When Briana asked about the white pumpkin trend in a recent Defend the Trend post, a whopping 81 percent of you said you loved the look. I’m with the majority here — I adore the elegance a white pumpkin brings to the (Thanksgiving) table. Whether you have leftovers from Halloween or are picking up a few just for Thanksgiving, here are 7 of my favorite ways to use these fall gems.

Turn White Pumpkins Into a Fall Succulent Planter
Pint-sized white pumpkins make an adorable vessel for single succulents. Kelly Smith Trimble from DIY’s Made + Remade blog inspired me to use these as take-home place markers at a recent fall dinner party. She used the adorable succulents as part of this modern tablescape filled with assorted pumpkins, squash and sprigs of eucalyptus.

Designer Camille Styles mixed high-end white elements, like a porcelain soup tureen and creamy-hued roses, with rustic ones like pumpkins, gourds and beeswax candlesticks.  The result? A classic, high-end centerpiece.

If you can’t find a real white pumpkin, go faux. Foam pumpkins are ideal for more intricate designs like this traditional silhouette. Create the design now and use it year after year.

Or, try painting your pumpkin white like HGTVGardens writer Sam Henderson did here. To add the 3-D swirl effect, he piped in silicon caulking, then covered it all in a coat of white spray paint.
