I do love a seeing a pumpkin at this time of year. My eternal search for a white mini ‘baby boo’ gourd was moderately successful when I loaded up my trolley with a pale yellow one in my local Lidl. I am yet to visit the rather fabulous pumpkin patch in Warwickshire where RMS reader Kat suggested I go to last year. Apparently they have heaps of different varieties.

Below is a gallery of inspiration to help you gather ideas to rock your own pumpkin this October. I do love the matte painted designs but my particular favourite is the idea of drilling holes through a pumpkin carcass. When the candle glows inside it looks very stylish yet seasonal. Then there’s the pineapple. You know how much we love a pineapple at Rock My Ltd HQ.


So why the need for all this inspiration? Well it’s obviously Halloween soon so we’d love it if you could share your own ghoulish gourds with via Instagram and Twitter. The prize, just an overall feeling of wellbeing and feeling all smug inside, oh and obviously you get to keep your rather epic creation.

To take part simply pop your images on Instagram or Twitter mentioning either @rockmystyle or @rockmyfamily with the hashtag #RockMyPumpkin. I can’t wait to see what you clever lot come up with. We’ll be sharing some of your photos on our own social media with a little gallery over on our new blog Rock My Familytoo.

How do you decorate for halloween? Do you usually carve a pumpkin for October 31st? What design are you going for this year?
