More Chinoiserie Halloween Ideas

Blue pumpkins

A Chinoiserie Halloween

Eleven Gables

Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine. I thought it would be fun this week to look at some ideas for combining Halloween and Chinoiserie. This is a great one - white pumpkins with blue and white planters and white mums.
