For her front porch DIY, the actor placed cornstalks on either side of her cerulean-hued door and shrubbery-like florals near the welcome mat, but it’s the myriad of pumpkins (which she stacked on top of one another for extra height) that pack the biggest punch. Below, we map out Witherspoon’s go-to picks so you can try her look on your own porch. 


Known for its miniature size, this pumpkin grows increasingly orange as it ripens, making it the ideal natural countdown to Halloween. And according to Martha Stewart, it is ideal for individual table settings and small spaces. 

Rouge Vif D’Etampes

You’ll notice this French favorite as the flat base for Witherspoon’s gourd stacks. If you’re getting into fall recipes, it’s also often found in soup stocks. 

Baby Boo 

For those who shudder at Halloween’s classic orange and black palette, there is the Baby Boo, the most common type of white pumpkin. Beyond the cute name and light exterior, it can be recognized by its long stem.
