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…
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
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.
Enjoying a happy summer day!
