Everyday Tablescape

Welcome to another go at Tablescape Thursday. I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. I've been so inspired by all the other tablescapes. You must check them out.

Today I decided to set the table with my everyday dishes. The plates, etc. are from Target (5 years ago). The stainless is Oneida "Community". They were gifts for our wedding 25 years ago.

We just purchased the napkins, placemats, chair pads and tablecloths (not used today)from Target. This lovely little table was given to us. It has 6 chairs and two huge leaves!

As you can see from the table, it needs a refinishing. And that is exactly why I was looking for a used table. I will be hauling it out to the garage for sanding and painting right after dinner! It will be a lovely shade of black when I'm done.

The waterglasses were a Christams gift from my mother a few years ago. I think she was wandering through TJ Maxx and thought of me.

The roses wouldn't stand still long enough for me to take their picture. That's why a little blurry. LOL The roses are from my frontyard where they seem to bloom from March 'til November.

The window valances are made from a tablecloth cut in half, sewn and tied with black satin ribbon.

The little hearts are from The Pampered Chef. They all received new black ribbons as well.

Thanks for joining me in an everyday dinner.

I like the black and white. It's always so clean and classy. I can't wait to see your table after you paint it. Be sure to share!
