More of that Fall stuff

Oh I love November, it's 2nd only to October. All things Halloween have been removed and packed away and by packed away I mean its sitting in boxes waiting for hubby to bring it up to the attic. Now my house is just filled with all the decor from my Fall Harvest Potluck dinner party. Gourds, pumpkins and leaves - oh my! I decided to use the bulk of the centerpiece on our table against our couch (it's actually a sideways bookshelf). I gotta say although it does look a tad busy, it really does make the main living space in my house feeling decorated for the Fall. And the best part? It all gets to stay up for another 3 weeks. Don't you just {heart}the Fall!
The decor is sitting on a burlap runner that I made last year.
Isn't this pumpkin the coolest pumpkin EVER? I know I went on about it previously, but I'm still loving it, so deal. I would really like to plant the seeds from this pumpkin, but have no idea when and where. Lazy ass question - Does anyone know if you let a pumpkin rot, that it will grow again next year? I am sure the squirrels will eat most of it but I'm just wondering, cause I'm lazy and all. I would love to have it come back next year. Someone mentioned on one of my other posts that this is a pumpkin called a speckled pumpkin? Makes sense to me.
I put little white pumpkins in the lantern. Can you stand how adorable they are?
Metal turkey candle holders. I love the patina on this. I added the raffia bows myself. Mad bow skills here.
Cornucopia with real gourds mixed with fake. You can't even tell the difference, can yah, can yah?
The whole table.
Luck for you I have a loft over this room so I was able to provide an aerial shot. Can't say I've seen many aerial shots of a table before. Yes, the runner is a little crooked and the pillows are laying all over. Keeping it real yo! :)
Hey it might not be perfect, but I love it.
