In earlier posts I have mentioned how fortunate I am to have a sister in law who I have so much in common with. Connie and I certainly share our love for dishes. It makes for fun family dinners when we both appreciate putting a table together with love and fun.
We are members of a neighborhood group that gets together every month with a program and dessert. Traditionally in May our meeting is a Salad Supper with no program. This week the meeting is in my home. We are having a program of sorts ~~~ A Tablescape Program! Connie and got together a couple of times to gather our thoughts AND our dishes! We knew our group would love seeing tablescape ideas.
Here is our starting point
Connie has four little Bistro tables which we hauled over to my house so we could set up little vignettes.
So as not to make this post too long, I will just show you three tables this week.
A Seaside Table
Pooling our dishes and accessories, we had so much fun putting together ideas people could use to set up a full size table.
On the chair next to the table we continued on. Isn’t this white fish something else? He came from Z Gallerie. If we had a full size table the fish would be the center of attention.
Next up was a black and white table that truly evolved by pulling a little of this and a little of that together.
We didn’t intend for it to have a bridal flair but that’s how it ended up.
The beginning point was the black, white and silver dish that I found while thrifting.
Next up is our Black and White and Red Casual Table
It’s funny how the tables began. Connie was over at Easter and saw my cherry salt and pepper shakers. She mentioned her black and white polka dot dishes. Oh! Then I mentioned I also had cherry juice glasses.
Pulling from my stash I ran across the little crisp white placemats with cherries (thrifted). We also thought since this table had a country charm about it we would use my old ice cream glasses. Filled with cotton balls to represent ice cream, we added a cherry and a tall vintage silver spoon.
Do you remember awhile back I did a post on my black and white kitty with the mysterious hole in the bottom? She fit right in with this table.
Next week I will show you more of our tables.
It’s fun to actually use all these dishes we accumulate and have such excitement pulling everything together.
