When it comes to autumn- I am a natural girl over here.
Pumpkins and flowers and wheat and freshly fallen leaves… and mostly in a neutral palette.
Orange pumpkins? Maybe just a touch outdoors.
But white and soft faded colored pumpkins? On repeat again and again.
I haven’t found any pumpkins yet this year- so today I am into the archives and I am sharing 10 simple ways to decorate with white pumpkins.
A simple seasonal display for the mantel- gomphrena and dried peonies topped with white pumpkins. Add an antique gold mirror to play off the warmth.
Carving out a pumpkin and tucking some flowers into it for a table centerpiece? Why not? And it is so easy to do.
Cabbages and pumpkins on the table
Big cabbages are always charming for fall displays. Place a large one in an urn or pot and gather a few baby boos around for a simple seasonal touch.
Sedum centerpiece with pumpkins
Simply stack white pumpkins and a few grays if you would like- around a pretty sedum- which has the perfect colors for a natural autumn look.
Just a touch
I have been known to tuck a touch of autumn into every room- even the bathroom.
Just a couple baby boos with flowers is a sweet touch.
In the cupboard
Open cupboards, shelves and more- a gathering of white pumpkins and a few seasonal flowers on the shelf is a simple way of saying ‘autumn’ without overwhelming the space.
A dough bowl full
Gather up a few fresh or faux magnolia branches and top them with pumpkins and call it good.
A simple, easy seasonal display in minutes.
Because blush roses and eucalyptus are perfect with white pumpkins.
On the mantel with copper
Copper mixes beautifully with the warm tones from dried roses and sage green eucalyptus, acorns and white pumpkins.
Gathered in a crate
So simple- grab a vintage wood crate, add a few sprigs of hydrangea and white berries and fill it with pumpkins. It is one of my go-to decorations every year for simple autumn.
Several of these autumn ideas are in my book as well. We included autumn and Christmas decor along with a few ideas for celebrating birthdays in those pages.
I am off to do a little bit of work in the cottage today and coming your way tomorrow- simple early autumn touches in the kitchen- including one of those vintage finds from Las Vegas Market
that just arrived.
Happy Tuesday that feels like a Monday everyone.
