Have you been seeing the white pumpkins everywhere online this year, for fall and Thanksgiving decorating? You can get naturally white ones at the pumpkin patch. Or you can paint real or faux pumpkins.
I picked up faux pumpkins on sale at Michaels, and I’m going to paint them white for this year’s fall decorating in our house. So I surfed around for ideas of how to use them. I needed inspiration help because there’s not much white in our home!
Of course pumpkins are often used for autumn table décor, and this one is a graceful quiet accent to these layered plates which are the star of the show here. Arrangement and image from Sweet Paul:
This is a fun, fresh and light alternative to the usual autumn and Thanksgiving table decorations, from Centsational Girl:
I like how the pumpkins look piled in this large rustic platter and accented with a dash of yellow. Bright and happy. From Craftberry Bush:
Look around outside for fall flowers and leaves – that’s what they did for the centerpiece above, and that’s also what I do around my home. Don’t overlook the “dead” plants either – there’s a lot of interesting seedpods in fall gardens.
While I shopped for smaller fake pumpkins on sale at Michaels, I was envisioning doing something like this centerpiece – pumpkins on an aged wood plank, mixed with autumn leaves, acorns, pinecones. This pretty fall centerpiece is by Sophia’s Décor:
Oh but there’s more. See the side view:
It looks like a centerpiece for a very happy home, doesn’t it?
If you have windowboxes, don’t forget them. Fall is a great time to decorate them. Because without all the competition of summer foliage and flowers, the flowerboxes can become the focal points. It looks like black mondo grass and bittersweet are mixed in with the white pumpkins here. Just a bit of garden drama. From Cottage Living:
Here they are displayed on … can you guess what they are? Old bedsprings! Love the repurposing of old things in unexpected ways. From A Cottage Muse:
I really like the pumpkins displayed in urns. Here’s a lively design from Common Ground:
And another design by Heather Bullard. You can see even pumpkins in urns can have a lot of variations in how they look:
I hope this trip through the white pumpkin patch gave you some new ideas for decorating this fall and for Thanksgiving! As if this were not enough, I’ve collected more images for you on a Pinterest board, White Pumpkins.
