In the Dining Room, we have a gold tablecloth and wooden chargers topped with Spode Woodland Turkey plates. I used a new stainless flatware pattern, Williamsburg Shell by Reed and Barton. I used Kirk Steiff pewter goblets and red napkins with woven golden pumpkins.
I also used my pumpkin place card holders but haven't put the place cards in yet!
For my centerpiece, I used my silver punch bowl and filled it with plastic grocery bags and covered them with green Spanish Moss from Michaels. Then I put a large faux pumpkin on top and added some fall leaves. I was inspired by Sheila's idea on her blog, My Kentucky Living.
Then I got the idea to add some lights!
Here's the whole table again with the pumpkin it up.
On the small buffet, I used a silver wine cooler and did the same pumpkin trick!
The hanging shelf above the small buffet is a new piece that I inherited from my mother. I love how it just fits!
Of course, I still have this hanging shelf on the back wall, too!
This is a new pumpkin I painted. It is faux and I painted a Blue Willow type pattern on it with craft paint. It took hours, but I am thrilled with how it turned out.
I made a vignette in my Butler's Pantry featuring the Blue Willow pumpkin.
October is a good month to sit and rock on the porch. There are lots of real pumpkins on the porch!
Before you go, let's have a Pumpkin Tea Party in the Parlor!
I will be sharing with Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
