I think I’ve shared with you before that I never really decorated much for Halloween, mostly because I am not a huge fan of orange. But once those adorable little white pumpkins became available a few years ago, and stores started carrying all kinds of Halloween decor in black mixed with silver or white, I definitely got more into it!
For the most part, I usually only decorate for Halloween outside. Well, until last year, that is. It all started when I purchased the cutest Halloween plates on sale from Williams Sonoma! I fell in love with them, and used them in last year’s Halloween tablescape. And because that was so fun, and also because I wanted to use them again, I decided to do another one this year.
I absolutely adore white pumpkins! I’m sure this comes as no surprise, seeing as how I love white everything! 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 😉
I don’t know about any of you, but I certainly never saw white pumpkins when I was growing up! I think one of the reasons I was not big on decorating for fall and/or Halloween for the longest time was the whole orange pumpkin thing.
It just didn’t mesh with my colors or my decor and so, although fall is my absolute favorite season, I really didn’t put out that much or buy very many pumpkins. The orange was just a disaster with all the blues and greens in my house, and really bad with the reds in my family room!
