Pretty Fall Pumpkins

Hello Friends!

I have been busy crafting and decorating for fall and I wanted to show you some of the fruits of my labor!
I covered 4 small foam pumpkins with old book paper and then distressed them. I added some ribbon, lace, tulle, and other embellishments to dress them up!

Aren't they pretty? I love how vintage and old fashioned they look. They are decorating my dining room table right now but I might move them to a more prominent place later.

Here are a few more pumpkins I made last weekend. They are fashioned from fabric and embellishments. This one above was actually cut from a tablecloth!!! They make great fabric for crafting!

It's hard to believe this beautiful little pumpkin used to be a tablecloth! This pumpkin looks like she's dressed for a wedding in all white and ivory. I love how it turned out!

This little pumpkin is made out of ivory velvet fabric. Isn't the rhinestone embellishment gorgeous!?

This is my dining room all decorated for the fall. I decided to go light this year. Last year I used browns, oranges, golds . . . the traditional fall colors. This year I wanted a fresh, different look so I decorated with ivory, white, and brown. I really love how the light colors really brightens the room . . . and my mood!

This is my glorious table scape. I was inspired by Rebecca and got busy creating my own version of a romantic fall table scape in all ivory and white. I am so delighted at how it turned out!! I can't wait to have a tea party and a romantic dinner here! James and I have decided to eat our spaghetti on TV trays in the living room, however, since marinara sauce could be very dangerous if eaten at this table!

I am so in love with ivory lace right now. I just can't get enough! Every time I see it anywhere I have to buy it, no matter what it is. I think I may need help!

See the sweet vintage pumpkins I created on the table? I don't know if I should move them or not? What do you think?

Here is the place setting. I spray painted some gold chargers white. They haven't held up very well. The paint didn't stick so well so I need to figure out what I need to do to fix that. I used my Pope Gosser Rose Point china this time. The white silk napkin is tied with tan silk ribbon and I added a wedding flower to embellish it up a bit. So feminine and romantic!!!

Here is my china hutch filled with more Rose Point dishes. It isn't too fussy this time. I didn't really know what else I could put in it other than some ivory pumpkins and some pine cones. Do you have any suggestions?

I found this beautiful thing at my favorite store in Guthrie called Rosa Bella. I buy something every time I go in. This and a few other treasures I will be showing you later are what I came out with this past trip. I am going to add more rhinestone embellishment to this to really make it sparkle. You will probably see it again with pink ribbon on it for Christmas!

I know it is a bit late and we are all over Halloween now but I couldn't resist showing you the pictures of our Halloween pumpkins for this year. They turned out so cute!

I think you all know that I am in love with one of the sweetest men alive. James is so kind, loving, and thoughtful. I love how we have so much fun together and that I can be myself with him. He is so giving and generous and he is always doing sweet things for me. I feel so blessed to have this wonderful man to share my life with.

Our pumpkins were pretty spooky on the front porch in the dark! It was too bad they only lasted about a week. But we had so much fun creating them and go to enjoy them for a while! At least we will have the memories forever!

I haven't taken pictures of the fall living room yet because the lighting hasn't been right, but they are coming. The living room is so pretty decorated in ivory, white, and brown. I am so excited for you to see!!! Hopefully I can post those pictures next weekend!

I hope you have a blessed weekend! Please leave me a comment, I love to hear from you all!

Blessings to you!
Love Tammy

  1. Just beautiful. Love the tablecloth pumpkin idea. Your pumpkin is awesome,

  2. Hi Tammy,
    I'm new to your blog. I love your tablescape and beautiful dining area! I have a pink and white room that I call my foo foo room.

    You have a lovely blog and I'll be following you in the future!


  3. Tammy you are so creative, and your work is beautiful. You also inspire me. I hope next year I will remember your pumpkins. I like to do my fall decorating with white & cream predoninetly. I add a little color here and there. Usually in peach and gold. My faux pumpkins are painted white. But I know the way you decorated your pumpkins will fit right in here. Great minds do think a like. I am painting some plastic chargers also. I just found Krylon plastic primer. It is supposed to work better than all purpose primers. I hope so.



  4. Simply beautiful!

    My Pink, have a nice weekend!

  5. Your pumpkins are simply beautiful! Your dining room looks so very elegant and pretty too. I used to carve pumpkins with neat patterns and they looked amazing when lit at night, but you are right, they rot pretty quickly. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for coming by to say hi!

  6. Happy Pink Saturday Tammy Sweetie...
    Oh my gosh, you are so in the pink with this decorating here at Tammy's Sweet Heart. Everything looks so exquisite. I love the pumpkins that you made. So beautiful, and that one of velvet, oh how gorgeous is that. I love it sweet friend.

    Your table settings are so exquisite. You were meant for having teas. I have never felt so elegant as I did the night I sat at your beautiful table. I love your comment about being addicted to lace. Love it.

    Thank you for sharing this evening. I also loved seeing you and James with your pumpkins that you carved. They are so fabulous. I can see the love that you both have for each other.

    Many hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry
