We would be a party of eight for dinner...therefore I needed the leaf in my table...and I don't have many long cloths...and I'm always up for a challenge. So there you have it. This tablescape started, of course with the cloth.
Without a lot of colors to work with, I still needed to add interest.
Certainly, my dark brown woven chargers would work well with my...
....favorite plain white plates. And yes, some brown linen napkins add some richness.
Just then I remembered a hidden treasure tucked away and just perfect for this table.
I found these truly gorgeous Lenox brown water and wine goblets at a second hand store! I remember that day well...I felt like I had won the lottery. Things were now looking up for this table. As much as fresh flowers are a nice gesture, so is that special little table decoration that is the perfect find...
...like these adorable corn husk flowers that I found at Serenade, a lovely home decor and gift shop right here in Wheaton. They were definitely the final touch this table needed. I simply tucked them around my very versatile candle centerpiece,
(Crate...a few years back). What do I think of my beige table now? Well, I am rather pleased. Instead of bland, I do feel my table felt warm and inviting.
Please join me each and every week at the following parties. And please, please remember to visit me next week for a very special posting...the one year anniversary of Tabletop Stories!
