We're having what the weatherman calls a
"mixed bag of weather".
Our no-winter-in-Oklahoma-this-year has continued
until this week and some
(mildly) cold air has moved in.
Supposedly, we are to get a taste of winter this weekend.
With that "mixed bag" of weather looming,
I decided to set the table accordingly.
I guess you could call it a
"mixed table" of elements.
I used a
wool tartan throw
as my base.
I am always a sucker for a good plaid.
I paired the throw/tablecloth
with a double set of napkins.
I used another plaid in similar colors and
topped it with crisp white linen napkins.
I love the contrast of the wool throw and the crisp linen.
I also used a big antique glass pitcher
filled with red tulips
to add to the "mixed bag" effect.
Then I put a bunch of blue and white
creamers and gravy boats
in a wooden box and
set it in the middle of the table.
Adding to that
"mixed bag" effect further
is the fact that I used
various blue and white tablewear.
I also used pieces of
Blue Willow that are over 100 years old
and pieces that are less than 10 years old.
It's a tablescape perfect for that
"Is it winter?"
Or "a very early spring?"
(both inside and outside!)
lead us in both directions!
of table elements
might be one of my favorite
ways to tablescape!
I made sure each place setting had
a goblet for sweet tea
and a mug for hot tea.
You just never know
I hope whatever you
are doing this weekend,
you are able to enjoy
a "mixed bag" of loveliness!
