Goodness, it’s been two weeks since I posted a tablescape, well a regular one at least! Last week, I quickly threw one together since we were preparing for Hurricane Isaac and the week before I shared my coffee station.
Since it’s a 105 degrees outside and we’re still overcome with love bugs, I had to set the table inside. I think this tablescape would have looked better in the dining room but my tablecloth wouldn’t fit the table.
This is the first time I’ve used the Danish Modern flatware I purchased from the auction. As soon as I saw this tablecloth I thought of this flatware. I purchased it at a local store called Dirt Cheap. All the items are new but sold at a discount but you have to dig which I don’t like. Once I realized they sold a lot of napkins and tablecloths I started checking in often and purchased a lot of nice ones ranging from $1 to $5. Most of them are from Target.
Once I started arranging things, the table started going in a different direction. The black plates reflect the trim around the wood chargers. The pretty blue napkins that I would months ago at a thrift store for $2 matched the table perfectly.
Once I set the silver-plated salt and pepper shakers, I realized that the silver looked really good on this table!
In came the champagne bucket, tarnish and all! To bring in a little more brown, I used a set of iron birds that Hunter gave me last week.
Iced tea glasses by Gorham completes the table.
TIP OF THE DAY: Love bugs are hard to clean off the windshield, to make the job easier, use a dryer sheet.
