October in White

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT October in WhiteI am very much a traditionalist when it comes to holidays. Christmas is red and green. Halloween is black and orange. But lately, I have been seeing more and more of an unusual color, or unusual to me, showing up in seasonal decor…for fall and even Halloween...and it is white! I am really starting to warm up to it, too! Sooo… I grabbed some great examples of white in October décor, crafts and recipes from The Scoop this week and I am going to share them with you.
