the pumpkins are here!

Much to my surprise, the pumpkins are already in at Trader Joe’s! Over the weekend I stopped in to grab a few groceries and a selection of flowers for my fall inspired table, and while I was there, I was happy to run into boxes and boxes of Cinderella Pumpkins and Baby Boos, my absolute favorites!!

You see, my table was all set with one of favorite fall plaid throws from Pottery Barn and some new little pumpkin plates I recently found at Home Goods. All that was left to do was make a bouquet for the center of the table. 

So now, not only do I have my pretty flowers for the table, but also a small little grouping of these adorable little white “Baby Boo” pumpkins. And they're quite a deal at only 69 cents apiece!  

Scrabble tiles I’ve collected from estate sales and thrift stores are fun to use to create a holiday message or spell out names for each place setting.

The focus of the table revolves around the darling pumpkin plates I picked up at Home Goods. This is actually an individual plate that came with a cheese knife, and I bought a few to use at the table this year . 

They do sell sets of four pumpkin plates from time to time, and you have to grab those quickly when you spot them because they sell out fast! For this table, I'm using these pumpkins as salad plates, and I've got my trusty ivory Wedgwood plates as a base, and of course to serve as the dinner plates! 

A textured placemat is a perfect buffer for the plates and the plaid throw, and I like how it defines each place setting and gives it more of a presence.    

A thrifted white pitcher from Crate & Barrel serves as a festive vase for this collection of flowers. Soft orange dahlias and peachy white roses repeat a bit of the autumn colors from the plaid, and silver dollar eucalyptus softens this whole look. 

A scattering of the mini white pumpkins adds a little fun to the table.

I found this “Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice” pillow three years ago on Amazon, and it’s still available here. It usually sits on a chair on my front porch, and has weathered the outdoor conditions well. It still looks brand new!

I love these Fitz and Floyd goblets so much, and I use them a lot during the fall. You can spot them in lots of my previous tablescapes. I also have them in blue and they come in lots of other fun colors too. The amber color is not available at the moment, but here's another similar look.

Bamboo flatware add the perfect amount of fall flair to the table.

Besides the flowers, I brought in just a touch of color with these sweet and
 classic Mayberry napkins by Serena & Lily in the color Papaya. 

They offer the perfect touch of orangey-red that I love for fall.

It’s fun to mix up the flower selection and go with something different. 

I know autumn is not officially here, but for some, September ushers in the fall season so "HAPPY FALL" to you all! And please check back soon as I set another fun fall table using plaid and more pumpkin plates. Here’s a peek...
