Hello-Hello and Happy Friday.
It’s that time of year here at The Prepatorium. We’ve had our first frost, we’ve
been eating all of the purchased the Halloween candy and it seems there are pumpkins decorating almost every porch in our neighborhood. That means it is also time for this year’s version of the Great Preppy Pumpkin Patch. We begin with this snappy trio from the very talented Susie Bajakian, we discovered them on her My Pumpkin Patch Pinterest page.
We have to include these beauties by the ever-so-creative Kearsley from The Tipsy Skipper, done using her very own designs.
We discovered these at the Young House Love blog, where there are multiple pumpkin posts, all of them delightful.
I like the abstract pink and green design on these by This Little Mama.
Here is a festive group, all done by the one and only Kappa Prep of Monograms and Manicures.
These bright pumpkins come to us via the Whatever blog.
There are even pumpkins for those of us who are nautically inclined, these are by Coastal Living. (Where this a fabulous tutorial and templates to make your own!)
These are via Nautical Luxuries.
This is the first time we have featured Vera Bradley pumpkins, another sensational group by Suzie Bajakian.
Argyle pumpkins just make me smile, these are from Sunnyside Up Designs.
More argyle fabulosity.
When it comes to monogrammed pumpkins, there are quite a few styles. Designer Eddie Ross created this one several years ago.
How about this perky duo from the Party Patisserie?
This one from Home Talk features a more elaborate monogram.
Here we have an entire family of personalized and beribboned pumpkins via Digging for Diamonds.
Another group shot.
Some like to carve the monogram into the skin only, others prefer cutting all the way through the pumpkin, letting that candlelight better show the monogram in the dark. Lower left is a design by our pals at Where Fashion Meets Food, the two on the right come via Creative Southern Belle.
There’s another tutorial on making Lillified pumpkins at Pop Cosmo.
Another fabulous group of pumpkins from Suzie Bajakian.
This set is done in Scarlet Begonia (I think), we found them on Pinterest.

We’ll leave you with a few more that qualify as Pretty in Pink in our book, these are from Chatelaine magazine.
