Even if you compost your pumpkins to save waste, it can be more economical to decorate with faux pumpkins so you don’t have to buy new ones every year. One of my favorite types of pumpkins are the cute little white baby boos.
One year I piled a bunch of them into a cloche and used it as a center piece for my dining table.
But mostly I scatter them here and there in autumn vignettes.
I tend to like white pumpkins best but the orange, yellow, and gray ones are all pretty too. I don’t paint them or add jewels like some people do, but I did enjoy winding grapevines around some of them a few years ago.
You can find a variety of faux pumpkins out there. Fabric, resin, ceramic, glass – take your pic. The styles run from a bit glamourous to common field pumpkins. Most aren’t very expensive, especially when you consider that you can use them year after year. Shop the boutique below and click on photos to see where to find them.
