This beautiful tablecloth has served me well over the last month. I placed it on the dining room table as a foundation for all the treats, snacks and beverages it would hold during wedding week. Even though it’s on the table in the formal dining room, it’s also served as a repository for wedding gifts, decorations brought in from Charisse’s wedding venue and various electronic devices.
With 10 people in the house, there was a bit of organized chaos and much of the formality usually given to the living and dining room was set aside for a while. Everybody was home, it was a wonderful time for our family and celebrating the newlywed couple was most important. We’re getting back to our everyday routine, went to the wedding of our niece last week and are gearing up for our trip to Dallas next month.
During this breather, I decided to get my house back in order, literally and figuratively. I decided to send use my pretty tablecloth in a beautiful setting rather than send it back to the linen closet right away. The color of the poppies and the green leaves and vines are perfect as the summer season winds down.
While at Michaels recently couldn’t resist buying the white chargers. I didn’t have any in my stash and at .59 this was a no brainer purchase. My goal was to keep the table simple so I only added a white dinner plates over wrapped with a burnt orange napkins from Pier 1. They are topped with white bowls.
With simplicity in mind I only used one green goblet for a pop of color. This tables includes so many favorites and my Big Lots flatware is surely one of them. The swirled design on the handles mimics the movement of the vines on the tablecloth. Perfect symmetry.
In the center of the table, there is a dessert stand holding several faux blooms and on each side, there are votive holders with a vine motif. And that’s it! There’s lots of catching up to do and I have lots more to share with you. I would love for you to share and pin this post. Thanks a bunch!
Speaking of sharing, I’m sharing my Summer Bliss Table at the following link parties.
