Farmers Market Tablescape

 I've been using this old Lang calendar for tablescape inspirations....and this was the picture from June.  It reminds me of our weekly trip during the summer months to the local vegetable stand.  So I've named this tablescape the "Farmers Market" table.

So, welcome to the table set for a fresh from the garden (or veggie stand) supper.

 I found this cabbage leaf set of bowls and dishes a couple of years ago at a local antique/thrift store.  They had a few little chips here and there....nothing that a little dab of green nail polish didn't cover up.

Here's my vegetable centerpiece....who says a centerpiece can only contain flowers and candles?   Not me!

 Now you just know you would have to serve a salad at this table!

Actually, I have to confess that a few things in the basket are faux - but mostly everything is real, and much of it will go into a salad this evening.

 Let's peel the layers of dishes....starting with the salad bowl....

....cabbage leaf underplate....

white Gibson dinnerplate.....

 basketweave chargers......

...flatwear from Target a few years ago....loved these and they were purchase by the piece for 99 cents.

 I found the green goblets a few years ago at Goodwill.

 I can't even remember wher I found the green cloth napkins many years ago....the tablecloth was a Goodwill find.

I love the bounty of fresh vegetables from the summer!  Can't wait until the Hanover tomatoes are in their peak here soon.....I'll be cooking up a tomatoe pie soon! 

See ya.....and remember to eat your veggies!

This week I'm joining Tablescape Thursday with Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.

"Lasagna Western" Tablescape

I'm sure many of you remember the old "spaghetti westerns" of the 60's?  Well, since our family "cowboy" our son-in-law Brett, requested lasagna for his birthday dinner....I've titled this table.....

                       ....the "Lasagna Western" tablescape

"howdy pardner"

                  I've layered this cowboy fun tablecloth......

                   ....over this red checkered tablecloth.

           Pewter charger plates with red plates and black metal flatware....

       .....pewter goblets and red bandanas make great napkins.


          ......did you know that lasagna was cowboy grub?

Wishing our birthday cowboy lots of good luck with a centerpiece of lucky horseshoes.

 Looks like this little cowpoke might just be trying to rope a couple.....

                .....of cute little cowgirls!

   Happy Birthday to our wonderful sil Brett....he's starting seminary in a few weeks and we're so excited for this new journey for him and our daughter and family....

             See ya!
