Glammed Up Gourds: Good for the Holidays

Home Decor: Meadow Brooke Gourds are grown at the "roots of the Blue Mountain in central Pennsylvania." The family farm produces nothing but gourds and then decks them out with details and even lights them up before sending them to homes around the country.

The farm has been in the family for centuries, but for ten years, the farm has been filled with nothing but gourds. Gourds have become a local institution and Meadowbrooke encourages others to raise and grow and decorate their own gourd creations.

Each season brings a new addition to the gourd décor group and each month brings a specially designed gourd. For the holidays, there's a winter wonderland family of gourds, all decked out as friendly snowpeople. You can also find other special gourds, from candy dishes to ornaments.

Meadowbrooke gourds are great for the holidays, whether you're hosting a party and want a special centerpiece, or need a hostess gift. Gourds are good year round, as everything from birdfeeders to gifts.
