Good morning! Are you ready for a new week? Just an update on the house…we got an offer and accepted it within 4 days of putting the house on the market!!! Woo hoo!! God is good! Now we just have to worry about the inspection, and hope nothing major comes up. We have been looking at houses and it is making my head hurt. 🙂 I know I am being pretty picky, but we will probably never buy another house, so I want this one to be one we will be in for a very long time. The right one will come along!
I set up a very simple tablescape for the blog this week. It’s a little difficult to come up with stuff to post since I am packing a lot of it up! But I do still have my dishes out, so you might be seeing a lot of place settings!
I used my white tablecloth and then used golden yellow and white napkins for the placemats. I have been wanting to try this out for awhile and I do like how it turned out. The plates on the bottom were the dishes I received for my wedding. They are called Blue Peony and are white with a little bit of blue around the edges and some flowers in the middle. I paired them with a grey plate and a smaller white plate. The napkins are kind of a greyish blue and I found some ribbon in my stash that was just the right color yellow. I used mismatched silverware this time. I have been picking up miscellaneous pieces from thrift stores when I see them. A mug for something warm and some iced tea finish it up.
For the centerpiece, I used a ceramic pot which looks like a stump and placed some sunflowers inside, with a few other various stems. I put some small pumpkins and gourds inside a black candle lantern. I added a couple others onto the galvanized tray.
I think the secret to a nice looking place-setting is the layering of the different pieces. It looks so nice to have all the different shapes and colors.
I hope you all have a great week and see you next time!
