Our Best Collection Yet of Preppy Pumpkins (Lilly Pulitzer, Vera Bradley, Monograms, Oh My!)

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.

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.
