Now, on to tablescapes. I had planned to do this tablescape earlier, but I never got around to it. So here it is, a garden tablescape.
My husband asked me why I wanted to use this old table, but I believe it still has charm, with it's uneven boards, and rustic feel. I used three short runners and added cute little garden-themed pots.
I just bought some herbs to plant, so I popped them into these containers and used them as centerpieces. The actual plants don't match the words, but we can always pretend...
My herbs of choice are cilantro, basil, and parsley.
Salad plates were made in Italy and I purchased them a while back at Home Goods. The dinner plates are Fitz and Floyd. Each place had a bulb placecard holder with a tiny bouquet, which added a bit of color. I decided not to use chargers because the table is narrow, and there wasn't much room.
Since rain threatened, we did not eat at the table, so I didn't write on the placecards.
Each plate has a different design.
I used a simple silverplate pattern along with a plain stemmed iced beverage glass.
I found these napkin rings at an estate sale. I had every intention of spray painting them with oil rubbed bronze spray paint, but never got around to it.
Water glasses or as I like to use them, red wine stems, are Fostoria Pagoda.
I hadn't planned to use candles, but I remembered these little garden chair votive holders, so I used them on the table.
A few more pictures . . .
