Some little white pumpkins

The other day while at the grocery store, I bought four white pumpkins and thought they would look cute at each place setting at the dinner table. So, I placed the white pumpkins on the dinner plates and well, they just looked to small! I walked around the house holding these pumpkins, hoping for a decorating idea to pop into my head. Here's what I did.

I placed the pumpkins on some candle holders that I have. These are on one side of the foyer table.

I decorated one of the pumpkins with some vintage lace and an earring. So fast and simple to do. I secured the lace to the pumpkin with a straight pin and glued the earring to the lace. When I take my fall decorations down, I will simply take the lace and earring off the pumpkin and use for something else.

The other pumpkin sits on top of another candle holder surrounded by a pretty wreath.

Here's another look.

This is a candle holder that sits on the buffet table with all my beaded domes. I am so far behind this year with my fall decorations that I almost gave up. At least this is a start and now I feel inspired to get it done.

As I write this post, I have a whole chicken baking in the oven, stuffed with a large bundle of fresh thyme, garlic, and lemons and the house smells scrumptious! My kids are waiting patiently for dinner to be done and so am I!

Make it a great day, Janice

Hi Janice,
Want to hear something hilarious? Today I tried a new recipe for chicken made in a crock-pot and it was thyme and lemon chicken...the house smells sooooo good. It is probably like smelling yours. Too funny huh? The chicken was delicious. Anyway, love your little white pumpkins. Check my blog tomorrow, I made some pumpkins out of fabric...let me know what you think. Until next time.
