A Simple Charming Table Setting

July 18, 2019

 

A table setting for a gathering of friends

I’m a huge fan of pretty table settings.

Table settings that include fresh flowers and

candles parading down the center,

pretty dishes, and fine stemware.

On The Table

A simple centerpiece…

Flowers from the garden. Peonies to be exact!

Peonies with their ruffled edges that speak feminine frills.

Laying the foundation with a rustic, weathered board…

 

board with candles

 

next came trimmed lilac branches for the greenery

and copper votive candles.

Candles a plenty!

Tucking copper votives here and there.

Using found vintage silver sugar bowls and creamers

for the flowers and votive candles.

Dried roses were added for an additional pop of color.

Even peonies dropping their petals are pretty.

Not an expensive center piece with candles look perfect!

Maybe… perfectly imperfect!

A Mix and Mingle

 

Side view of table

A mix and mingle of flatware and plates.

The vintage plates with their pretty and delicate blue and gold trim

and the new cabbage salad plates –

all a mix and a mingle.

Tied together with chambray blue napkins.

A fun, pretty place setting for a casual luncheon.

Fun stemware; clear with green dots.

Candles in various sizes glowing away provide the needed ambiance.

No matter how you set your table,

A pretty centerpiece…perfectly imperfect,

good food, good friends…

It’s all about creating special moments,

making memories where conversations and laughs

that will linger a bit longer.

I'm a dreamer. I love taking photos of things that inspire me. My horses, cows, flowers, and my rustic and refound décor. I like taking hikes, love junkin', and team roping and my new outdoor love is kayaking still waters.
