Tablescape Thursday ~ Having The Girls For Lunch Today
A few girlfriends are coming for lunch this afternoon, so I thought I'd use this table setting to participate again in Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan@Between Naps On The Porch. Please go to her blog to view all the beautiful dishes and creative table settings. Susan and her followers are all a font of wonderful ideas.
I started my table setting by using a rose patterned coverlet as a table covering. I thought it was pretty for a summer luncheon.
The flowers were actually the table centerpiece from a wedding that my son and daughter-in-law attended, my daughter- in-law very kindly gifted them to me, and I was happy to be able to use them for my lunch table.
I used my green everyday dishes as a charger.
Then I used these small white plates (that I had picked up in TJ Maxx) for our lunch plates.
The plates that I used for appetizers are an assortment of bargain store finds, flea market finds, and one belonged to my grandmother.
The glassware was picked up at a church sale for twenty-five cents apiece!
The glass pitcher (I'll be filling it with iced tea), the butter dish, and the cake plate all belonged to my grandmother.
The napkins were purchased at our local grocery store.
I'm using my everyday flatware which was purchased at Target earlier this year. And the little appetizer forks were purchased at Ikea.
The little bowls that I'll be using for condiments were purchased on sale at Anthropologie, and the little spoons are from Ikea.
The tray I'll be using for appetizers is a Shabby Chic design by Rachel Ashwell and sold by Target a few years ago.
And the tray I'll be using for sandwiches was purchased a few years ago at TJ Maxx.
I have a nagging feeling that I've forgotten something.
Well, I'm sure I've forgotten something, I always do! Can you think of anything?
Oh, well, we're all friends, I'm sure they'll forgive me. Enough fretting about the table anyway, I have to get busy in the kitchen now!
I am a homebody who does not like to roam far from home at all. I have not been Blessed with the gift of wanderlust. I will leave the touring and traveling to others as I prefer to stick close to home.
I love my life. There is not one person I can think of that I would want to change places with. The older I get the more comfortable I am with myself, and each day makes me more grateful for the Blessings God Has Bestowed on me. Truly, my cup runneth over.
