Sunflower Tablescape

Early this morning I decided to create some sort of tablescape to go with the new gold dinner plates I bought last week. Since the plates are a sunflower color, I thought they were perfect for a fall themed table.




















This blue glass went perfectly with the placemat. However, it reminds me more of a nautical theme than an autumn theme. I also need something with a bit more visual weight on top of that salad plate..




I'm liking this with my autumn leaf glasses.The brown soup cup on top of the salad plate gives me the visual weight I need to anchor the setting. It looks a little too weighty right now, but I when I add more of the same dark pottery, it will balance out.


I like a cloth napkin inside the glass, but with the leaf design on this particular glass that does not work. If I put the napkin in the glass, you can't see the leaves. After pondering that for a few minutes I came upon the idea to fold the napkin into a triangle and put it inside the soup cup.
Voila!

I like it.

I went outside and picked some of my sunflowers and put them in a dark pottery pitcher that matched the soup cups, added a few candles and I was finished.


I love this little donkey vase. He worked perfectly on this table.







And dinner is served

Valentine Quilt Tablescape

I made this quilt. I've made many quilts for my king-size bed. I am always trying to find other uses since I can only put one at a time on my bed.
This one makes a nice table covering for Valentine's Day.


DH came home from the grocery store with another bouquet of flowers (beautiful bright daisies). I decided now was the time to do the valentine table.

I used this very old flower vase with a cute couple of children in love for the centerpiece.
