Summer Table

Happy Thursday everyone!
You know what that means...
it's time to share our tablescapes.
 
 
And I must admit,
sometimes they are just for fun.
 
 
Sometimes it takes just one thing to spark an idea...
 
 
and before you know it,
 
 
a tablescape is forming in your head!
 
 
 Welcome to my table...
it's set for two.
Enjoy!
 







 
Looking forward to seeing more tables over at
Drop by for loads of inspiration!
 
Thanks for dropping by...

  1. Sharlotte, I totally understand the "little thing" that sometimes sparks the creativity! I said the same thing in my post today. LOL Your table for two is perfect for a relaxing Summer sit-down.

  2. I love this table! Wherever did you find your flower dish at the top of your dish stack? Your centerpiece made me smile; in fact, your whole table is fun and welcoming! Happy Summer!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

    1. Hi Rosie! I actually found those top flower dishes from "My Tableware.com" It's a great place to find dishes, plus a few extra things too. These little ones are Spode and so versatile. Thanks for asking and for dropping by!

  3. I love this table, Sharlotte! I love the variety of plates you used! The colors are so pretty. What's the story on the plates on top? Love the shape. Also the use of denim pockets keeps the tablescape not too formal. You are so good at creating the prettiest tables!

    1. Hi Susie! Those little flowered plates are from an order several years ago. I was looking for white dishes and these popped up for a great price. Try looking at MyTableware.com ~ it's a great site. As for the denim pockets...they are a fun way to add a little something, don't you think? They'd be super cute with red or white...or really any color ~ they are so versatile too! Thanks for kind comments and for dropping by!

    1. Hello my Texas friend!! Do you find things that make you think of a table, too? It's fun, isn't it to use things in a different way?! Thanks for dropping by, have a great week!

  5. I really love your combination and agree about the inspiration. I love your variations in the stacked plates. The shapes and color and pattern mix nicely and add much interest. I've also only recently (actually so far only once) starting doing settings "just for fun". Everything prior was an actual setting for an actual event. But every since I started blogging just a few weeks ago, I'm becoming familiar with the idea of doing a setting just for fun. I still have a backlog of things to post since I'm still new, but eventually I will eb delighted to do a new weekly setting just for fun... :-) (Btw, love your font choice and your header, as well!!)

    1. Hi Lory! Welcome to Blogland!
      Thank you so much for the sweet comments. I must admit, I tend to make my tables for fun because they are just that ~ fun! However, they do give me a lot of ideas for "real" tables too. Many bloggers actually have parties or events and post their tables so just post what you already have! I'm sure they are fabulous!! Thanks again for dropping by!

  6. Wow, I think this is just lovely and I'm sure glad something sparked this tablescape! Love your centerpiece, the grapevine duck and bow. The place setting is gorgeous with shapes and colors and a fabulous burlap runner.
    Happy summer..........hugs.

    1. I really like using as many textures as possible and those jean pockets were simple to make and use as well. They seem to be so versatile...I think they'd work with just about any color, don't you think? I'll have to experiment ~ you might see them again!! Thanks again for visiting!

    I will begin to tablescape again.
    I will begin to tablescape again....

    I'm going to write that 1000 times so that I will actually tablescape again. I MISS it. I agree with you so much that it's just the little thing that usually sparks the creativity. So often with us, it was my mom who would have the little inspiration. Maybe with the return of good health for her, she will have some inspiration.

    I really loved this table. I loved the way you did the napkin, and I'm crazy about the way the flower plate bursts on the green one.
