Metallics and Pumpkins for a Fall Wedding

Our daughter's wedding is next Saturday and things are starting to come together.     I was playing with the table decorations today and thought I would give you a sneak preview....

Melissa's colors are so pretty for a fall wedding.    Her home is decorated with the colors we are using in the wedding,   so many of  the things will fit right into her home after the wedding.

H and I picked up the pumpkins today that will be used on the reception tables.       The pumpkins we are using are grown right here in Eastern New Mexico and we got them at the Farmers Market from the young man that actually grew them!

Here is a sample of the decor that will be on the reception tables.

I needed some copper to go with the other metallic colors that she is using,  but I didn't have any.....hard to believe,  huh!    So,  I decided to try some copper metallic paint.    

 I gave the mirror frame a couple of coats to completely cover the gold......
But on the candelabra's I just did a dry brush and let the original color show thru.
I used a metallic paint called Worn Penny.     

Along with real pumpkins,   we are also using faux metallic ones.

We made two aqua mason jar candles for each table.     We all worked on them....even the  each one has it's own personality!

Each 10 foot table will have a burlap runner and  two  Mercury Glass votive candle holders.

The pumpkins will be on  silver chafing dishes.

Aqua pearls and glass pebbles will be scattered around on the tables.      

And of favorite thing is the wedding you those later    

Be back soon with more updates on the wedding!
