It is easy to set a table when you have beautiful flowers as your inspiration. Some good friends sent us this gorgeous bouquet for my father-in-law's services last week. As soon as we brought them home, I took them out of the florist's foam and put them in water. Flowers in foam don't last nearly as long as those in water.
I always think of Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life when I see sunflowers!
I've had this table runner for years.
I thought it was a fun choice to use with the colorful flowers.
I found the Mikasa Red Berries salad
plates at TJMaxx a few months ago.
I paired them with Crate and Barrel red dinner plates and
my frequently used American Atelier white
plates along with round red placemats.
My every day stainless, garage sale wine glasses and
napkins of my mother's finish the table setting.
The vintage cream and sugar set are
Occupied Japan. My father-in-law gave them
to me the last time we took him to his home.
The quartz fruit my parents bought for me on a trip to Mexico.
Simple votives are the only candles on the table.
I am joining Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch
for Tablescape Thursday.
Please stop in to say hello to our hostess!
