9 Quick Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

Pumpkins

Halloween is less than a week away. Time for ghosts, goblins, princesses, and pumpkins to come out. Trick or treaters will be landing on some of your doorsteps hoping for more treats than tricks. Most of you have done your decorating at this point. In case you haven’t started here are a few quick and easy tips.

#1 Wayward Halloween has some free gifts at the starting point. One is a pumpkin carving table. Find Zerkalo for their carved pumpkin gacha. Get one of nine candle lit pumpkins for 50L per pull.

#2 Gachatopia is having their annual Tag! Gacha event. Get your hud and visit Imeka. There you will find cute kitty cat pumpkins gacha for just 25L a pull. Get the coupon to obtain Imeka’s special rare item that is a pumpkin ghost. This event is fun and will take you to visit many stores across the grid.

#3 What Next is known for their great decor. These pumpkins were actually released last year, but were so well done that you still see them all over the grid. Pumpkins come packaged individually and as displayed. They are copy and modify, so you can make them as big or small as you want. I believe these are priced at 120L for the grouping.

#4 Holiday Appreciation Association presents Havenhollow III. Trick or treat door to door and explore the scary sim. This free pumpkin pair gift from MishMish awaits you along with some other prizes at the event start.

#5 Pilot has made these adorable pumpkins with a mouse peeking out of them. Five colors to choose from or a fatpack. Get it at Collabor88 for 188L per pumpkin.

#6 Again we have pumpkins from What Next. These were available for FLF just the other Friday. Hopefully you didn’t miss out on that deal. The group of five pumpkins are still available for 150L. They are modify and copy. Candles inside can be turned on or off by touch.

#7 Half-Deer put these pumpkins out last year for FLF. I went to her store and saw they are still available for 50L. They are modify, copy, and completely adorable.

#8 Zerkalo has a gorgeous fall pumpkin with a strand of pearls draped across it. This pumpkin has eluded me. I have played that machine quite a bit and have been unsuccessful. I have multiples of the other commons if you want to trade! This whole set is pretty and at The Seasons Story. 50L pull

#9 I just couldn’t resist sharing this pumpkin. Apothecary jars are something that I really love. 22769 has created a scene of ghosts and a haunted house inside this pumpkin. You can choose from eight different color combinations. This pumpkin is also at The Seasons Story. 175L

Dreamer

Dreamer

The theme for this round of One Word is Fairytales. I felt that Windsong’s items for the event were dreamy. The candles have a script in them that makes them bob up and down a tiny bit. The look just like they are floating. I’ve put them in my Pilot romantic bathtub that came from The Arcade a few rounds ago. You’ll also find the Windsong mirror and divider at One Word. The divider allows you to add a picture to it. I’ve put one from when I was visiting Black Swan years ago.

Blue Christmas

Blue Christmas

Christmas is my most favorite time of the year! This year I’m having a Blue Christmas, but not because of sadness. Because I also love the color blue, and I just happen to have some new and really pretty blue decor. llorisen has these really nice skyboxes at the Arcade. They are perfect and have scripted shrubs, floors, windows, and curtains. It is just one big room, but it has an upstairs/downstairs kind of separation. I think it is a great loft. Inside I decorated it with the coveted pretty blue dust bunny christmas tree. I imagine that there was a blue theme going on at the Arcade. Also the Apple Fall deer has a blue scarf on, the PEACE letters from Trompe Loeil are blue, and the little kitten inside the gift box from granny has a blue blanket. This has really been a great round of Arcade. I love everything that I have from the gachas.

Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat Event begins October 15th and ends November 5th. Each designer will have one free item and more treats that will be for sale. This looks like a great event for your child avatar.

I am ready for trick or treaters! The treats that I have out for halloween come from the Trunk or Treat event. You’ll find toffee apples, cookies, bat cakes, cinnamon swirls, and candy sticks at my rare candy stall. The path is lit up by PILOT hanging pumpkin lanterns and Little Lamb mason jar lanterns. It looks like someone dropped their collectible card from floweys The Most Famous SL Witches deck on the windsong witch is in welcome mat. Come and get your trick or treats!

Brewster’s Brew

Brewster's Brew

I love cupcakes. They are the perfect size and no plate or fork is needed to enjoy the delicious dessert. With so many choices here I can’t seem to make up my mind.

This is the start of my visiting bakeries and coffee shops in SecondLife and sharing them with you. These places are filled with so many items inside that I will just be sharing a few items of the items.

The bakery building is a new release from dust bunny. Inside and out you can find goodies from 8f8 La Petite Joie Cafe gacha, which is at the current Arcade round. This round ends soon, but you will be able to play the gacha at the 8f8 main store. The fall pumpkins decor out front comes from PILOT. The inside is decorated with goodies from Tres Blah, 8f8 (current and past gacha), and Pilot. Tres Blah has made my favorite desserts found in SecondLife. Her desserts are cute, fun, and not too lifelike. All of the Tres Blah items are from gacha machines that can now be found in her main store.

Visit Brewster’s Brew in SecondLife. Pop by and see the yummies!
