#1-Welcome to my table!....With this setting I have used a piece of scrapbooking paper as a placemat, a dishtowel for a napkin( a new one!), & twine & a packing label as my placecard!....This is my everyday "white ironstone", a jelly jar is serving as a votive cup & I stole the crock of hydrangeas from my living room end table!...The feeling is warm, inviting, especially when faux raspberries are scattered about!
Hello Friends, I hope you have all enjoyed the start of a new week!.....As promised in my July newsletter, "Living Little" with Heidi..... I am posting tonight about pretty "summer tablesettings"!......I am a few days "tardy" posting, since our days have been overtaken with warm weather activities, so please forgive me!......As I mentioned in my newsletter, I LOVE setting beautiful tables!...Now this doesn't mean fancy, expensive tablesettings, but instead "everyday" ones that are simple & easy to put together!....These are lovely settings that are meant for your daily meals! Afterall we all know that food tastes much better when you use cloth napkins & dine by candlelight!
Tonight I am sharing with you a few of my favorite "tablesetting ideas"!...I have photographed 3 placesettings that are very typical of what I enjoy doing!...& remember my "Living Little" philosophy, these are all ideas that take very little time, space or money! So what could be better! My hope is to inspire & share what has worked for me!...."Happy Tablesetting All"!......All my best!....Heidi XO
Here is a closer peek at my blue/white dishtowel napkins!...Dishtowels are wonderful to use, since they are large, absorbent & always made in the most lovely checks & plaids!....& the added bonus is this...after you use them for a time as napkins, they can be repurposed as true dishtowels!.....
