post 101! an unfussy tablescape
This is my 101st post! How can that be? Perhaps I lost track because it has been so busy around here. Last week my guys all took turns being sick. In between keeping everyone comfy and keeping the house in a decent state, I decided to fit-in a little down time, oddly enough, by playing around with a tablescape. I say "oddly enough" because I must have wiped-down the dining room table a million times over a few days but what did I choose to do while the boys watched a movie? Set the table! Last week was my first Tablescape Thursday and I thought it was so enjoyable.
As you can see my "dining room" is small and so I keep things very casual and simple.
And even though I love details, I don't care if say, the metal of my flatware matches the trim of my dishes or not.
I am using a valance as a table runner. For a quick centerpiece, I grabbed a potted plant from outside.
The floral patterned place setting is a lovely mis-match of pieces inherited from my Nana and my husband's great-grandmother.
(My boys drank water from the glasses pictured that night at dinner. They felt very dignified!)
Small clippings in bottles grouped together on a cake plate complete the "unfussification" of my tablescape. How about a simple champagne brunch?
