Happy Pumpkin Gathering

Hello everyone!
             Join me and my new friend for dinner!
My husband saw me eyeing this figurine and a matching 
piece at a store last Saturday (Sweetest Day)
After we had dined we went for a walk in
our little downtown area of
Traverse City 
and stopped in at a little gift shop...when 
he offered to buy them  for me I quickly 
said yes! We both got a kick out of his 
little stick legs !
My centerpiece includes my new decorated
pumpkin I showed in a previous post here.
By the way  
I'm serving up some Warm Cider,
 and Pumpkin Pie
 I forgot
the main dish
a Turkey Casserole
with some hearty crusted white bread!
The table is dressed with a simple floor
length table cloth and topped with 
a square black netting piece
The flatware is grouped together
with the napkin and wrapped
with a purple wired ribbon
decorated with bats!
I layered the dishes on the
plum colored round placemats
from T.J. Maxx where I also
found the cute purple glasses!
I found these pumpkin plates at
Michaels-I thought they were so
cute and happy!
 This is one of four dessert plates
made by Rosanna- I chose them 
to give the pumpkin a little framework!
The dinner plate is part of a set made by
CMG, called Brasserie and I got it from 
Neiman Marcus (they will make a good 
basic for many other table settings)!
 I turned a votive upside down
and perched this little
guy on it
 I snipped off some of my mums
from outdoors to put in this
matching votive
I used my spider candles with my
mercury glass candlesticks
As you can see I have quite a gathering
of pumpkins in my house! Way out there
on the mantel are some and my previous
blog posting here shows my corner
table has many more!
 I believe we are all set dine now! 
Well thanks for checking out my tablescape
and I hope you enjoyed it!

  5. OK, now seriously...that little dude looks JUST LIKE ME!!! The little stick legs and the big, round body...it's ME to a T!!!!!!! I don't remember posing for that, though, so I think someone owes me some royalties! :-) What a fun addition to the table! LOVE those purple glasses. It is SO weird how different stores have different things. I've cruised through the local ones, and nothing like that at all. I really, really like the design on those. The black netting is grrrrr-rrreat!!!!
