I think that "Fall" or "Thanksgiving" decorating is the least expensive of all the seasons to decorate. Half of my pumpkins, vegetables and gourds are fake and were bought at least 50% to 90% off right after subsequent Halloweens. I also use them in my still life setups occasionally, so I guess if I was smart, I could deduct their cost. I also use some real vegetables. We'll see if we actually cook them or just throw them away (hopefully before they get too mushy and ruin the furniture!) Anyway, the pumpkin centerpiece is new. I cut the top off a pumpkin I used for Halloween and put Styrofoam and a few rocks from our backyard in it and arranged the silk flowers inside. I had to glue some silk leaves onto one side of the pumpkin because it has a mysterious bite taken out of it. Some little goblin got to it!
