in our petite Dining Room On Crooked Creektt,
can be an e x t r e m e l y challenging.
that does not deter us from enjoying family dinners,
gatherings and entertaining in our 1970's Ranch Style Home.
One of my favorite homemaking tasks
is to set an inviting tablescape for the family and friends
that frequent our home.
I'm sharing a tablescape from my gently retired original blog. . .
On Crooked Creek.
It is my hope that you, dear friends and followers,
will continue to experience the journey of life
On Crooked Creektt (Take Two).
I began this simplistic Garden themed tablescape
by using a heirloom vintage white damask tablecloth.
I placed the natural organza linen hued square table topper
on a diagonal.
relaxing the atmosphere within the Traditional setting.
Scrunching the points of each corner between the place settings
allows for the highlighting of the embroidered motif.
One of my frequently used circular orange floral scalloped place mats
brings a dash of vibrant hues reflecting the plantings through the Garden Gate.
Bubble glass everyday stemware will suffice as our water goblets.
My delicate rose etched crystal liqueurs will hold a 'sparkling' refreshing drink.
Placing a triple folded napkin atop the dinnerware
balances the color palette throughout the the tablescape.
The menu tucked within also serves as a place card
and a memento of the evenings cuisine.
The unique centerpiece consisting of a cauliflower tea pot surrounded by statuary lidded urns invokes a whimsical ambiance.
On Crooked Creektt's Gardens Gingersnap and Creamy Ivory Tea Rose buds
combined with wisps of Purple Salvia fill petite white scalloped bud vases
extending the centerpiece with continuing colorful hues.
Everyday porcelain white dinnerware
combined with Oneida flatware keep clean~up to a minimum,
allowing "Mr. Ed" and I to linger around the table
or to stroll through the Gardens On Crooked Creektt alongside our guests.
Until next time. . .
