Do you like candy corn?
I do, and I crave it every Fall season. Doesn’t candy corn say Fall to you?
I used this same table covering in the Hoot Owls at Dusk Tablescape last week.
The alternative was solid white…sort of boring in contrast to the plaid. So, plaid it is for round two!
You may remember this candy corn gourd from last year. Gourds are so easy to paint! No need for taping and perfection…free style works great.
Here’s how I used the candy corn gourds last year for our Fall Farmhouse Porch Decor. I admit it. I may be a little over-the-top candy corn crazy.
The plate stack follows the candy corn color pattern. The juice and beverage glasses are those we use every day in The Land of Making Do. The mug, dinner, and salad plates are our every day Mikasa Antique White dishes, as well.
Candy corn is casual…why wouldn’t our table be the same?
The old yellow chargers came from a nearby antique booth – same shopping trip when I found the Lost Lavender China Lives set. We’ve never actually used the chargers because they sit at a slant. Imagine chasing rolling peas!
The white flatware is for summer dining outside – also from Wal-Mart. I found the place mat set on clearance at Ross last year.
Candy corn cups – again, Wal-Mart. We use these plastic stacking cups all the time – like for individual servings of salsa, and recently the Fall Spice Caramel Apple Dip. Yum!
I folded each napkin into the shape of a candy corn. Gross grain ribbon adds the orange color I have so little of.
The orange place mats just about cover it for my orange decor. Do you have a lot of orange? Do you like orange?
I’m not an orange decor or orange clothing person, but I do like it.
And since I like candy corn so much, I planted this candy corn vine a few years ago. It makes me smile when it starts blooming every summer!
Isn’t it fun? It’s also known as the cigar flower or a firecracker vine. I get it.
I’ll stick with candy corn vine, though. When something makes you smile, plant it, decorate with it, enjoy it. 🙂
What’s your favorite Fall candy? Come on…don’t be shy. I’m really curious!
This candy corn tablescape is partying at Tablescape Thursday. I hope you’ll join us!
