Black and White Pumpkin Table
This year there was actually a pumpkin harvest at StoneGable. I have tried for years to successfully grow pumpkins to no avail. Due to the hot, dry weather the pumpkins I planted grew... and took over the garden.
This table was inspired by the Little Boo Pumpkins from my prolific garden!
I am enthralled with the creamy white color and waxy texture of the Little Boo Pumpkins! Combining them with black and white elements created a fun yet sophicated table.
The white "all purpose" tablecloth gives a clean background for the black and white theme.
Black and white napkins double as placemats once folded in the middle. I often use this trick and no one is the wiser... if I don't tell!
Pearlized grey flatware fits nicely with the color and feel of this dramatic table.
My love for mismatched piled high dishes is evident at this table. A large leaf and berry white charger grounds the grouping.
The black and white handpainted checked plate makes a perfect base for a Little Boo! And just to guild the Lilly, a little gingham ribbon is tied to the stem!
Napkins that match the placemats are doubled with a black and white check napkin for an extra punch. They are caught up with a white vintage feel napkin ring.
White bubble glasses and delicate porcelain cups and saucers are added to each place.
A wrought iron tiered fruit basket becomes a festive centerpiece.
Straw-like exselcer acts as a filler make a soft nest, of sorts, for the pumpkins.
A little pumpkin greets the table guests with a big BOO!
Large white pumpkins on wrought iron bases contribute to the centerpiece.
A large oil rubbed bronze lantern glows with the warmth of a bow embellished pillar candle.
Dessert plates are ready and waiting for a delicious pumpkin cheesecake.

StoneGable FYI: If you have visited me for any length of time, I am sure you have seen many of the pieces on this table before. Everything on this table is something I had on hand. And with the exception of the pumpkins, I have used the elements in this table many times on TT.
