I had such fun arranging my first tablescape awhile ago, I thought I'd try it again. This time, I built the setting around dishes I found at a Goodwill store when Wonderful Hubby and I were on another adventure.
These white plates and bowls have a delicate green and gold floral pattern.
I added the burlap runner to keep the setting less formal....after all, we are dining al fresco! My daylilies are still blooming so I included them to add a hint of whimsy. Aunt Edith and Uncle Jimmy's flatware make another appearance.
My hydrangeas are starting to fade so they blend well with this setting. I also found some meadow weed, Queen Anne's lace and mint to fill out this quick arrangement. They are displayed in a pitcher from Wonderful Hubby's grandmother. The glassware is from Dollar General and Michael's. Precious Daughter purchased the green candle holders for our anniversary celebration. Wonder when she'll decide to take them with her???
Mr. Champy, one of our border collies, was helping me. He was SO interested! He's such a mellow, easy going fellow.
We have been enjoying LOVELY weather lately! A year ago today, the temperature was 108 in St. Louis. Today, the high is expected to reach 82! With these temperatures and this setting, I think we'll be eating outside this evening!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
