It's Tablescape Thursday and we want to thank Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for hosting. It's always fun to see everyone's tables. Each is so unique and different and I love to see everyone's dishes.
It was a luncheon for 12. Too cold and too rainy to go out in the garden -- but one can bring the garden inside. So with a green tablecloth and green napkins as a basis, I brought in garden elements.
The centerpiece instead of flowers is my foix bois planter filled with ferns and other greenery.
At one end, a large mossy covered bird that spent the winter in the breakfast room. But he was gay and gardeny and perfect at one end of the planter.
At the other end of the planter, a cloche which covered a paper mache robin with a basket in his beak. A long ago find at Nell Hill's and a favorite of all that I have bought there.
With the centerpiece in place, glasses at each place and the menu between the cutlery, we're ready for company. The breakfast room chairs supplement the dining room ones so that we can seat 12.
