The moment we have all been waiting for has finally arrived: pumpkin season is here! We know you’re going to taking the cutest pumpkin pics, so we’ve compiled the best pumpkin quotes and puns for the perfect fall Instagram captions.

Pumpkin carving and decorations have been a fall staple for centuries now and continue to keep our homes looking fall-ready.

Today we carve pumpkins and use them as decor as a fun Halloween craft, but in early times, carved pumpkins were actually believed to scare away evil spirits. The pumpkin is also symbolic of prosperity and growth, giving you all the more reason to hit the patch.


Because they are outside, going to a pumpkin patch is one of the few COVID-friendly Halloween activities that you can participate in this year. With most pumpkins costing around five to twenty dollars, they are also a reasonably priced activity that everyone in your squash, I mean squad, can enjoy.

Grab your pumpkin spice latte, put on your flannel, and pick out the best pumpkin quotes for your pics.
