Today... I am showing you my very simply tablescape...
I have kept color to a minimum....
just lots of clean and simple white.
I used torn white cotton with a raw edge for my tablecloth,
and simple gingham placemats at each setting.
Lilacs are in bloom!
I wanted my tablescape to be all about them!
So... I made a giant bouquet!
in an old planter from the porch,
the planterbox is wrapped in an old tin ceiling tile,
I love the rustic feel it added to the simple table.
The whole dining room smells like lilacs..
the smell of SPRING!
I know... I really should show the place setting too..
My plates are simple and white.
The napkins are mix and match vintage,
with crocheted edging...
and the silverware is just our everyday stainless.
I will be leaving the table set like this..
as long as the lilacs hold up.
Since my husband works odd hours...
we will mostly be using the table for lunches.
So I will be using the white plates as chargers..
and bringing lunches in already "dished up".
I do hope we get to enjoy it at least once though,
with the sweet candlelight :-)
Today I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch
