White is the New Orange


They say orange is the new black but when it comes to pumpkins, we say white is the new orange! White pumpkins, once a novelty, are becoming increasingly common, and these captivating white orbs are all the rage when it comes to stylish fall decorating. They provide great contrast in fall gourd and pumpkin displays and add elegance to seasonal tablescapes. Casperitas have strong green handles and hold their color both on and off the vine. They're especially great for painting and monogramming for a personal touch. Casperitas can also be substituted for orange pumpkins in many recipes. Whether you're baking pumpkin pie or making a pumpkin soup, try the Casperita. Natural or painted, the versatility of these little pumpkins make them a must-have accent for all your fall decorating.
