Make your apartment gourd-geous this Fall

Fall has arrived and the only thing that’s missing is a touch of autumn inside your Welland apartment. For today’s post, the Panoramic Properties blog team is here to help with a few gourd-geous decoration ideas to share.


Find Your Gourd


To begin, you will need to find the perfect gourd or gourds to decorate. Start by reading this helpful online guide on how to choose the best pumpkin. After you have decided what exactly you are looking for, a great place to go for a beautiful gourd is a pumpkin farm. There are many local pumpkin farms to choose from in the Niagara Valley area. For a nearby option, check out Warner Ranch and Pumpkin Farm (7705 Schisler Road). This two-hundred-acre ranch grows and sells pumpkins and gourds of every size and colour. The farm is open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily and admission is free. On the weekends, top your pumpkin shopping off with a horse-drawn hayride. Warner Ranch and Pumpkin Farm is less than a ten-minute drive from Concorde Place (155 Hagar Street).


Gourd Crafts


A simple do-it-yourself activity is the best way to make a gourd-geous decoration. One unique option is to mod podge your pumpkins and then add strips of fabric for a finishing touch. Another fun idea is to use your pumpkin to make a candy dish perfect for holding your Halloween treats. If you prefer a more traditional project, follow these simple tips for painting or carving your gourds. You may be able to find many of the supplies you need for your project at the locally owned Stamplicity (14 Clarence Street). This craft store is just over a fifteen-minute drive from this Panoramic Properties location (155 Hagar Street). Stamplicity is open from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday through Thursday, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday and from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday. The store is closed on Sunday and Monday.


Fall is a beautiful season. Panoramic Properties hopes today’s blog post helps you incorporate some of autumn’s beauty into your Welland apartment with a gourd-geous addition such as a carved pumpkin or candy dish. For more information about our Welland location, visit our website today.
