A Summer Tablescape
I had fun making this table scape on my custom made French farm house table. It was made to my dimensions by a local carpenter to fit the tiny apartment that I had been living in. While some day I hope to upgrade to a larger living space and purchase a much larger table, I think I’ll keep this one for now. The biggest problem with this table is how narrow it is. For family-style dining, the serving dishes have to be set out on the buffet.
The placemats and napkins are a country hen and chicken toile pattern which I purchased from One King’s Lane. I love the faux lemon trees!
The china pattern is Villeroy and Boch in the “Basket” pattern. Didn’t think the pattern was that big of deal until dinner was served on it at a five-star hotel in Paris! ooh-la-la! The napkin rings are from Williams-Sonoma.
The candles are in anduze pots, olive scented, from the long-gone Pierre Deux stores. Who misses them?! I sure do.
