"April Cornell" table mums are back...

If you remember my post where I used the April Cornell Green napkins and daisy napkin rings HERE, you saw some pretty yellow mums in a basket.


I cut them off after they stopped blooming and planted them by the children's playhouse. They grew like crazy and bloomed just a few weeks ago. I finally brought them in to use on my table. They have been beautiful for weeks!


I decided to get out the Waverly "Sweet Pastimes" toile runner I made and it worked perfectly for the season. I have accessorized with vintage Hull and McCoy "Brown Drip" pottery. I put the vintage "Bakelite" flatware in a brown rooster crock, and napkins in a wrought iron holder.






 I thought I would share this with Marty for her "Tabletop Tuesday" party, so please go by there and visit her!

I am still behind in returning comments from last week due to my schedule at church and the tablescaping dinner Saturday night with my mom. But, I WILL get by to see all of you and visit your lovely blogs! I'll be posting the tablescapes from Saturday this week, so please come back by:-)

  2. Hi Anita, your vignette is just lovely. I love that runner. You asked about my sister's window trim. Most of her house does have white trim except she painted the trim around her family room brown when she painted all the doors brown. I am going to paint my doors brown and leave the trim white. I see that done all the time.

  5. Oh how pretty. Love the runner and the brown stoneware is fabulous. The mums are just wonderful. This is such a great idea for a tablecenterpiece. I could leave it like that all the time and really use everything. Stunning. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

  7. Mums light up any table. I had some that just bloomed after planting in June -- my sweet little one keeps on picking them and putting them in a vase near the kitchen sink. Lovely tabletop. Joni

  8. Aren't they the most vibrant things?? I love those mums and think the way you laid out the whole table is simple beautiful. I'm definitely looking forward to your tablescaping post from your adventure with your mom. I can only imagine what we're going to see!

  9. I love your inviting kitchen, Anita!
    so pretty... and you know I adore those roosters of yours :o)

    My mums lasted about a month indoors! Aren't they so hardy!

    Oh we had snow today too! Not so much here at our home, but south of here, there were two inches ~
    I hope you're having a warm and wonderful week*

  13. Lovely as always Anita! :-) I haven't been able to find just the right runner for my table and you are helping me realize I may just have to make it myself! This table looks so perfect for this time of year. Thanks for sharing another great inspirational vignette!
