Fresh or Faux

Purists go for fresh pumpkins and it’s a great tradition to follow. They have a warm and earthy aroma when illuminated with candles. They start to decompose within a week; display in a cool shady area.

Faux pumpkin fans prefer the fake ones primarily because they last from season to season. They are also lightweight.

Purchase them year-round at funkins.com or buy in-season at craft stores or large retail chains.
