[ Pumpkins 4 Traditionalist ]
As much as I love white, blue and funky pumpkins, I still have to have a traditional orange pumpkin.
1. Love the color orange.
2. Orange is the new black - not really relevant here.
3. Go Orangemen . I'm a Syracuse fan.
4. My living room has lots of orange.
The color orange radiates warmth and happiness. It offers emotional strength in difficult times, and helps us to bounce back from disappointments. The psychology of color states that orange is optimistic, uplifting, and rejuvenates our spirit. It brings a spontaneity and a positive outlook on life. It keeps us motivated and helps us to look on the bright side of life.
Centerpiece: Want to encourage social communication, stimulating two way conversations say it with orange. This warm color is both physically and mentally stimulating, so it gets people thinking and talking! It encourages self-respect and respect of others.What better way to compliment orange and express more warmth and happiness is adding yellow. Yellow is the color of the mind and the intellect. It is optimistic and cheerful. Yellow is uplifting and illuminating, offering hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun.
Add a smiley pumpkin and voila!
Place Setting: More is better, more pumpkins. Small pumpkin plates rest on a yellow lettuce leaf plate carries out the theme. Gold plated flatware, and gold etched glasses add more warmth to the setting.
Just love those tea lights. More mini pumpkins in the form of tea lights illuminate the place setting. Find some cordial glasses and use them as tea light holders.
The floral centerpiece was made for a gift. It was so beautiful, that it said to me "tablescape me".
Florists have coined: Say it with flowers.....orange and yellow flowers.
