Pumpkin Fireplace

The indian summer has overstayed its welcome. Since we can't start a cozy fire yet, how about this fantastic idea for decorating a fireplace with carved pumpkins resembling fire? This idea came from the October issue of Country Living magazine – check out their website for other great entertaining ideas and recipes.

I'm thinking of recreating this with a series of artificial pumpkins, typically on sale at Michael's (40% - 50% - 60% off!!!) for the rest of the month, and fill in the area around it with fall leaves and maybe some hay. No real candles, of course.
