Stacks of Pumpkins :: The White House

I adore pumpkins and . . . I adore stacks.
I've even written about my love
of stacks of books and luggage - here & here & here.

So, it will come as no surprise that I was delighted to find the White House
had covered the north lawn and portico with glorious stacks of gourds,
pumpkins and squash for their Halloween event.

So simple - so effective.

Of course, I'm trying to figure out the method for keeping all those
pumpkins standing so tall. I'm thinking . . . cut off top stems and treat
the entire stack like a big shish kabob. Your thoughts . . ?

Stacks are your thing.... Must be some skewer type of thing and/or a lot of hot glue/rubber cement. LOL!
