But I am especially smitten with these. I don’t know about you, but they definitely weren’t around when I was growing up. There were plain old orange ones and that was it!

And let’s face it, there aren’t a lot of houses where bright orange decor really works 😉

The best part about the white pumpkins is that they let you decorate for a holiday season, and yet do it in a neutral way. They can work in any house, with any color scheme.

They look wonderful paired with natural elements, but they also work with silver, gold, or even rusty iron.

And they’re especially beautiful paired with other pale heirloom pumpkins in faded pinks or greens.

I started looking for white pumpkins earlier this week and didn’t find any at first, but yesterday I scored! Mini white pumpkins – yay!

I’ve only just started with the few mini ones I bought yesterday, but I do love having them around. Those, combined with my pumpkin candles burning 24/7, is making it feel a little like fall around here….

I love to use the real white pumpkins where I can, both the mini boos and the larger ones, but sometimes faux is needed for various reasons. And now there are so many great faux versions out there!

You can also use the faux if real aren’t out yet, and then swap them out for the real versions once they become available. Another idea: buy an inexpensive orange one from Target or Walmart and paint them!

  1. I love them as well. Last year I found them at Whole Foods, but not this year…still waiting!

    1. Yes, me too! I did find a few little white ones at a local farm, but they are way more expensive than the grocery store. I’m still waiting on those!


  2. I love every one of these looks. Here in TX, we won’t get pumpkins for at least another month. Total bummer. I’m super ready for fall and cooler temps.

    1. Thank you so much Cindy! And I’m ready too! It will probably stay warm here through October, but that doesn’t stop me, lol!

      I appreciate you stopping by – and wishing you some cooler temps soon!


  3. I love white pumpkins too. I have painted faux white and they look great especially using old white chalk paint.

    How true, orange was it when we were kids.

    I’m using white with velvet this year. Colors that work with our decor. I burn candles all day long too.

    I use soft green and peach outdoors. Finding Cindarella pumpkins here is impossible.

    I haven’t posted been getting signs finished for my shop. Haven’t quite figured out posting, shop, dogs, cleaning and working out every day yet.

    Enjoy your weekend

    1. I’m so glad you love them too – they’re the best aren’t they?!

      And yes, I agree with you on the work/life balance thing! Blogging can take up a lot of time, and it’s not always easy to fit it all in!

      Thanks so much for stopping by!


  4. I bet! I was lucky I found them! Yesterday I went to two different markets and none of them had any yet at all! Guess I will have to trek back to the one where I first found them!

    Happy Sunday Shannon!


  5. Growing them would be ideal!! Do you know Emily of Eleven Gables? She grows the big white ones and she just posted photos on IG of them and they are so great! I'm slightly jealous:))

    So glad you loved the post! Thanks so much for reading, and for taking the time to comment! I really appreciate it.


  6. Aren't they the best Shelley? I love them! And even in the CA heat, I put pumpkins outside for months and they never rot! Usually when I throw them out the day after Thanksgiving, I feel bad because they are still in such good shape! Only in the 70s here today – wish it would stay that way:))

    Happy Weekend friend!


  7. Wonderful pics………enjoyed them so much. I love the white boo pumpkins, but we don't get any of them around
    here (Florida) until almost Thanksgiving………I keep trying to talk my son into growing me some……
    Thanks for sharing all this eye candy and inspiration,
    Blessings, Nellie

  8. I am a huge fan of white pumpkins as well although I haven't bought any yet. It's going to be 90 degrees again today so they would probably rot if I put them outside. I have been thinking of adding them to my urns like in the Thistlewood photo above. I love all your pretty examples and the Tone on Tone example is just perfection. Your vignette is gorgeous with the cloche…such a classic look! Enjoy your weekend!
