Autumn Jubilee – One More Day of Fun

Today is the last day of Autumn Jubilee, and I still haven’t been able to show all the things in my head. Plus, there are some great deals and specials going with the Autumn Jubilee sponsors, check out the list at the bottom.  Halloween is tomorrow, so I have just enough time to show you a Halloween tablescape to cap off this month long event.   Starting with the centerpiece, this little ceramic jack-0-lantern is really special to me.  My mother and I both had one.  We got them while shopping at a special store all decked out for fall one year.  I think of her every time I see it, and that little store we visited each September to kick off the fall season.  I set the centerpiece on a bed of silk fall leaves.

Behind the pumpkin is a plastic cauldron, with a skull garland bubbling out onto the table.  A little wooden black cat has a cute face.  I inherited the kitty from my mother too.  She loved cats.

More small ceramic jack-o-lanters are added to the centerpiece.

Some years ago, I got a set of Halloween plates, and they come out every October.  This one has owls and a little dog.  They are set on my white everyday stoneware plates and orange chargers.

Everyday flatware and drink glasses are added.  Here the plate has a black cat sitting in a jack-o-lantern.

The last one has a pumpkin patch.

Black napkins held with pumpkin napkin rings, and my pumpkin bowls complete the place settings.

There we are, a table to enjoy all through October.  In the middle is the Pumpkin Leaf Table Topper from Autumn Jubilee 2016.  See all the previous Autumn Jubilee projects from previous years by using the category link on the sidebar.  All Autumn Jubilee patterns remain free on the blog.  My patterns for sale are available on My Patterns page.

    Wonderful inspiring month! Sponsors… I wasn’t familar with some them… thank you for the introduction. Idea for future post….how about sharing where and how you store all your tablescape items.

    1. Rosemaryflower

      Mary, I have been reading Carole’s blog for so many years and I bet I know. She probably has a special space to organize all of her treasures. I am looking forward to her disclosure as well. I know we will be impressed

    Thank you to your sponsors and to you, Carole for another fabulous Autumn Jubilee. Congratulations to all the lucky winners. Love your smiling ceramic pumpkin. My mother’s birthday was in September. One year we had a terrific time shopping for silk flowers to make each of us an Autumn arrangement. Now every year when I pull mine out I remember the special time we had together, and as always, think of her with a smile.

  3. Rosemaryflower

    Your collection of Fall and Halloween decorations and serve ware is wonderful. I love the pumpkin too. Such a sweet special piece. Really a treasure. I love the plates too, Carole.
    I have been reading each blog but not commenting, — too busy.
    I have really enjoyed it though. Your blog is one of my favorites

  4. I always enjoy your Autumn Jubilee series, Carole! Thanks for putting it together for us, and thanks to all the sponsors for their wonderful prizes, too. I still plan to make some of your flying geese placemats for November!

    I have thoroughly enjoyed all your Autumn Jubilee posts and even though I haven’t tried all the projects myself, I’ve enjoyed reading about them. (I’m going to check out your table topper pattern from 2016, too, since that was before I discovered your blog.) And I am extra thrilled to be one of your winners this year! Thank you for coordinating all the wonderful giveaways, and a big thanks to all your sponsors who made this Jubilee so much fun.

    Autumn Jubilee was so much fun!! Thank you to all of the sponsors, with a special thank you to Primitive Homespuns Wool and Needleworks!! I have already received the bundle of wool fabrics and the order I placed with them with the $25 gift certificate!! I am planning on making some stuffed animals for my grandchildren with them, mixed with the wool suits from my dad’s closet…I hope I can make it work because I really want each of them to have a special memory softie to remember my dad. Of course, I need to wait for him to finish using said suits, but planning ahead is a good thing, right?

  17. it was a great celebration! Thanks for hosting it and thanks for continuing to blog. I am a relatively new follower. Though I can’t remember which one of my blogger friends gave me the link, I thank them too!!
    Happy Halloween
    xx, Carol
