Changing Fall from Orange to White

I’m not sure why because I LOVE color but I have taken on a new love affair with white and more specifically white pumpkins.

  

This variety is called Blue Plate and it is just as beautiful as it was in early October.  The farmers all told me the white ones wouldn’t keep until early November…the time of our reception.

This apothecary jar is filled with some white glittered pumpkins left from my daughter’s wedding reception.  Some have a fine coating of silver glitter white others I sprinkled with what I call a “sugar coating”.  The glitter was from Martha’s line which I purchased at Michaels…along with the very fine silver.

 

Because I am known as the “Silk Plant Lady” or worse yet seller of “Fake Flowers”, I must tell you these sweet little pumpkins are real.  They were actually free!  The farmer’s wife told us to take any of the mini pumpkins and gourds for no charge!

Have you ever??

I just adore the two little pumpkins perched on top of the vintage pedestals.  Not sure what these were originally used for but I found them for around 50 cents at thrift stores.  Aren’t they adorable with the mini pumpkins?

I love these nesteled in with my creamy white and brown transferware platter and the little Bountiful ceramic sign.

 

I do think the mini pumpkins are starting to turn more yellow but they are at least six weeks old.  They look more white in real life.

Mr. Tom Turkey sits proudly watching over  everything.  He was a TJ Maxx find.

Let’s all enjoy the beauty which is fall for at least another week.

I find I am liking the white pumpkins more myself, Donna. The little ones are my favorite as I like that you can have them on their own {on a pedestal or pillar candle holder} or in a grouping like your apothecary jar or a bowl. I may go with all white next year.

Well Donna, I really believe great minds think alike and we are alike. I'm in love with the white pumpkins too and have a table planned doing just the white. Not sure if I'm going to get it done, I'm leaving again tomorrow. Your vignettes look perfect and I just love the apothecary jar with the glittery pumpkins in it.

Headed sort of your way tomorrow, wish we could stop for a hug.
