Welcome to the 8th Tablescape Tuesday!
The following tablescape is one I posted on Rate My Space many months back. I didn’t want to use a typical floral centerpiece, so I scouted around the house for something I already had that might work well with a red and white tablescape.
The centerpiece is a bunny that was hand-made close to 20 years ago by a very sweet lady in Hilton Head, S.C. She crocheted her “hat” and made/sewed all her clothing. She even used tea to stain her clothing to give her a vintage look. I’ve placed her in a red and cream, toile fabric-covered hat box.
Tablecloth is a style referred to as an Army Navy Tablecloth. There are various stories on how this style tablecloth got it’s name…apparently servicemen bought these tablecloths while overseas and sent them back to their wives here in the states. The tablecloths are designed with alternating panels of lace and fabric.
This week’s tablescape book is Entertaining with Southern Style by Karen M. Carroll. I really like this book…it’s from the Editors of Southern Accents Magazine. You can still find it on Amazon at a very reasonable price.
Thanks for stopping by! Please take time to visit the blogs below for some of the most beautiful tables you’ll ever set eyes on!
