Tablescapes, Crabby Pumpkin

My pumpkin is being very crabby

He won’t dress up


He thinks it’s shabby


He said “No!” to the beach hat

and that settled that!

The Mardi Gras mask would have been cute

But he said “No!”

“It doesn’t suit!”


He just won’t play at all today!

    Your crabby table provides the perfect amount of orange for a seaside table in October Jenna, decorated pumpkin or not 🙂 Love the runner! Is it seersucker?

    Your pumpkin is just being a party pooper! Or is that pumpkin pooper??? :@)

    Oh, how clever! Perfect colors on your crab dishes for Halloween.

    Well I wouldn’t be crabby, like your pumpkin, if I was sitting at your pretty table, Jenna! Your poem is too cute. I’d say make pumpkin pie out of Mr. Crabby Pumpkin!

  5. What a shame your pumpkin is being so crabby! 🙂 The shabby hat really does suit him well! Beautiful table setting… love the plates! ~Rhonda

    Pumpkins and crabs….a perfect combo for Halloween on the coast. The pumpkin can’t be too crabby if it pays any attention to your poetic skills!

  9. What a gorgeous celebratory table. Lovely dishes. Love those pumpkins.

  10. Very witty, Jenna. Love the blues with the Orange.

  11. What a cute table and poem to go with it, Jenna! Love how you mixed coastal with holiday.

  12. So cute! I keep looking at those crab dishes at Home Goods and pondering, but alas I haven’t broken down and gotten them…YET. Thanks so much for sharing over at Celebrate it Sunday!
