Over the last couple weeks I have taken some fun pics of my dinner tables and haven’t shown them off yet! First group is from a “friendsgiving” dinner party that my friend thru. She did an amazing job on the tables. It was her first time hosting so many people at once but she pulled all her dinnerware together. Mixed it all up and the outcome was beautiful!
In a couple cases Mary used scrap fabric from around her house for table runners and just folded them to hide the edges! No one would have even known!
I love how she added the berry branches to the fall table – made it seem so cozy and added beautiful texture to the table!
I was excited she also pulled out her blue willow plates, since I bought some for her wedding!
This was my absotule FAVORITE table of the night. She layed a scarf over the top of the table as a little drop cloth! How creative! Loved all the print mixing she did with the napkins, plates and scarf. Such a traditional China setting changed into such an updated display. I obviously nabbed a spot at this table right from the beginning!
Next I have some pics from a date night at home.
Pulled out the Ralph Lauren China and mixed with some fun casual printed napkins!
I love setting a good table. this past weekend we also did our first Christmas dinner party. I will be sure to share pics coming up soon!
I saw these Juliska County Estate Accent Plates in Orange at one of my favorite home stores here in Milwaukee this weekend. They are so beautiful! I have seen the pattern before in blue and black but there is something about the unaccepted orange that I thought was really new and fresh. They inspire me to set a fall table.

I am so excited to share my table with you today! I wanted to mix all sorts of beautiful floral prints to make it bright and cheery. I used my grandmothers china dinner plates, mixed with my wedding china salad plates. I found the floral fabric a couple weeks ago and sewed simple table runners.
I picked up flowers from local grocery stores. I wanted to mix all sorts of colors and textures.
Didn’t it turn out nice? We had such a lovely evening. I love how all the floral layers played off each other. What do you think?
I love sunflowers. When I was a little girl every year my dad and I would plant them together and watch them grow. They are beautiful and I love mixing them with other bright fun colors. I think they will be perfect for my table this weekend.
Here is a sneak peak at what I am thinking…I picked up the below fabric a week or so ago and this past weekend I sewed them into dual table runners.
This is what I mean by the unexpected way for table runners….this is from my first pop up party a couple years ago see the post here.…
see? I like table runners the wide way not the length of the table. Anyway back to flowers…
I think something like these options would bring out all the fun bright colors of the table and be so pretty! Stay tuned next week to see how it all turns out!
I love summer picnics and my goal this summer was to take more advantage of them since we live in a condo and don’t have our own outdoor space. I was really excited to get some new picnic gear for my birthday, I posted about my inspiration here. I also pulled out the table coverlet I sewed from our Christmas dinner you can see here. I think it was a perfect drop cloth for our picnic!
We brought our mini weber grill and grilled steaks and vegtables in tin foil. It was a lovley evening!
