Happy Halloween: Pumpkins on your Doorstep

Oct 30, 2014 • By Places Real Estate • 0 Comments


This time of year, you can’t help but fall for the charm of the season’s staple decoration, our favorite plump gourd, the pumpkin.  From now until Thanksgiving, these orange orbs have their stamp on everything from lattes to lagers.  This time of year is also the start of the busy holiday season, where time and energy run short.  If you don’t have time on your calendar to roast fresh pumpkin seeds or carve your pumpkin into a Picasso, bring a little pumpkin to your doorstep with these super easy and festive mail order options.

Pumpkin brews can be found in all sorts of varieties, from fruity lambics, to the staple ales, stouts, and porters.  They add the spirit to your fall gatherings and can be delivered right to your doorstep through websites like Craft Shack.

If you want a little eau de pumpkin wafting through the crisp air, grab a Linnea’s Lights’ pumpkin-scented candle online from Terrain.

As Thanksgiving is just around the corner, pumpkin pie is on everyone’s mind and menu.  Take a shortcut this year and order an award-winning pie to be delivered right to your table.  Pie Shop out of Atlanta makes theirs with fresh pumpkin and ships directly to you.  If you are feeling particularly indulgent, try their Pecan Topped Black Bottom Pumpkin Pie with a layer of semisweet chocolate, a pumpkin pie center, and then topped with candied pecans.

With a little ambition and next year’s harvest on the mind, why not start early and order a few seeds for your own future pumpkin patch?  Burpee offers a good variety of both edible and decorative pumpkin seeds online.  One variety can even produce fruit up to 300 pounds – look out county fair!

Mount Pleasant’s I’On neighborhood is one of the best places to celebrate Halloween the old-fashioned way.  205 Shelmore is an ideal family home in this storybook neighborhood.  Schedule a private showing of 205 Shelmore and scout out a spot for your very own pumpkin patch.
