, the paint didn't stick very well, but it is just to go with the color of the gourds. The paler aqua gourds look so great with Swedish furniture. The colors just blend so well. I have those on another table.
Are you an orange pumpkin decorator, or do you like the aqua green ones like I do?
