Does Your Faux Pumpkin Need a Stem?


I wanted to share a couple of fun ideas today for a stem to put in your faux pumpkin.



I created a neutral fall tablescape today and thought it would be fun to use a silver knife for a pumpkin stem......


In this tablesetting,  I used a milk glass vase for my pumpkin stem.....


This is the fourth tablescape I have done by changing out a few things in the existing centerpiece.


I chose simple white ironstone,  white place mats and white napkins  for each place setting


I borrowed things from vignettes around the house and will put them back after dinner.    The metallic fall letters came from the hallway.....the neutral faux pumpkins were under the fall tree......the antlers were above the mantle on the front porch,  the candlesticks were on the chesser in the master bedroom......you get the idea....lol!


I added a wire crown to the top of my existing centerpiece.....


Now for a short tour around the recycled centerpiece......




The big farm style table is really nice when all the family is here to eat,   but for tonight ......a romantic dinner for two!


Please visit my side bar to see "Where I Party"  and stop by and visit a few of these great blogs!
