Welcome to the 97th Tablescape Thursday!
Hope you aren’t tired of dining out on the porch. When winter gets here, they’ll be plenty of time for staying inside by the fire. For now, lets play outside…as long as we can.
I didn’t wait for darkness to light the candles…though, I know I really should. Let’s just pretend it’s getting dark.
While we’re pretending, let’s, also pretend I grew this corn and harvested it today just for our meal. We’ll have a mystery guest join us. He’s hiding behind the flowers at present.
Here’s your place right here…
Golden bamboo flatware just seemed to work with this corny tablescape…
Found these large corn platters at Old Time Pottery recently and thought they would make a great summer setting, especially for a cookout with grilled corn.
When you’re shopping for chargers, look for items to use that aren’t chargers.
These large corn platters were onsale for 50% off, which made them only $5 each. Sometimes using a platter or something unexpected as as a charger can make for a fun a table setting.
The platters came with silky green bows tied onto the handles. If they eventually get soiled or dirty, it will be easy to replace them with fresh ribbons. I could even see some fun gingham ribbons tied on the handles. Or, maybe raffia…to go with the corn theme.
Colonial Candle sent a pretty globe candle holder my way a while back.
It’s the only candle holder I’ve ever seen that will convert to hold either a pillar or a taper candle. Love that! I’m not sure if these are still available online now or not.
This tablescape called for a simple centerpiece. I used my favorite little pitcher of daisies for a centerpiece with a bit of a country feel. Uh, what’s that? You say, you see someone?
Now how do you think I grew all this corn? (wink) I had some help, you know. He’s our special guest today.
No crows on this porch!
