Pumpkins' Last Stand

My pumpkins have really served me well since the
beginning of October when I started my
Halloween decorating. 
If you would like to see my Fall decorations, here is my blog post Fall-i-fying.

Then they transistioned into just Autumn decor.
Now that Thanksgiving is over, it's time to say
goodbye to my pumpkins but I had one more job for
them to do on the last Saturday of November.

My favorite team is Auburn who's colors are orange and blue.
On Saturday, we were playing our across-the-state rival,
Alabama in the biggest game of our season.
Wanting to show my true colors (even though we are having
a "down" season), I realized that if I piled all my
pumpkins up outside, that makes a fairly large pile of
the color orange.  Then all I did was add some blue bows
to all that orange on the front porch.

The wreath is almost all orange too so it got a bow.

The mailbox got some Auburn balloons to go with the
(faux) orange leaves and the still blooming
kinda blue-ish clematis.

Inside, I added some more Auburn colors for table-gating
before and during the game...we just watched on TV this year.
My Auburn chips and dip set. 

Orange and blue beer boxes. 
We like to put an orange wedge in Blue Moon beer while watching Auburn games.


I bought this beer strictly for the color of the boxes but I'm sure it will get drunk at some point.

Fun centerpiece of an Aubie the Tiger balloon.
Food was eventually added to the table too.

It's kinda confusing but Auburn's mascot is not only a tiger
but War Eagle too.  The eagle flies over the field before
home games in Auburn, Alabama.
This is a picture I took of the eagle flying before the game on TV.
Here is a one minute video of the eagle flying before a game if you would like to see her in action.

We had to cheer a lot before the game 'cause once the
game got started, we didn't have much to cheer about.
This is also a picture taken of the TV while the team was coming out on the field.


This is my daughter and me with our Auburn tatoos.
Auburn did lose the game but Alabama is ranked #2 in the nation right now...
we weren't really expecting to win this year. 

So farewell, my pumpkins...you will have to go now...
all the neighbors are putting up their Christmas decorations
(and some of you are, well, getting moldy).

I am sharing my Auburn table-gate setting at

I have just found your blog and I LOVE it. Thank you. I love the Auburn idea (even though I am a huge BAMA fan), but my mom is a huge Auburn fan as you. So I plan on sharing your blog with her. Thank you for all of your blogs and giving great directions.
