White Pumpkins

I'm so predictable. I got two little whitish pumpkins and arranged them on some fall leaves on each pedestal. I know, I know, I really need to push myself to try something different now and then, but I'm planning Thanksgiving dinner now so my mind is elsewhere.

We are having the families over as usual, but I think only 17 will be here, so {miracle of miracles!} we get to all sit down and eat together at the same table. It's so much more relaxing that way; I'm actually looking forward to it.

I wish I had time to post more often and put more into these blogs, but juggling a full time job, two teenagers, the house, the bills, the laundry, shopping and cooking leave very little time for blogging. Please just know that I read every comment and enjoy them immensely, and I appreciate all your help and suggestions. And thanks for taking time out of your busy day to visit us here Amongst The Oaks.

Great shading on the pumpkins. So much more interesting than just orange.

Beautiful. Yes, I'm planning, too. Hard not to think of celebrations during this season I love the planning. C

It doesn't really matter if it is a little predictable, the pumpkins look great with everything else.
I enjoyed reading your blog for the first time today.

The pumpkins look great. After all you did for halloween I'm surprised you can even think about another project. Your buffet arrangement is beautiful. I usually don't use a lot of white but I love the way it looks against the dark wallpaper. I've got a dark red dinning room and some new white dishes. I think I'll have to play with them this weekend!

Well it doesn't normally seat 17, but I can add another table to the end of it and seat 17. But I just found out we are down to 15! I'm beginning to see a civilized meal here now. Yippee!
