From the Pumpkin Patch

This week I welcome you to my Pumpkin Patch tablescape. Sometimes Halloween is all about the scary, but this year I'm feeling a little nostalgia for those sweet and friendly Halloweens from childhood.




So pull up a pumpkin and have a seat! I've enjoyed all the pumpkin plates I've seen the past few years....so last week when I was at Walmart....I picked a few. I had a hard time choosing between the fall leaf plates and these. But in the end....the pumpkins were the ones that made their way into my basket.



And I do believe farmer "Jack" approves!



It seems like this little black cat is the only one scared at this table. Why even the crows aren't scared of farmer Jack!



A crop duster view of the patch.



And it looks like a "bumper crop" of pumpkins. I love the variety of colors we can find now.....I love the traditional orange, of course. But now the greens and whites are such a fun addition. I found a Cinderella pumpkin for my front porch this year. Love the squatty look of them as well as their muted clay color. What's your favorite pumpkin color and shape?



For this table I brought out my bamboo flatware. I know you all are probably getting sick of this black and white checked tablecloth....but I've enjoyed it as my anchor for the past few weeks....I'll move on soon.



Added these pewter goblets with my black and orange napkins.....perfect for the season!



Isn't farmer Jack a friendly fella....from sun up.....




....to sun down.



Guess we'll all just sit here with Linus and wait for The Great Pumpkin to arrive.

Hope everyone has a great Halloween....scary and spooky......or sweet and friendly....however you like it....they're all fun! I'll be joining Susan at "Between Naps on the Porch"....where the tables I find there are always a real "treat".

See ya!

  1. Can't decide which part of this I like the best.
    First, you've used many of my favorite colors and if I had those pretty napkins I'd probably use them 24/7 year round. And those pumpkin plates - too pretty tp actually put food on! LOL. Then when you throw scarecrows and pumpkins into the mix I simply LOVE it all!

  10. Oh, this is darling! I love the black and white check as your background, that darling scarecrow, and the pumpkin plates! It's just as cute as can be, Martha! Great job! And where did you get your placemats? Love them!

    Let's see, what type of pumpkin is my favorite? I love the big, fat squatty orange ones! I know the white ones are popular and probably go best with my decor, but a pumpkin needs to look like the carriage in "Cinderella"! And I much prefer friendly to scary. MUCH prefer.

    XO,

  13. I love the pumpkin plates, and that linen (both tablecloth and napkins) rocks the table.

    But my favorite thing of all is Farmer Jack the centerpiece. I LOVE him!
