I couldn’t help myself, I’ve just got gourds on the brain. Especially after visiting the dollar store last night! They had the prettiest ceramic pumpkins! I may have gone a little overboard with the pumpkin hoarding harvesting.
Amongst my ceramic pumpkins I also purchased some “faux” gourds. They won’t rot like the real thing, so if they survive a season in casa de April, I can use them next year!
So here’s what I did with them once I got them all prettied up and unwrapped.
All of the pumpkins and squash like items, came from the dollar store. Everything else I already owned. The table runner is actually a small round table cloth that I folded to fit like a table runner. The place mats I purchased, at the dollar store (!), back in February. I raised some of the pumpkins by placing them atop upside down drinking glasses, and a pillar candle holder I got for Christmas last year. And the dinnerware of course, I have owned since my first college apartment. Speaking of which it might be time to buy some more “grown up” dinnerware. A girl can only use her mom’s 80’s goose plates for so long!
Here’s some more views of my pretty harvest table:
Doesn’t it make you want to GOURDge on a yummy harvest inspired supper with pumpkin pie for dessert?!
