A few weeks ago, I posted about treating myself to a set of Cath Kidston plates.
Last week I had a weekday to myself. When does that happen? What to do?
I remembered there being a blog called Between Naps on the Porch, which features weekly tablescapes and thought it would be fun to take my time, set a pretty table and take photos. So I did.
Welcome to my first Tablescape Thursday. Okay, it's Wednesday but because I know I have the time right now, I'm getting my post together early on Tablescape Eve. I will officially link up via Mr. Linky (new to me) tonight.
I played around with coordinating a lively color palette, patterns and textures
Much of this post could be called Target Tablescape because the tablecloth (repurposed curtain panel), S&P shakers, napkin rings and yellow polka-dotted plates are all from good ol' Target.
I am loving Ball canning jars for summer drinks
Cath napkins from "the good" HomeGoods
How about a luncheon of simple favorites like tuna sandwiches, potato salad, watermelon with blueberries, crackers with hummus and tabouleh, lemonade or home-brewed iced tea, and cookies?
Together we'll have a ball!
Thank you so much to Susan for hosting. Check out Susan's beautiful blog for this and many more inspired ideas and weekly parties.
