Pumpkin Patch Teatime

Please take your seat at the tabletop for teatime with the pumpkins!









Our hosts aren't fussy. They've set a table for two, but more dishes wait in the wings in case other guests arrive. No Emily or Martha live in the patch, so RSVP does not really apply at this party.







How fabulous is this flatware? The Flatware Fairy dropped it off last last week, and it was the inspiration for this tablescape. Thank you, Flatware Fairy!









The placesettings are Fiesta tangerine lunch plates with jack-o-lantern decals, black fruit bowls, persimmon demitasse cups and saucers, special Halloween flatware and contemporary black napkins.

The serving pieces include a Hall donut teapot, a tangerine Fiesta mini pitcher and a black Fiesta presentation bowl. No sugar dish here...pumpkins take their tea with milk only!

Now about this centerpiece...lest you worry that the pumpkins are eating their young, these babies are decorative only! Your tea cakes await on this Fiesta Happy Pumpkin plate. Just use the Oneida Cityscape server to help yourself.



Happy Halloween, and Happy Tablescape Thursday!

  1. This turned out so cute Daphne! Love the teapot with this combo of Fiesta and accessories. That's a Hall tpot, right?

    And I love the idea of the Betty Bowl holder....that is what is holding the Jack O Lantern plate, correct?

    And no tablecloth works perfectly this time, allowing the enamel tabletop to become part of the tablescape. Love it!

    PS OH MAN! What a difference in running around the internet ..... we built a solar powered tower and have a fiber-optic link-up now! Your page and comment form is there before I can even blink, so the problem with the comment thingy WAS on my end!

  4. So festive and fun!

    I had seen that flatware at HomeGoods, but just couldn't rationalize it since I already have orange flatware.

    Fun table!

  16. Thanks for your kind words, everyone! So, where do you think that the Flatware Fairy would stop on her rounds to make sure that every tabletop is ready for the haunting season? Homegoods, of course! Perhaps you can find this set at the store near you!
