The cloche is covering the pumpkin covered in silk hydrangea flowers, resting in the berries. This was a wonderful suggestion made by my friend, Fabby of Fabby's Living. Thanks, dear friend!
The pumpkin is resting in a handmade wooden bowl purchased in North Carolina while on vacation a few years ago. I like the touch of wood in the mix.
This centerpiece will grace our Thanksgiving table this year when our family gathers here to celebrate this day of thankfulness.
From this angle you can see most of the centerpiece. In order to "tie" in the gorgeous fall colors into a room painted in cranberry, I used a cranberry velvet table runner as a base.
The votive candles will add an element of sparkle to the table.
Additions can always be added or taken away, but I am one who tends to "add" rather than take away. "Too much is never enough"
.......and with that thought in mind, I added yet another cloche.
The beaded tassel was purchased at an estate sale years ago.
My grandsons would never forgive me "if" I were to leave out the pilgrims so yet another item is added. The buffet will display the pilgrims.
On Pinterest I saw these handmade Pilgrim napkins and decided "the boys" would like them at their table. I am anxious to hear their comments......which could be either be good or "eye-rolling" looks to each other of dismay......giggle.
There you see the four grandsons I am so proud to have.....Matthew, Hudson, Davis, and Peyton. It has always been almost "magical" when they call me Granna. No one on earth can say my grandmother name like then can!!!
Marty, thank you for introducing me to the world of "cloches"......until I discovered your blog, I only owned one cloche and that one covered our wedding cake topper for the last 48 years. That is another story for another cloche party....giggle. Now I own several and love using them. The glass cloche adds interest and importance to the item being displayed and truly showcases it.
Thanks for stopping by to visit, and please, leave a comment so I will know you passed my way. It is always so dear to have friends visit me here!
