The Story of Plush Pumpkins
In the Fall of 2001, Monya’s love of entertaining and desire to create a “wow” Fall table centerpiece for a dinner party, led to her making the first Velvet Pumpkin. The response was so overwhelming that her small hobby of making Velvet Pumpkins with real stems for family and friends launched into her own business. Plush Pumpkin was officially founded in the Fall of 2002.
Thanks to the enthusiasm of all who possess them, Monya’s business has grown from a kitchen table to a large studio space and, from one store, to hundreds throughout the country.
Every stem has a story.
Plush Pumpkin strives for each of Pumpkin to have a unique stem with a distinct beginning middle and, of course, a beautiful ending. Every stem is hand harvested from local farms, preserved, and carefully selected to fit each Pumpkin from tiny to Jumbo with perfect proportion.
Just like real pumpkins, these beautiful velvet pumpkins are unique by virtue of their stems. Each one has a real pumpkin, gourd or squash stem attached. Every pumpkin is handmade in Minnesota and embossed with the PP logo on the bottom.
