Wow, Tablescape Thursdays is celebrating 100 weeks of tablescaping. I have not joined many of these because that is not my strong point and I don't have a gazillion dishes like most of you have. I love looking at your pretty settings though and am blown away by a lot of them.
This week Susan asked that for the 100th party that we do a tablescape outdoors or a glitzy party setting. Well, since it is soooo hot and sticky here these days if I were to set up a table outside between hot flashes I would be crying out like the witch in the Wizard Of Oz saying, I'm melting, I'm melting. We just couldn't have that now could we? So in order to stay cool and do an outdoor setting, I set up a table in the sunroom.
I thought we would just sit over here in front of the windows and still stay cool in the air conditioning.
I hope you will be comfortable here.
I pulled my bamboo table from the corner of the room over here and covered it in a matelasse coverlet and topped it with my recent vintage tablecloth purchase.
Everything I used I already had. Wicker charger, large white plates with vine pattern, scalloped green plates and red patterned plate that use to be a set belonging to my daughter and she didn't want them anymore.
Vintage white linen napkins from the flea market and dragonfly napkin rings which are appropriate next to our pond which has hundreds of dragonflies visiting daily.
Mikasa flatware that I have had for many years.
I cut some fresh flowers from the yard. A few crepe myrtle blooms and Rose of Sharon's added to my vintage coffee pot.
Using my LaRochere bee glasses and tea pitcher that I bought from CSN with the certificate I won.
The fluted glasses were purchased at World Market a couple of years ago on clearance.
Let me pour you some sweet ice tea.
Now the sun is really coming in. Hope you don't get hot here by the window. It won't last long.
Hope you enjoy the view from your seat.
