White pumpkins are all the rage in decorating. I have one question. When did these things appear? Growing up I never saw a white pumpkin…every pumpkin I ever saw was orange. Yes that’s it, orange.
Charlie Brown movies are my favorites, especially It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. I still watch that movie every Halloween and relive a bit of my childhood. It’s about orange pumpkins. ORANGE.
Orange is totally out of style, I guess, giving way to white, green, and turquoise. These albino pumpkins with natural white skin are bred by pumpkin growers, and the seeds for specific varieties, such as Lumina, Cotton Candy or miniature Baby Boo, can be purchased and planted.
When our photo-stylists decorate with white pumpkins, I just love them. There is something so refreshing about using them in arrangements with bittersweet. What a great combination. So, I am moving into the current century and embracing this love for white pumpkins.
Try using them in your decorating! They will bring a new look to your home. Find more beautiful seasonal inspirations in our Southern Lady Southern Settings issue.
