They are Gourds. Some one may prove me wrong but I think they are primarily ornamental.......

Concur, they appear to be ornamental gourds, which are squash (C. pepo). Usually bitter as summer squash, dry and pithy when mature. The orange and green one may be a winter squash.

Those are just for fall and winter decor. I wouldn't eat them.

The orange and green one looks like an Acorn squash. Very tasty when roasted. I agree the others look like ornamentals.
