For years, Heather Torres, founder of Porch Pumpkins, and her family lived across the street from the Dallas Arboretum. After years of admiring the beautiful displays, she decided to make a business out of pumpkin decor.
With over 12,000 followers, Torres and her husband travel throughout the DFW Metroplex to add a bit of flair to other family’s porches. This year, they have expanded all the way to Houston.
So, how does it work?
The company’s services start at $250 for a porch drop-off and set-up of around 30 pumpkins. Prices can get up to $1,000 for the largest design package which includes a combination of grand prize pumpkins, white pumpkins, specialty pumpkins, etc. If you have a certain pumpkin in mind, Porch Pumpkins is bound to cover it in their vast spreads.
How they’ve grown their business (no pun intended):
Torres took to Instagram, where she reached quite a few influential Dallas bloggers. They then booked her services, inspiring those who follow them to also order some pumpkins. Funny enough, my mom is a customer of Porch Pumpkins and she found this company from one of her favorite Dallas bloggers. This shows how beneficial Instagram is to a small business.
While Porch Pumpkins is sold out for the 2021 season, you can get on their waitlist for next year today!
