I've learned there are three things you don't discuss with people: religion, politics and the Great Pumpkin.
Welcome to Centerpiece Wednesday and Tablescape Thursday! We are pleased to bring you this pumpkin tablescape inspired by the adorable book "Too Many Pumpkins." The book is based, in part, on a true story of the author's aunt who hated pumpkins. When she was a child, she was forced to eat so many pumpkins from their family's farm during the Depression years. In the end, the main character, Rebecca Estelle learns to love pumpkins again.
I won this lovely book several weeks ago from the blog In The Details hosted by Gabe who has a beautiful family and eloquently talks about her life in my beautiful home state of Wisconsin. Thank you Gabe!
I bought these adorable salad plates years ago at a local grocery store. Zoulah just loves them!
The pumpkin napkin rings, I bought on clearance at Wal-Mart, make their debut in this tablescape.
Unlike Rebecca Estelle, Zoulah and I agree there can never be too many pumpkins! Zoulah and I are wild about pumpkins.
I like all kinds of pumpkins -- and have even warmed a bit to the white ones.
I adore the warty kinds -- how about you Zoulah? No offence intended!
Much to Rebecca Estelle's dismay, she has a lot of "volunteer" pumpkins grow in her garden. We, at the Red Couch home would smile on our good fortune if that happened. We are not very skilled at growing pumpkins.
I think every porch should be adorned with a pumpkin or two at Halloween. I love it when people have a huge harvest and show it off on their porch.
Zoulah was busy making pumpkin cookies in her Bewitchen Kitchen. She asks that you take a few on your way out.
Zoulah thanks you for stopping by Red Couch Recipes.
