{loving} decorating with lumina pumpkins

I love a traditional orange pumpkin, the beautiful orange orbs adorn my house inside and out every year. But when I want a spooky, ethereal look to my decor I go for the lumina. Gorgeous white, sometimes with a soft tinge of blue-grey, beautiful in that mystical moonlight kind of way.

There are so many ways you can decorate with the beautiful white lumina. Here are a handful of my favorites from around the web. 

A little black paint is all it takes to create a spooky tableau.

A simple nod to a well-known Halloween story sets the mood for the evening.

I love the simplicity of leaving them as-is and just placing them around the house.

Add some black grasses and bittersweet to create a lovely centerpiece like the ones I made last year for a fall wedding.

Are you going to get crafty and decorate with lumina pumpkins this year?

    We purchased some pumpkins this year at our farmers market that are out of the ordinary. Bought a large “goose neck”? gourd, some greenish grey squatty looking pumpkins and a white one as you mentioned above. Cool stuff! BTW – Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hi Nicole!

    I LOVE gooseneck gourds! Especially all dried and brown and rustic. I have a couple dried ones I need to polish up so I can put them out. So many cool pumpkins and gourds aren’t there? And so many of them are yummy to eat! Many thanks, it was such a lovely Thanksgiving. Enjoying the bounty of left-overs in my fridge 🙂

    Hi Sarah!
    They are just lovely! We filled the wedding last year with nothing but luminas and it was stunning! If you go to any large pumpkin farm, they will most likely have a good selection of lumina’s, blue hubbards, grey ghosts and similiar squash.
