One of the very best parts of fall is getting to decorate with pumpkins. We can all agree on this, yes? 

And guys, we’ve found the best rendition ever: Meet the “pumpkin hurricane.” 

We came across the fabulous DIY on Southern Living and are suddenly feeling inspired to drum up a fall dinner party. Essentially a hurricane lantern placed halfway inside of a pumpkin, we like to think of these creations as sophisticated jack-o’-lanterns...for grown-up ladies. 

Whether sitting on a front porch, illuminating a garden path or providing a focal point on a fall tablescape, seasonal decor really doesn’t get much simpler, or chicer for that matter. 

Here’s how to make your own this weekend: 

Step 1: Buy several short, squat heirloom pumpkins (the streakier and more colorful, the better). 

Step 2: Trace the circular base of a glass vase or hurricane around the pumpkin stem. 

Step 3: Carefully hollow out a cylindrical column. 

Step 4: Place the glass vase inside, followed by a pillar candle of your choice. 

Step 5: Light a match and enjoy the magic.
