Decorate with White Pumpkins

white pumpkins

When it comes to Fall decorating, I have one very specific love….white pumpkins.  Every year, I anticipate the arrival of these darling little gourds and I can’t wait to find them!  I just love them; it’s like inviting the sophisticated sister of the orange pumpkin into my home.  You can fill a basket full of them, stack them on top of silver candlesticks….if you walk into my house on any given day during the Fall, you will find a large, green bowl full of them on my dining room table.

White pumpkins read “Fall” more than they read “Halloween”.  Their shelf life is much longer, in my opinion….and it’s a great way to incorporate some Fall decorations into your home or party during September and October (when you just aren’t quite ready to pull out the Halloween decorations!).

Do any of you have a creative use for white pumpkins?!  Please, do share!

  • I bought white pumpkins yesterday! I’m hosting a dinner party in a few weeks and I can’t wait to decorate with my whit pumpkins!!

  • First of all, I just stumbled upon your blog….it’s adorable! And I love this post for white pumpkins! I am not a big holiday decorator, but I will definitely try and find these and put them in my home this year! Thank you :)

  • I agree 100%!! They are so classy!!

    You could cut out the middle and insert a tea light candle for fun, fall decor by day and romantic light by night!

    You could use them as place cards next to your table setting by writing each guests name in black marker on the pumpkin in a fun font. Might be a little hard, but a stencil might help!

  • Love your blog and LOVE this idea! I just read an article a few days ago about painting your pumpkins for the holidays. I cannot wait to try some black stripes on these white ones! Thanks for the inspiration… otherwise I may have just stuck w/ the orange ones:)

  • I linked this to my blog yesterday, enjoy:)

    Where can you find white pumpkins? I don’t think I ever seen any in the grocery store. And, if you know, how much do they usually run? I look for fall wedding ideas, and I LOVE the idea of white pumpkins.

    Beautiful! Where did you find the long wooden tray? I have been looking for one just like that with no luck.
