Pumpkin Centerpiece

Pumpkin
I mentioned that we got our first pumpkin last week.

I set it on a doily and the cake plate Linda gave me a few weeks ago.

Table
And set it between two candles for a quick and easy centerpiece!

Candle light makes things more cozy this time of year.

Kelli,

I just love decorating with pumpkins and gourds. I usually get a few big pumpkins and put them on the fireplace hearth. I never carve them on Halloween. :)

I'm sorry to say that I accidentally put your last comment as spam and it went far away to the netherworld. I tried to retrieve it but could not figure out how. I am hoping it was just one comment and that you aren't "spam" forever. Oh gosh.

I love how it all looks! I'm just not ready to begin turning things into fall...at least not until the 22nd :)

I need to have leaves falling, wind blowing, and early darkness to make me start thinking of fall.

Jen said...

I lit a candle while I cleaned yesterday because that is what you do....I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks so much for such great advice. You dont know how much we enjoy it.

Mrs. H. said...

Love it! And I love that tablecloth, too! :-) May I ask if it is cloth or vinyl and where you got it?

Judy said...

The pumpkin looks so perfect. You made it look so lovely sitting on your table.

Kelli! Great minds think alike! My pumpkin is sitting on my cake plate too! Of course when I bought yours, I had to get one for me too!

Glad to see you enjoying it!

Hi Kelly! I wanted to tell you that I went to the Dollar Store and bought a couple of those candles. You are so right.....they smell wonderful. Thanks for telling where you got them.

Hope you and your family have a good Tuesday. :-)

I really like the table linen and the pumpkin is just perfect. Great idea.

Deb said...

Hi Kelli,
Love the look! I'm slowly getting there. Last night I tried to "force" fall with a big pot of soup and grilled cheese, but alas, the temperature was still over 80 when I looked! I'm off to make some cards:)

Charlotte said...

Hi Kelli. I've enjoyed catching up on your blog. The pumpkin and other decorations in your home are great for fall. I like the new fall look of your blog also.

TJ said...

This was beautiful! While our mornings are cold the afternoons are still in the 80's so I almost feel as if I'm rushing Fall. I have found myself many times while looking through my meager Fall decor "What would Kelli do?" You inspire me!

Love the pumpkin! My husband and I were talking yesterday about getting some in a few days. I love this time of year...just wish the weather would cooperate with my yearning for fall! Enjoyed the pictures.

Danielle said...

I love pumpkins, the warm glow of candles is so pretty as well.

I like to display some of my knitted pumpkins every year :)

Julie said...

We have 13 pumpkins just waiting to be picked--your idea was simple and sweet. julie

Dawn said...

I am ready for fall but I don't think Texas is as far as the weather is concerned. :-)
Have you been the Hobby Lobby or Cracker Barrel lately? They have all their fall and Christmas stuff out. It's like Heaven on earth when I walk into places like that. I can't get dragged out of there until I look at everything...lol.

When you are done with your pumpkins do you make pumpkin pie or bake the seeds or what do you do with it?

Hope you are having a good week!

Hugs,
Dawn

Kelli, it's beautiful, especially the candles in the dim light. I am always amazed you have wonderful ideas and share them.

Have a wonderful evening!

Julieann said...

Kelli--I have been in Michael's countless times too--I can not beleive I have never seen the oils---LOL:) I will let you know if I find them, when I go there.

This is so pretty, Kelli!

I was at Wal Mart today and saw they had pumpkins and gourds on sale. Made me so excited for Fall!

A question..is that your house in your blog header?

Lady Laurie said...

That is such a cute idea! I have a few fake pumpkins, but nothing beats the real deal. You are right about candles, they instantly add "cozy" to a room.

Angie Vinez said...

This is SO gorgeous. I just love decorating for fall! Thanks for all the great tips!

By the way - I nominated your blog for an award! Get the details here: http://angiesfifth.blogspot.com/2008/09/ive-received-i-love-your-blog-award.html

This is so pretty Kelli. Simplicity is so often the nicest way to go, I think. Especially with natural things.
