I think velvet pumpkins are now a staple this time of year. I bought mine a few years ago and although the cost was steep, I know that I will put them out for many years to come.
You can find velvet pumpkins at most of your gift shops, but if you want them to last try to find high quality. You can tell this by a the real pumpkin stem, the quality of the velvet and beautiful color selections. If you cannot find them in your local boutique gift shops, you can order them individually and in group at Plush Pumpkin. This is where I fought my turquoise crop. They sell them in many beautiful shades so you can pick the ones that fit in your home. Be prepared to spend between $85 – $150 for a set of three.
If you are looking to make a centerpiece or a display out of your velvet pumpkins, be sure to get at least a few sizes in a variety of shades. They look perfect in a dough bowl, on a tray or even placed direction on your mantel or entry table. Gus, our new family memeber is a fan.
Of course I never want to make Owen jealous so I feel the need to include this image.
