Leaves fall in Texas, Pumpkins for sale!

Pumpkins For Sale
The sign on the crate tells you the fall pumpkins are ready for your purchase!
The fairy is sitting in front of the pumpkin candle holder.

A pumpkin votive candle holder has three pumpkin orange votive holders. They are lit for the a pleasant effect. Two of the pumpkin votive candle holders are positioned to light both sides of the table scape.
The autumn place setting has two place mats for a contrasting effect. The leaf place mat is angled in different directions at each place setting. The fall green and tan plaid place mat gives a grounding to the fall colors. You also see each place setting has different autumnal colors for contrast. A silver pumpkin place card holder is set in the small leaf bowl.

An overhead photo of the center of the table givens you a view of the blending of the coordination of autumnal shades.

The light from the bay windows shows a cheerful look at dining table. Please notice the light shining threw the amber etched goblet. The story is I had to travel to several stores in the vicinity to find enough for six. Luckily, the goblets were on sale for half price.

This is the artistic photo of the group, the sun and shadows was coming in during the morning, while I was photographing the table. We have had at least two weeks of rain here and I finally have a sunny day to photograph the table. It is so unusual for the rain to come all at once in this part of Texas.

The very center of the fall table is a Fitz n Floyd pumpkin tureen. I hope many of you went to the wonderful sale at Big Lots. The tureen was one of the great items I purchased.

I didn't find my pumpkins for the 25 cents price on the crate, but I did find them on sale.

The embroidered pumpkin and the fall colored stripes on the napkin are enhanced by the miniature pumpkin napkin rings.

The pumpkins are displayed in two antique green and gold crates.

More shapes of pumpkins are ready for sale in the two miniature metal wagons.

A photo of the metal pumpkin candle holder before the orange votive holders were lit. The pumpkin shaded beads are entwined around the pumpkin shape.

The face of this autumn fairy is surrounded by her rosy curls and her golden leaf wings, leaf bouquet and embroidered leaf dress.

The other fall fairy has golden braids with a darling leaf pinned hat. The pumpkin shades of her voile dress which is accented with tiny autumn flowers.
Both of the fairies are resting on the fall crates of pumpkins.

The napkin and napkin holder has the autumn colors to coordinate with the fall leaf china.

Each place setting has bowls and plates of differing colors, this is to compliment the leaf place mat.

Here is another example of how the place setting were arranged to show the autumnal colors.

The pumpkin beads on the wreath surrounds the pumpkin tureen for a compliment to the beaded pumpkin candle holders.

Miss Fall Flower Fairy has surrounded herself with pumpkins.

Miss Autumn Leaf Fairy is pointing out a her favorite choice.

The two photos below show some of the other shades of the china.

The photo gives a shot of how the table scape is placed.

Miss Fall Flower Fairy is sharing her space with the large pumpkin tureen.

Miss Autumn Leaf Fairy is hoping to entice someone to buy from her stash of pumpkins.

The beaded tendrils of the wreath are trying to climb the pumpkin.
