Hello everyone!

Boy, has it been a long time!!!   I'm so sorry for not being on sooner.   Life has been crazy busy these days with out of town trips, a hectic work schedule, and some other things....along with just trying to juggle work, homeschooling, and life in general!

For today, I wanted to share with you a table I created for a Fall prayer breakfast I had with a couple good friends recently!!! 

We hadn't had a prayer breakfast in a while, so I really wanted to make this table fun and special.  I call this tablescape "Pumpkins and Prayer"....I'm sure you can see why...haha!

I started with my full length white round tablecloth, however, it was just too white, so I topped it with an off-white crochet tablecloth from Goodwill to add some warmth.

This adorable pumpkin for the centerpiece was a great Goodwill find, and I set it on top of my homemade pedestal I made with a candleholder and a dessert plate (and some super glue!)

The orange pumpkin candle was set atop a small pillar candleholder...and it let off a wonderful pumpkin scent! 

I also used the top of a pretty covered dish I have as a small bowl for some orange and gold ornaments- a super deal I got on clearance after the Holidays last year.  I really like how this added some shine to the table.  All of these sat on top of a pretty beaded pumpkin placemat I got last year. 

For the place settings, I started out with orange chargers from Michaels, topped with a dollar store white dinner plate.  On top of that are these cute pumpkin plates from Pier 1 that I got for 75% off in January!!!   I stocked up on these, and you'll most likely see them again at our Thanksgiving feast!!! 

The darker orange napkins with the gold bling napkin rings were a good match for the darker orange in the pumpkin plates.  

I got this gold flatware online from Ebay, and then found some other pieces at Goodwill one day!  SCORE!   =D

It turned out to be such a nice morning of sharing and praying with some wonderful friends.  It's such a blessing to have friends that I can pray with and for and that I know are praying for me!  

Well, that's it for this TABLESCAPE TUESDAY!   I hope you have a wonderful week!
