Hi everyone! It looks like so many are gearing up for cooler weather, and although I LOVE Fall, I don't like not being able to use the outside space we have. This summer has been so hot we have not eaten outside as much...
...I love setting the table outside on the porch.
My grandparents ate meals outside pretty much all summer so it reminds me of them when we get to enjoy that simple pleasure.
Since I haven't really set any "fancy" tables outside this summer, I thought I would share some of my favorites from the last few years. Links to all these and more are HERE, or you can click on the link before each post.
This table was a mix of vintage depression glass and new Mikasa "Brava Yellow."
I love this 1956 Brookpark "Pink Hyacinth" melmac.
The girls and I enjoyed tea at this table...
These lilac dishes came with flour sacks to my grandfather's store.
Franciscan "Ivy" always reminds me of Ricky and Lucy...
A mix of Mexican Talavera, World Market and Mikasa "Italian Countryside" plates made this a really festive table.
There are certainly a lot of different looks, but also a lot of common elements in all of them.
Since I have not been setting tables outside, I have been busy inside making table runners, shopping totes, aprons, tea towels, etc., all inspired by my grandfather's country store here in Balsam, Knight's Store, which has been closed for years. I am so excited to be opening "Knight's Store" on etsy in a couple weeks with lots of beautiful vintage-inspired table linens, etc., so please stay tuned!
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I wish I had more time to visit and catch up on the many wonderful things you are all doing, but time seems to get away from me. Please stop by my Far Above Rubies facebook page if you have not been there, as I would love to hear from you:-)
I'll be joining:
