It’s the Great “PINK” Pumpkin Charlie Brown

Okay, I’ll admit it.  I like pink!  Let me rephrase that….I LOVE PINK!

Browsing the Internet one day looking for Halloween costumes, I came across a photo of a pink pumpkin.  Not a pumpkin that was painted pink, not a pumpkin that was covered with pink glitter, but a pumpkin that came out of the earth……PINK!  As if mother nature gave me a sweet little fall gift.  Don’t believe me, take a look for yourself.

Upon further investigation I found out that the pink pumpkin, also known as the “porcelain doll” pumpkin (how precious!) was discovered by accident.  A farmer from Colorado spotted a pumpkin with a light pink hue and spent five years cultivating it.  They have a light pink skin with a vibrant orange interior and today, farmers across the globe are growing these delightful beauties.  In 2012, the organization “Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation” was founded.  Through the organization, many of America’s pumpkin growers have committed to giving a percentage of proceeds from every pink pumpkin to organizations involved in breast cancer research.  How wonderful!

Not sure if pink pumpkins are for you?  Well the following photo should change your mind (hopefully).

Still not convinced?  It’s okay, I won’t twist your arm, sometimes it’s difficult for us to break away from tradition.  But if you do like what you see and want to add some of these pink beauties to your Halloween decor, I say go for it, because to me, life is simply too short……add a pink pumpkin to the mix!.

Here is some inspiration to get you going (note: actual “porcelain doll” pumpkin not required).
