Southwestern Tablescape

Pat wanted a change from the usual "flowers in the center" table that we normally do. So, she came up with a very different tablescape this week.
Pat started with a burlap tablecloth to add texture






The luncheon and bread/butter plates are "Ivory" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin


For more texture, Pat used denim-covered chargers and matching napkins






Where it came from:
Burlap Tablecloth - from Linentablecloth.com two years ago
Denim Chargers - from Michael's last year
Brown Dinner Plate - "Martillo Almond" from Pier 1 two years ago
Luncheon Plate - "Ivory" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin from Macy's three years ago
Accent Plate - "La Mesa" by Fitz & Floyd from eBay and Replacements.com
Bread/Butter Plate - "Ivory" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin from Replacements.com
Flatware - "Twist" by Gourmet Settings from TJMaxx last year
Glassware - Brown "Clarion" by Lenox from my collection (I've had these goblets since 1977)
Denim Napkins - Handmade by Pat
Napkin Rings - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond several years ago

Summertime Tablescape

Since Pat had a very busy week and even busier weekend, she decided to "take the easy way out" with this week's table. (Not that Pat does anything the easy way,) to quote her, she just "put it together" with an old Fitz & Floyd accent plate that we own as the inspiration.



Flatware is "Montana" by Gourmet Settings


The luncheon plate is "Sunflower" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin

Another one of Pat's "go to" plates is this inexpensive dinner plate from Pier 1 - Cinnamon "Martillo"



Every serious tablescaper has a set of these sage green glasses in his/her cupboard - from the Dollar Store. Besides being inexpensive, they are so versatile.

We found these flower pot napkin rings for fifty cents each at Bed, Bath, and Beyond last year
