Welcome to the 218th Tablescape Thursday!
Recently, I was chatting via email with Dawnette. She was telling me how she was inspired to participate in a competition for “the best dressed table” at her county fair this year. Does the county fair do that in your town, too?
Dawnette said, “The two table themes to chose from were Victorian for 2, which was the formal table and an Engagement Party for 4. I decided to go with the engagement party table. I decided to go with a western themed table and it turned out that the fair theme was “Best in the West”.
Love the sunflower and cattail centerpiece! Let’s take a closer look.
Beautiful color scheme with aqua blues, russet oranges and warm brown.
Dawnette chose a western themed table runner, perfect for this setting.
A boot is the “vase” for the beautiful floral centerpiece…so clever! Love the leather “branded” candle holders.
The menu is displayed inside a ”saddle” frame. I absolutely love a themed table! They are always my fave because they are so much fun to put together and dinner guests always love them!
The little sign on the table say, “If a man has enough horse-sense to treat his wife like a thoroughbred, she’ll never grow into an old nag.” Good advice for the newly engaged groom.
Of course, we need wine for the occasion, displayed in a wine caddy perfect for this themed table setting.
This was Dawnette’s very first time participating in this event and guess how she did!
You got it! 1st Place! Congrats Dawnette for taking 1st Place! Whoo, Hoo! Envision me tossing my cowboy hat high in the air! Wish I had a cowboy hat to toss.
Have you ever entered a table into an event at your county or state fair?
Looking forward to all the beautiful tablescapes for this Tablescape Thursday!
