Autumn Pumpkin Tea


Happy Monday everyone,
The weather has warmed up again in Northern California. This weekend I wanted to capture the beautiful Autumn colors in my garden, so I decided to set a tea table under the pergola. It's late afternoon and the trees and flowers are in full Autumn glory...
If you are a new visitor, I want to welcome you to My Cozy Corner.
I hope you enjoy your visit.
The beautiful pumpkin colored mums in the vase are from my garden. I have another mum bush the color of the purple plum tree, but now I want to enjoy the versatile use of pumpkins.To see more pumpkins  Go Here

I purchased these pumpkins for their beautiful stems. I have other plans for the stems later, but now I'm having a blast using these little pumpkins in many different ways.
The inspiration for this tablescape or Tea table are the pumpkin napkin rings. I found them a few years ago in the thrift store and they are perfect for this table setting.
The beautiful table cloth is 64" wide and 96" long. I bought this beauty in my favorite thrift shop for $6.00. Amazing...
Charger is from Dollar Tree
White dinner plate
White basket weave salad plate is our everyday over 25 years old
Flatware from Walmart
Cup and Saucer is Green Depression Glass
Green juice glass is vintage over 35 years old
Green napkins are from the thrift store last month.
~Love this stem~
The beautiful cross-stitch work is amazing on this vintage tablecloth.

Green is my favorite color
I casually arranged the mums in the my vintage vase for my outdoor
Autumn Pumpkin Tea

Autumn is in full swing in Northern California.
Thanks for visiting My Cozy Corner

  16. Some great thrift finds to make your autumn tea table lovely. I like the stems on the pumpkins too, usually they only sport a little stub.
    The tablecloth is pretty and lucky to find another home where it will be cherished.

  27. Love your table. I love the green glass and the pumpkins. I see you are in Redding. Is that right? We used to live in Redding, in a Victorian uphill from the Downtown Mall, where my husband was the jeweler for years at Field's Jewelers. Brought back lots of memories! Nice to meet you!
