Autumn Decorating with Baby Boo Pumpkins
Would you believe I never heard of Baby Boo pumpkins until just last year? It’s true! I saw photos of these adorable white mini pumpkins on a couple of my favorite blogs last Fall and fell head over heels in love with ’em! Fortunately it didn’t take long for me to find where to buy them locally and I immediately began my foray into Autumn decorating with Baby Boo pumpkins!
How can you not love these cute and creamy miniature pumpkins with their curvy green stems?
This little white orb’s proper name is Cucurbita pepo and is edible, but in my opinion; too cute to cook!
Last year, I lined Baby Boos atop my bread box in the kitchen.
Autumn decorating with Baby Boo pumpkins last year also included adding them to each place setting for Thanksgiving.
I think Baby Boo pumpkins fit right in with an elegant Autumn table setting.
They also look sweet in a more casual and natural Fall table setting.
Baby Boo pumpkins nestle perfectly inside a small, white ironstone bowl.
They also pair well with Football Mums. See how easy it is to create Autumn decorating with Baby Boo pumpkins?
Perch a Baby Boo pumpkin atop a Ball mason jar for a bit of whimsy on an Autumn table setting.
This year I stuffed a bunch in a birdcage cloche, layered on top of an aqua colored shutter.
During Fall Home Tour week, I used white Baby Boo pumpkins extensively. They only cost 50 cents each – so not only are they cute and charming, but they’re economical as well.
When I decorate my home, I prefer natural elements. It just feels more organic and homey to me.
I’m not one to paint pumpkins which seems to be quite popular these days. If I need a certain color pumpkin or gourd, I’ll find the right color at the local farmer’s market … like this Blue Moon pumpkin with its beautiful blue-gray hue.
Autumn decorating with Baby Boo pumpkins is simple and easy. Due to their miniature size, they fit almost anywhere!
This year I’ve decided to save some of the seeds from these little beauties and try to grow them in my garden.
What are some of your favorite ways to decorate for Autumn?

I love all your fall decorating Jennifer. I don’t think I ever seen those cute little baby boo’s here in Australia. We have mini squash but not in that off-white colour. I’m wondering if they’d be hard to grow?
I do like baby boos and always buy a bag of them to decorate with. A bag here contains 5 or 6 pumpkins for about $5.00. Your home looks so pretty with the baby boos added to the decor for fall. I hope you have a lovely weekend.
I love those baby boos, too, Jennifer! I never knew about them until I started blogging and ever since I make sure I pick up a few every year. They are such a great size to put anywhere and that’s what I love about them. I put a couple in my whites cabinet in the kitchen and they are the perfect size to sit on top of pillar candle holders. I love them on top of a place setting as you have pictured.
I remember your wonderful tablescape from last year and fell in love with it! your blue shutter this year with all the little baby boos, is so so pretty!!
I have adored boo pumpkins since my Mom gave me one probably 15 yrs ago. She is gone now but I always have a white pumpkin on the porch. Your home looks wonderful with all of them scattered around!
The baby boos are precious. But, more importantly, where did you find that fantastic wooden breadbox. How stunning!
I love these little guys, too, and thanks so much for showing us some neat ways to pop them into our decor!
I love these little white pumpkins too, but just learned their name through blogging. You use the baby boo pumpkins in so many delightful ways.
Love your Baby Boo pumpkins. We never have little plain white ones around here in NJ. I am a fan of white pumpkins. If I can’t find any next year to decorate our new home with I am ordering from the internet somewhere!
Everything is beautifully decorated. Love the baby boos and need to see if any of the stores around here have them.

I love the baby boo’s too. They are just so cute you gotta love them. Your decor is so sweet with adding the baby boos.
I haven’t found any either, but they sure are cute. You have displayed them beautifully!
I found Baby Boo’s today at Trader Joe’s. Love them…
I love these little beauties. I haven’t bought any yet, but will. Yours look lovely tucked in here and there!
I love what seem to be the more exotic pumpkins but they must be easier to grow in some climes as I can never find them no matter where I’ve lived the last ten years. I think I might have seen the white variety was finally starting to make an appearance at some of the pumpkin farms in the northern Colorado area but still no blues.
Stunning! Each picture is just as beautiful as the last. I’m embarassed to say I didn’t know they were called baby boos! Good to know. =)
Whoops embarrassed. =)
Love all your baby Boos Jennifer!
Didn’t take you long to figure out how to do gorgeous things with these! They are so perfect, especially in your home!
Oh.my.word! This is gorgeous!! I’m sharing on my FB page tomorrow 😉
baby boos are the best. Your decor and boos look fab!
J’adore ce baby Boos! Génial! J’adore ces couleurs rafraichissantes!♥
