OUTDOOR ANNIVERSARY TABLESCAPE


Our temperatures have been great this week. Down in the mid to low 80's. Perfect weather for an outdoor dinner to celebrate our anniversary. You may have seen photos of my 60's hairdo in my wedding pictures in my previous post

A TOILE DE JOUY TABLESCAPE

DINNER IN HOLLAND

TABLESCAPE

I bought those $5 potted Tulips for Easter.  One Tulip has sort of survived.  (There were two tulips when I started setting the table, but one of them fell apart before I took pictures.)

DINING IN THE FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE

French Tablescape 1

We found a nice little cafe in the French countryside.  As the waiter showed us our table, I snapped a few pictures of the decor.

ROMANCE ON THE TABLE

Romantic Table

Do you think my sweetheart might object to a table set with pastels and floral decor?  For this table, I used my mother's table square over a lavender colored tablecloth.

PICNIC IN THE SNOWY WOODS

Tablescape in Winter

You may have seen my “winter in the woods” mantel in my previous post.  This week, we dined in the winter woods.  (I can’t believe that, once again, I forgot to light a fire before I took these pictures!)

HAPPY NEW YEAR TABLES

New Year Decor

I previously shared my mantel, decorated for our New Year’s celebration.  Another of our traditions (we are big on traditions) is to leave the lights on the Christmas trees after I remove the Christmas ornaments.  We then throw (I’m serious) New Year’s hats, streamers, beads, etc. onto the trees and turn them into New Year’s trees.

RED WHITE AND BLUE TABLE WITHOUT FLAGS

It’s not a patriotic tablescape; just a red, white, and blue tablescape.  No flags; just peacock feathers.  This will be short, since we have two granddaughters staying with us this week.

I’ve had the blue and white placemats for awhile and can’t remember where I got them.  The chargers were a gift from my friend, Susie.  I used a blue plate by Vietri as the dinner plate. A cobalt blue canister holds peacock feathers, which were given to me by my friend, Cindy, whose mother raised peacocks.

These chargers just seem too pretty to hide under plates.

Pressed glass soup bowls (estate sale) top a white plate by Gibson.  The blue and white flatware was from Kohl’s about three years ago.  Individual butter cloches were from an estate sale, and both styles of blue stems were from two different estate sales.

CHRISTMAS IN THE BREAKFAST ROOM

I used a Christmas throw as a table cover.

The rusticity of this lantern reminded me of a stable, so I set my little vintage Woolworth nativity figures inside it.

If you are a minimalist, close your eyes, or leave now!  I’m never a minimalist, but at Christmastime, even I admit I go a little overboard.  Of course, if you saw my “Santa Crazy” post here, you already knew that.

Quirky Three Kings mix with vintage and handmade cards, Santa, a bear, a snowman, and candy canes!  You can’t say I’m afraid to mix things up.

I’m so glad you stopped in to visit.  I would appreciate prayers for my daughter-in-law and unborn grandson.  The due date is in March, and she has been hospitalized with problems.  laurie

SPRING-LIKE DINING IN THE FALL

The weather is perfect for dining outside, but it sounds like cooler temps are on the way.  So, I set the table outside for an informal supper with friends.
