Velvet pumpkins, blown and mercury glass pumpkins and a festive mood.


I discovered these whimsical silk velvet pumpkins with natural stems in luscious fall colors at a chic party at Stratford Hall in Virginia.  They are hand made in Oregon, by Hot Skwash.  I have stocked up on several in the blue color way and they might even inspire me to give a dinner party.  I sent the purple and orange pumpkins to my daughter who had a fall wedding which featured those warm colors.   I have mixed them with real pumpkins in some interesting colors on my table.  I am going to use them on my Thanksgiving table this year.
