Using things we collected from our own homes, we created a tablescape featuring old linens, mismatched place settings, antique silver flatware and vintage photographs.
This place setting featured red transferware.
Green depression glass compotes were used at each place setting.
The table was covered with a lace tablecloth, and each place setting was set on top of a hand appliqued placemat.
We each brought photographs of our grandmothers to display.
Ecru fabric held in the back with an antique brooch was draped over the chairs, and the chair backs were covered with antique hand embroidered pillow cases. Some of us brought vintage hats, handbags and gloves to to sit in the chairs. After all, our grandmothers would not have been seen without their hats and gloves.
You can find more beautiful tablescapes at Between Naps on the Porch. Most of these women spend hours creating their beautiful tables just for Tablescapes Thursday. I'm envious of their creativity. For my first effort, I took the easy way out and used something I had already done.
