We started with these pewter cups I had but changed them out. Just wanted to show you the yardstick ribbon I found at Hobby Lobby. So cute huh? I can’t believe I don’t have more pictures. There was an event following us and we did not have time to take any. It felt like a contest to see how fast we could break those tables down. Oh well….such is life.
The next one was a Brunch. We used all of my vintage cream ware and vintage silver.
Cream vintage tablecloth. Then my sister made me those burlap place mats. More on that later. 3 large pitchers in the middle and we used the small ones for the napkin and silverware. Then placed a piece of rosemary in with it.
Got those cute little place card holders at World market.
Canning jars with sand, votive and twine wrapped around. Dang we forgot to light the candles. That’s OK cause my hair was on fire we were working so fast so that was enough flame in one room.
I really can’t believe I don’t have better pictures. Sometimes I am a dingbat. But lets get back to those place mats. Let me show you some more that my sister made. She wants to sell them and I told her to go on Etsy to do that. No she wants me to do it. Right….like I don’t have enough to do. Get in line girly……..
Here are the cream ones and then she has black and white. These are not square like mine.
The black ones. Cute huh?
Oh yeah…2 more things to say that I am off…..I have collected vintage sterling silver over the years. None of it matches and I probably only paid $10-$12 dollars for each piece. I love to set the table with it [once a decade] when I entertain. That could be a whole post so I should probably save this. Think I will. Never mind.
And the last thing…..If you have read my blog back in June BH&G came to shoot my house. Well, they finally told me it is going to run in the May issue. That same month they are debuting an app for the IPAD [which I desperately want] where you can see more pictures of homes in the mag and…..watch me shop at Scott’s! Uh Huh….they are filming me on Thursday shopping and I will be giving away all of my secret’s. OH yeah “top secrets”……sacred…..stuff no one knows about. Except 1/2 the population of the southeast!!! OK…..I wish they had of given me time to hire an acting coach. Seriously people I am a bit frazzled about this. Maybe I could turn it into a SNL sketch…..and get a stand in. And, at first they wanted me to wear the same outfit I wore for the photo shoot. For real…that was June and this is December and we are having a really cold spell here in the ATL. Capris and a white t shirt. Nope. Not gonna work for me.
I’ll let you know how it goes….
