Tablescapes, Pumpkins & Apples

I wanted to use my vegetable plates one more time before putting them away for wintertime,

and thought they might look cute with pumpkins~


I ran across a recipe for Pumpkin Soup with Apples

There was a table full of apples and pumpkins!

The centerpiece is a rattan tray with a couple of velvet pumpkins, some various real pumpkins and some goblets of fall flowers


November is often rainy in Alabama

  1. This is great, Jenna! From the centerpiece to the tiny pumpkins in what looks like egg cups. Not sure, but whatever they are, it has inspired me to try this with egg cups for yet another pumpkiny table, before I begin bringing out Christmas.

    I just had an acorn squash soup with apples at a restaurant in Charlottesville, VA. It tasted very much like yours sounds which was very good. Love the plates!

    Very pretty table, Jenna! I have a glass table in my kitchen that is always a pain for me to try to photograph, but you did a great job! I love the apples mixed in with the pumpkins and I look forward to your soup recipe.

    Jenna, Love your colorful table with pumpkins and apples! I tell myself every year I’m going to make some pumpkins from sweaters or velvet but never get around to it. I’m going to try to remember to save my stems for next year 🙂

  5. Love this tablescape!! And it works so well with your veggie plates!

    This table looks like I walked into a design store and it was the focal point! What a beautiful job you have done with all of the pumpkins and blending them with your veggie plates. It is just yummy!

  16. I just love everything about this table! Mostly I love the sculptural approach to building your table setting, as if it’s a canvas you’re applying paint to and building to crescendo. That’s my mindset when I build a tablescape and it’s done to perfection here! It shows a real art for composition… 🙂

    I love the vegetable dishes and the cute pumpkins with the apples. The centerpiece looks lovely in the rattan tray. The velvet pumpkin looks so plush! You are making me long for fall. I love pumpkins and fall leaves. And then there is Halloween and Thanksgiving. So much fun. And the colors of rich golds and reds. And the spectrum of orange from rust to apricot. Maybe I better start poking into the bins of fall decor.
