I liked #23 for the bright,rich colors of fall, with #17 as a close second. I would add a few ideas of #17, like the 3 pumpkins across the center, and maybe the banner (or add a few Halloween items and then put the be thankful blocks up 11/1)… I am probably old fashion, but already tired of white pumpkins.
