I'm thinking of my Mom in a special way today. Earlier this week she had to have a minor surgery due to an injury a few weeks ago. She'll be ok and is finally starting to heal, but I've never felt farther away! Mom lives in California, and boy do I wish I was close enough to help her out!
I've seen some beautiful tablescapes around Blogworld. I thought I would try my hand, seeing that I have beautiful dishes inherited from my Grandma, and because setting the table was always my job while growing up. I would get way into it, going around the house to find things that fit my theme. Wish I had some of those in photos now!
Enough already, let's get to the pretties!
Welcome! Won't you take that seat by the window?
Here are my Grandma's dishes.
They're called Desert Rose.
Each of us has a rose in a small glass vase.
What's for dinner?
Garden goodies, of course!
And fresh homemade bread.
Isn't this piece sweet?
Our thrift store birdhouse centerpiece.
I made the double table runner out of a tablecloth I found at Target for $7. There are actually three pieces, so I can use them all if the table is expanded to seat 8. Oh, I hemmed the runners using my Grandma's sewing machine! The brown chargers are also from Target, the silverware is a set I found at Ross 10 years ago, and the glasses are a Princess House set that my Mom gave me. And yes, I would normally serve an entree!
Thank you for joining us!
