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!

I will be joining

Piecrust table? I never knew that's what that design is called. I LIKE it! I like PIE...especially the crust!!!!!! :-) You have really worked hard to get your house decked out for the season! Now, tell me about this billiards room, my dear. Really? I want you to adopt me immediately. My parents won't mind. They don't really like me that much anyway. They just pretend. :-) Holy mackerel, woman! I'm looking at that great fireplace in there, and then I see that fabulous rolling library ladder (is that what it's called?), and I'm all gaga!!!! I have ALWAYS wanted one of those! Sadly, our library ceiling isn't tall enough to warrant one. :-( Great job, my sweet! Have a beautiful weekend!!!

Jewel, all of your mantels are gorgeous! How fun to have so many mantels to decorate. Your pumpkin patch mantel and your pumpkin patch tea table are wonderful. I love your pretty pie crust table, and I love the way that piece of lace just fits, so you can still see the pie crust edge. Those plates from $ General are adorable, and the light from the window does make those glass pumpkins glow. I hope you have a good weekend. laurie
