Between Naps on the Porch Tablescape Thursday but I was motivated after reading some blogs today. I started this at 4:45 just when I was rushing around to make some kind of dinner. ( Which actually turned out to be really good!)
I didn't even have my camera and it was evening so please forgive if it is dark . I used my iphone.
- A vintage tablecloth always is a good way to begin right? That I can do... ( I am a vintage tablecloth addict!!)
I just love the workmanship in this precious cloth!
- A centerpiece. I always have trouble deciding on that one.
Or should I use a flower ?
It's raining out side and I just put a pork roast on the grill.... yummy. That will be fun to run in and out checking on! Hubby sees what I am up to with the table and thinks we are having company.
- Digging out my vintage plates that I just love and really only use at Christmas time.
They are so pretty aren't they? And I was lucking enough to get a setting for 12, way back about ten years ago on a thrifting excursion, but I am not whipping that all out now. Heck I don't even have the leaf in the table. They will all see the light at Christmas Dinner.
So this will be simple setting for 4 people.
A pretty water goblet from the dollar store ( or is that a wine glass? ) I really am no expert!! I'm pretty sure it is for water. And a gold napkin to bring a little bit of "Fall "to the table!
Now it is starting to look like something.
Can't forget the silverwear!
I hear some rumbling... When's dinner mom?.. Is that for us? What's the occasion?
.....10 minutes kids
Should I let them? Or set the kitchen table?... Maybe I will just add one more plate..
ummm the buffet.. Yes I still love the cut glass.
And the cocktail ( whiskey cantor)
