Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins!


We have had the most beautiful week weatherwise that I can remember. Sunny, warm, cloudless days. I wish it would stay like this forever!

As I was going through the linens I noticed a tablecloth covered in pumpkins, leaves and acorns, just the right one for this week's Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch. For more inspiring tables just click on the link, sit back and enjoy.

To the tablecloth I have added dark green fringed napkins. The flatware is Oneida Afterglow, circa 1956.



The dinner plate is a solid white (Homer Laughlin White Dover), layered with a solid orange salad plate (Waechtersbach Orange Peel), an orange pumpkin dessert plate and then a small pumpkin soup bowl. Both are from the Better Homes and Garden Fall Collection.



The glassware is just an orange stem I found in a small antique shop in Topeka last spring. I don't know the pattern or maker.


I am using the mini white pumpkins again this week for the centerpiece. They are piled onto a white compote from TJMaxx. They are so cute, but will not last as long as I would like, so I will be getting mileage from them! I have added dried fruit and flower pods. The candlesticks, little ceramic pumpkins paired with orange tapers.




Rimshot!






Thanks for taking the time to visit In The Middle Of Nowhere. Hope to see you here again next time...in the meantime, have a great week!

I am totally loving this table Marigene!! The orange and green together are so lively -- so many times oranges are only paired with browns -- I prefer the greens :)

Blessings!

I love the pumpkin dessert plates the best! Too cool! Second would have to be the pumpkin bowls. I just love this time of the year. I feel the temperatures here in Arizona dropping just by looking at your table Marigene. Thanks.

Such a fun tablecloth, and it certainly is perfect for this fun pumpkin table. Your orange goblets are just amazing. They really make a statement!

Alycia Nichols said...

I LOVE the orange stemware! I'm on my way to your house right now to pick it up! ;-) That is really pretty...very unique! Perfect for many months of the year! The weather HAS been great, hasn't it?!??!!! No rain, though, for nearly a month. That's not good for the crops. (Who do I think I am? Mr. Green Jeans????) I hate having to run the sprinkler system, but we've had to for several days now. I won't complain, though. LOVIN' IT!!!!!! You mentioned Topeka. I have cousins in Topeka, other relatives in Sabetha, Bern, Oneida and Hiawatha. Used to go up to Topeka every summer for a family reunion when I was a kid!
