I set this table for just the two of us to celebrate my sweet husband's yearly joyous commemoration of his birth.
Setting up our dining experience in a corner under some trees made it seem a bit secluded and special.
The placemat is a juxtaposition to the delicate crochet lace of the tablecloth.
Simple table decor - a nut tree, candles and a spoofed up pumpkin!
A mix of dishes keeps the setting from being too far out of my cowboy's comfort range!
Cute corn husk covered pumpkins for some fun in the bowl.
My favorite silverplate, the viney placemat, brown transferware, texture via the white plate.. so many favorites!
One craft pumpkin, some antique white craft paint, dirty water (paint and lots of water) to settle in the brush strokes of the white paint, some velvet leaves and a plaid ribbon. You can do this too!
Wooden candleholder form the coffee table topped off with a votive holder and a candle.
Tarnished sterling.. salt and pepper dressed in their finest.
So mad there were only 3 left.. I LOVE these bowls.
I love this tablecloth. So much. Mom's handiwork was always so exquisite.
.Our favorite handblown goblets..
It takes a lot of nuts (and one big one) to cover a styrofoam tree. I recommend brown spray paint on the tree first! Then don't use low temp hot glue.. Just sayin...
The rosemary in the pot gives off such a wonderful scent when you brush up against it. Love white pumpkins.. love them. yes i really think i love them.
Ralph just does the best fabrics! Love his napkins.
I hope you enjoyed our little fete a deux to celebrate a special understated event.
