How to Decorate with Pumpkins for Fall:
Whether you prefer white pumpkins (my favorite ), or traditional orange pumpkins, here are a few ideas to inspire you!
White Pumpkin Decorating Inspiration:
If you’re someone who dislikes the color orange in your home, white pumpkins are for you.
Obviously, their neutral color works with any home style and color scheme. Every year, I use white pumpkins in my seasonal vignettes. For instance, here is one of my 3 ways to decorate a bar cart for fall.
By using seasonal items like mums and white pumpkins, you can bring the outside in. Though this was one of my favorites, be sure to see the other ways I’ve decorated with white pumpkins!
Recently, I shared my fall home tour where I included a few faux white pumpkins in my fall vignettes…
Don’t you just love the velvety texture of that pumpkin? I believe that was a Homegoods find! If you don’t have a Homegoods store near year, definitely check out their website. Besides the fabric pumpkins, they also have a bunch of woven pumpkins in seagrass and other natural textures.
Orange Pumpkin Decorating Ideas:
Even though I love white pumpkins, I always decorate with a few classic orange pumpkins as well.
For the past few years, I’ve lined up orange baby boo pumpkins across the ledge above my front door. Every morning, it’s nice to catch a glimpse of them as I walk down the stairs. If you want to see how the mini pumpkins and the whole porch looks from the outside, check out my simple porch decor.
When I decorate for fall, I like to carry the same colors throughout my spaces. On my family room console table, I mixed in a bit of orange and then continued with a few splashes of orange in the kitchen.
Whether you’re a fan of white pumpkins or orange pumpkins, here are a few more ways to decorate with either color…
Decorate a Fall Table with Pumpkins:
Greet your dinner guests with a few festive pumpkins this fall…
One year, I decorated with orange pumpkins on my dining room table.
Besides using pumpkins on the table setting, I also carried them over to my buffet table and bar cart. In fact, I even included some cute DIY painted pumpkins on my bar cart. For those pumpkin details, read – Blue and White Painted Pumpkins.
For this fall table setting, I mixed white pumpkins with apples for an autumn harvest vibe.
And while we’re talking about white pumpkins and apples…
Decorate a Mantel with White Pumpkins and Apples:
Rather than use orange pumpkins, go with white to let the red apples stand out…
Here’s one of my favorite fall mantels:

Decorate with Pumpkins in Your Outdoor Living Spaces:
Who says pumpkins have to stay on the front porch?
Before winter arrives, decorate your cozy outdoor spaces. While there’s still time, enjoy your time outdoors.
Pumpkin Shopping Ideas:
Obviously, it’s pretty easy to find pumpkins this time of year! Just go to your local farm stand or grocery store and buy some! Lol…
Although, if you’re looking for some faux pumpkins or pumpkin accessories for your home, here are some ideas!
Instead of buying fresh pumpkins, these realistic faux pumpkins will last from year to year!
For some variety, simply mix in a few of these on your front porch.
Over the years, even the craft stores have started selling some very realistic faux pumpkins. For instance, this pumpkin is a great color and shape…and is super-inexpensive!
If you want to make your pumpkin cakes or breads extra special, this cakelet plan would be perfect!
If you stack a bunch of the pumpkin cakes on a tiered tray, your desserts can become part of your fall decor!
