The table shouted out loud, "Enough of summer!! Bring on fall!"
So, I got some different pumpkins, squash, gourds and brought them home. I fully intended to add the gold touches, but when I saw the different pieces in all their beauty, I couldn't bear to cover any of it up with gold!
Or these sweet, creamy mini pumpkins?
No, these needed to just be piled onto the table, accented with some crepe myrtle seed pods,
and a few tiny terracotta pots spread around with votives inside.
Spray the seed pods gold? Paint the tiny pots gold inside or outside? No, gold was just not working for me this fall. I wanted the real colors of the vegetables, the imperfect oval seed pods, the rough terracotta of the little pots.
Perfect. Fall has arrived on my table top. And, oooooh, just look how warmly it glows at night!
