It’s pumpkin season. Whether you’re looking for table decor or home gifts to give a friend, Baton Rouge shops and makers have plenty of items sure to spice up your Halloween or Thanksgiving holiday display.
Deck your halls with some unique, seasonal items from local shops this season—or get a kickstart on your decor for next year. It’s never too early to plan for the holidays, after all.
Here are a few fun items we spotted around town.
Painted pumpkins by local artist Laura Welch Taylor
Do the typical orange and black of Halloween not match your home aesthetic? Artist Laura Welch Tyler’s painted ceramic pumpkins offer a variety of designs to complement any style and bring a subtle Halloween flair to your living room, mantle or dining table. If you’re not a fan of the bright Halloween colors, you’ll love the pastel blues and pinks and the light gray and black of Taylor’s designs. Some of her pumpkins even double as storage for your favorite Halloween candy or to display a fresh fall bouquet. Find the artist on Instagram.
Table decor and velvet pumpkins from The Keeping Room
The Keeping Room has lots of pieces to elevate your holiday displays, including velvet, glittered and bejeweled pumpkins. If you’re looking for a unique way to dress up your table centerpieces, check out the hand-painted Halloween party hats or decor buckets. Throwing a Halloween or fall-themed party? Look through the stationery to find a design to use for your invitations. The Keeping Room is at 3535 Perkins Road. Find the shop on Instagram.
