Fall Fun at Hatcher’s Greenhouse: Beautiful Outdoor Pumpkins and Flowers Display Ideas

Fall Decorting with pumpkins and gourds fall decorating ideas



Happy fall everyone! Are you in the mood for pumpkins??? If so then this is the post for you! On Friday I had a day off from teaching so I woke up early to do a little junkin.’ On my way to my favorite Habitat Restore I drove past Hatcher’s Greenhouse… and it was like being in a fall dream! I couldn’t believe what I was seeing through the fence…pumpkins and mums and pansies for days!



Hatcher’s is a local greenhouse in Chesapeake, Ohio ( about 20 minutes away from my house, just across the Ohio River bridge from Kentucky.)




I have been shopping at Hatcher’s for all of my spring and summer plants for over a decade. The owner’s elegant and creative plant displays and the overall plant selection is second to none, but for some reason I never knew Hatcher’s was the IT place for fall too! 



I have always thought that they closed down after Labor Day…boy was I wrong! As it turns out, fall is THE most wonderful time of the year at Hatcher’s!




I could get really wordy with this post since I am a fall and pumpkin (and gardening) fanatic, but I don’t think there is much of a need. The pictures speak for themselves!










Totally GOURD-GEOUS! (I couldn’t resist!)


Ok I just have to comment on all of the fabulous fall displays! Just look at all of those amazing heirloom pumpkin varieties!


Gimme all the Flat Boer pumpkins (those are the flattened white ones)…and that rustic cart…be still my heart!

White Pumpkin Varieties


I am so crazy about pumpkins that I have spent the last few years trying to memorize the different types, especially the French Heirloom pumpkins and gourds.





Green is my favorite color, so I am partial to any pumpkins with green tones, and the lumpier the better!


HI friends. I wanted to do something different today & use this platform to do something really important. My mind has been so consumed with praying and thinking of Lindsey Letter's family and her beautiful daughter, Eva Love, after she suffered an accident. We are praying so hard for this family right now and hope you can join us in doing the same. The family of Eva Love is asking those following their journey to pray from Monday (the 30th) until Wedn Farmhouse Fall

I just love how Liz Marie displayed these lumpy green beauties! I digress…I am getting too excited about decorating with pumpkins! Back to my post…



This display might have been my favorite of the day. I love all the colors and textures! A lumpy Musquee De Provence pumpkin with peach, green, and frosty blue tones (like the ones in the left corner) is always my #1  pick of the pumpkin patch!



Need inspiration for the weekend? We've listed our favorite four fall activities to enjoy before the season changes. Read more on the blog!

I ended up snatching up the Musquee De Provence with the longest stem (bottom left corner). 



When I got home I displayed it on my patio table with a few gourds and a colorful vintage pheasant that I scored the same day at Habitat Restore.  I love junk-n-pumpkins!



Isn’t this chippy- shabby white bench so perfect piled with pumpkins?! I want it (and the pumpkins too!)



Don’t you just love the pumpkin season? At the nurseries and local farmers you can find a variety of pumpkins to use as decorations in and around the house. They come in so many colours and s…

I am also partial to cool-toned fall container designs.

Simple purple pansies in a galvanized bucket just pop right out against a backdrop of  Rouge Vif D’Etampes (“vivid red”) pumpkins. My French-loving fall heart can’t get enough!






Of course there’s amazing traditional fall fun displays at Hatcher’s too. These creative hay horses are the owner’s original design! 












There’s just enough light-hearted Halloween here and there to keep things festive and fun for the kids.









The pumpkin extravaganza continues on over into the magical cottage property adjacent to the greenhouse.







I had such a fun time at Hatcher’s and I hope you enjoyed your “virtual visit” too.  If you are ever in the southern Ohio area nd you love all things gardening, then you simply must plan to visit Hatcher’s!





I picked out a few pumpkins and pansies during my visit that I am styling outdoors this weekend, and I will share some photos on Monday, October 5th for the “World of Octobers” Blog Hop hosted by My Thrift Store Addiction.



If you can’t get enough of pumpkins, pansies and mums (oh my!) I do hope you will stop back for a visit tomorrow. There are sure to be tons of ideas to inspire your fall outdoor decor!
