It is "Tablescape Thursday" again over at "Between Naps on the Porch," and I am thankful to Susan for hosting this wonderful event!
Today, you are getting two for one! I wanted to share a beautiful tablescape my mom did with her Franciscan "Apple," and one I did with a fruit pattern by Sakura called "Sonoma."
I must tell you that my mom does not try at this. She just puts it all together so effortlessly. I try...then move things around... then try again... then get different plates, then a different centerpiece, and so on. She just puts it on the table and it turns out beautifully. Plus, she has lots of beautiful things to use, and all of them are special in some way. Enjoy...
Here we go with mine...You might notice I always have the table bare. I really like to see the wood because it is so rustic and warm. I will use a table cloth, though, I promise, when I get out the Minton bone china:-) We do actually use our tablescapes. I generally will do one, and we use that dinnerware for the week.
I have seen people put the flatware on these placemats, but I kind of like things on or off, and there is just not enough room to have it all on, so I put it to the side. If any of you have some ideas or suggestions about that, let me know!!
There you have two different apple-themed settings!
Next week I have a huge treat as my mom and I are doing a table for a festival that promises to be fabulous! I am so excited about doing it with her and also excited about seeing the other tablescapes. I promise lots of photos and a lot of bling!
Thanks for stopping by:-) Anita
