Welcome back to another fall table! We got to host here for my son's second birthday last weekend and family was coming over for lunch. I had received this gorgeous arrangement from Telaflora and knew I could whip up a cute table to really put the flowers on show! The arrangement comes in its own vase and its arranged so beatuifully. It was so effortless. From my door to the center of table, the flowers made the look really special. Telaflora made ordering so easy and I even have a special discount code for you to get 10% off right now - its HOUSEFIVE10. I chose the Lush and Lovely arrangement in the Fall category.
I wanted to dress up the table a bit to match the drama of the arrangement, so I used a rose gold sequin fabric to drape over the table. I used 1 1/2 yards and found the fabric at Hobby Lobby. I'm really into rose gold right now and was thrilled they had just what I imagined.
For the garland, I used the same faux boxwood garland from my previous post. I added in some glittered pumpkins from Hobby Lobby and some buckeyes from Iowa that my mother in law gave me! Along with some light ribbon, the last touch I added was some faux berries in purple to carry the deep color over
My glittered pumpkins are still going strong and you can find the printable to create your own HERE.
Gold candles dress up the look with an extra touch of glam.
I love baking and especially love making these pumpkin spice cupcakes this time of year. These are so delicious they make a great dessert, but also are just perfect for morning muffin.
I candied some walnuts to put on top for all the nut-lovers in my family. Scroll down for the super easy recipe!!
Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting and Candied Walnuts:
- 19 oz white cake mix
- 4 eggs
- 2 small Pumpkin Spice instant pudding mix
- 1/2 c oil
- 1/2 hot water
- 1 3/4 c libbys pumpkin
Mix all ingredients until just blended. Bake cupcakes in preheated oven at 350 for 15 minutes (times may vary - toothpick should come out slightly crumbly and moist).
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 1 stick salted butter
- about 6 cups of powdered sugar to desired texture
- 1/2 t vanilla
- cinnamon to taste
- 1 1/3 cups walnuts
- 1/2 c maple syrup
- 1 t vanilla
- salt to taste
- all space to taste
- white sugar to taste
- cinnamon to taste
Stir maple syrup with walnuts and vanilla over preheated pan over medium high heat. Stir constantly until maple syrup is completely cartelized on walnuts. Salt to taste. Remove from heat and place over wax paper, spread apart. Spoon white sugar all over and spices to taste. Add salt if needed. Once walnuts are no longer tacky, toss in bag with sugar, salt, and spices. Keep tossing as walnuts dry completely. Let stand for a few hours before consuming.
I hope you enjoyed this and can find something inspiring to take from it and use at your own table for your next gathering. I appreciate you stopping by my blog and hope you return! Happy Fall!
