No more carving tools and messy pumpkin guts. Forget the slew of stencil carved pumpkins or the hundreds of smiling jack-o-lanterns and arched-back black cats. Here’s a sophisticated and stylish idea for your Halloween pumpkins that will set them apart from those peppering the stoops of every suburban neighborhood.

It’s no surprise that Alissa is a residential and commercial designer. She was even an HGTV Design Star semi-finalist in 2009.

Using her grandmother’s Blue Willow China (shown below) as an inspiration, Alissa simply painted bought white pumpkins (not hard to find) and drew upon them with a royal blue Sharpie marker.

The results looks terrific, especially when paired with her Blue Willow vases and cachepots and her sweet little white dog, Valentina.
