Weekend Tablescape: Earthenware Naturals

Table | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7
I’ve always found laying the table a relaxing activity. When I lived at home it soon became tradition that I would lay the table before dinner (hey, it got me outta the washing up!) and as I grew older – and discovered my interest for interiors – I began experimenting with tablescape designs. In the lead up to Christmas I would gather left over baubles and ribbons and for birthdays I would hunt for seasonal pieces, all of which I would use to compliment our existing tabletop pieces. With a change in seasons just weeks away, I thought I’d pull together inspiration for a trans-seasonal tablescape: the saturated, nautical blues of high summer have been swapped out for washed-out navy hues and fall-like, harvest-inspired textures replace silky linens – the perfect table for the final alfresco dinners of the year. What are your weekend plans, folks?

    I love this look, these are the kind of things you can find at a thrift store/charity shop, which I'm a bit fan of. Love Toast too. πŸ™‚
    Do you have any great thrift stores where you live?

    Once made a birthday basket for my sister with napkins with some ribbon (dunno how number 6 is called in english) I had little tags on them with pictures of us together πŸ˜‰
    This weekend err… I spent the morning at the Noordermarkt for food and antics and watched some of the Gay parade that was held in the canals today.. one big party downtown today.

    Napkins and salad/dessert plates are my weakness. I have WAY too many of them but I find they are the easiest way to jazz up a table setting. This post has got me thinking that I really need to start planning for the holidays…..
