A Winter table scape
My thoughts were to use my extra large woven chargers with
my silver chargers . . .
I love the contrast of the rustic woven charger with the silver leaf
charger. . . . rather than use colored napkins, I decided to use
my vintage white linen napkins purchased many years ago.
Those antique hand carved utencils were a "had to have"
purchase from Joy over at http://savvycityfarmer.blogspot.com/
(She has an on line store that is not to be missed) As for the soup bowl,
I felt like a bit of color was in order and stayed with green which
was a gentle transition with the topiaries which were green.
I pulled out my vintage wooden floor grate and gathered
the accessories of the table in "tray form" Another bit
of texture that was pleasing. . .
Can you imagine the workman ship that used to go into
making just the floor grates in the home? Today they
have been repurposed . . . . but of course!
I then added a depression glass dome with
a battery operated tea light. . .
As for the great background of a carpet of snow . . .
Mother Nature in all of her winter glory finally
paid a visit.
Another element of 'old' was in order and taken from
the dining room . . . .a chippy and wonderful column base.
On this pedestal, a little container of pate, white porcelain
and pewter salt and peppers and a small vintage ceramic
clown for storing my pate knives.
ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR WEEKEND
