  1. Pumpkin Spice Chocolates from Sucre
  2. Pumpkin Spice Tiramisu from Gracious Bakery Nola
  3. Pumpkin Bubble Bar from Lush Cosmetics
  4. Pumpkin Spice Beignet from The Vintage Nola
  5. Pumpkin Spice Latte from Willa Jean (with Vodka) 
  6. Pumpkin Mandelic Peel from Esthetic Facial Spa
  7. Pumpkin Pedicures from Southern Swings Nail Bar & Spa
