This is not the first birthday dinner for my daughter ... that we have celebrated with blue pumpkins! It is, however, the first time the tablescape include all these old canning jars! The big jar is a new acquisition from Big Lots!
Just look at all the blue pumpkins ... ceramic, plastic faux, blown glass ... fabric and one made with corn shucks!
These cute napkins and napkin rings came from Pier 1 ... the soup bowls have been in the cabinet for a couple years ... and the blue maple leaf depression glass plates are some of my favorites! The dinnerware is 1970s Mikasa and the flatware is Cambridge. Blue !!!!
I'm afraid that something at Big Lots caught my eye a few weeks ago. A pretty teal pumpkin! Then I saw another one ... then I saw some blue pumpkin shaped candles and all that reminded me of the year that I decorated my sun room for Halloween in BLUE! Phoebe was little then, and she loved the word BLUUUUUUE! She would drag in out and emphasize it and make us all mimic her!
So, I decided to have a blue dining room for autumn, until the Halloween decorations came out!
My picture came from Kirkland's .. and don't you love that cozy blanket hanging off the mantel? It took about ten minutes to make that!
