Pumpkins at the Table for Dinner Group

Saturday night we hosted our dinner group. There are usually 8 of us but one couple could not make it. We had a really nice evening of appetizers and drinks then for dinner I made crab lasagna, a salad with home made dressing and bread. Dessert was a pumpkin dump cake that was so easy to make and DELICIOUS!!! I will share the recipes in another post. I found these pretty pumpkin plates at Walmart this year! I originally only bought 2 but then decided to use them for dinner group so got 4 more:)
 I did a very simple centerpiece and removed it before dinner.
 The salad bowl was purchased last year. Also from Walmart.
 It is even decorated inside!
 My leaf wine glasses came from Kirklands several years ago.
 There are 3 different colored leaves on the glasses and the green is so pretty with the dishes.

 Since I only have 4 pace settings of this green handled flatware I also used a pearl handled green flatware at the table also. You can see that in the first few photos above.

 Let's light the candles!

 These beautiful napkin rings were purchased at Christmas Tree Shops 2 years ago.
 So pretty with these dishes.
 I used a white tablecloth, a rust colored charger, green dinner plate and the pumpkin salad/dessert plate.
 I used clear salad bowls so we could use the plates for dessert.
 Like I said, I will share the recipes in another post. I am so sorry I didn't get a shot of the lasagna. I had it at a friends house and had never made it but it turned out very good!!!
Thanks so much for your visit. Leave me a comment, they make my day:)

  12. Pinky, your tablescape is absolutely gorgeous. It looks like we have the same taste in plates. I love those pumpkin plates especially because they have a touch of blue on them. You know how I love blue. I know your guest must have felt special sitting at the beautiful table you created for them and eating all of that delicious food!!!

  13. What a welcoming table, and so perfect for a fall dinner. All your elements go so beautifully together (LOVE your pumpkin plates layered with a rust charger and green plate!) Your centerpiece accented everything perfectly. I would have loved to have been a guest! Your menu sounded yummy, too! Bravo! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  14. We need to get together with the flatware as I, too, have only 4 place settings. Fun table, my friend.


Thanks you for leaving your lovely comments. xo, Pinky
