Tea Time in my "Pumpkin Patch"

The table I usually spotlight in this blog is my dining room table. Today I am going to feature my parlor tea table. Every Fall the mantle in my parlor is covered with pumpkins, ceramic, plastic, glittered, plain, big and small. I jokingly call it my "Pumpkin Patch" - so today is Tea Time in my "Pumpkin Patch!"

The piecrust table sits in the bay window of my parlor and is covered with a round lace tablecloth. I have several glass pumpkins that I have been given or have bought through the years and I love how the light coming from the window lights up the pumpkins. I have a pumpkin tea set that I got from Cracker Barrel years ago. And at each place is a pumpkin plate and a pumpkin mug from Dollar General a few years ago. I then scattered silk leaves and acrylic leaf "jewels" all around.
Here is the "Pumpkin Patch!"

Speaking of mantles, I showed my dining room mantle last week. My theme was metallics: copper, silver and gold.

Here is the mantle in our library/study. Can you tell it's my husband's room? All he would let me do to the mantle was add the leaves. I did put a few turkeys around the room also!

My last mantle is in the billiards room and it is my favorite. I went with a pheasant theme.

I love how this little pumpkin glows at night!
