Autumn Tablescape: Flinging Pumpkins

Lately, I’ve had a bit of an orange crush.

Bright pumpkins and gourds in shades of persimmon, mango and tangerine.

For the last few Autumns, it was all about pale pumpkins.  Washed-out, pretty pastels.

Creams and whites were in, while any gourd sporting the unfortunate classic shade of orange was shamefully banished.
