White Pumpkins For Fall Decorating
I realize it’s a little early for dragging the Fall decorations out, but if you live in Florida by the time September rolls around you are more than ready for Fall to arrive . . . . if only in your dreams. I wasn’t always a Floridian. No, I grew up in Southern Maryland where the change in season was something you eagerly looked forward to when the calendar advanced to September. The cooler temperatures, changing color of the leaves, hay rides, bonfires and of course, pumpkin carving.
Living in Florida is different. The leaves don’t change and our cooler weather doesn’t usually arrive until December if we’re lucky. And, you don’t dare carve a real pumpkin because it will rot before Halloween even arrives. But, we still decorate for Fall to remind ourselves that the season is changing even if Mother Nature hasn’t acknowledged the fact.

I am obsessed with white pumpkins this season. I think they became popular a couple of years ago, but I didn’t really pay much attention to them till I started seeing all the beautiful photos on Pinterest. They really are quite beautiful and can be used in both formal, elegant displays and more traditional rustic arrangements.

Grab a shabby chic white chair and add pumpkins ~ perfect for your front porch.
I’m particularly fond of using an urn for your pumpkin display. What a lovely centerpiece this makes.
