There are so many places to get room design ideas these days. HGTV, Pinterest, Blogs, Houzz, etc. I enjoy seeing the designs of the professionals, but seeing the home interiors of other bloggers who aren't professionals really is inspiring. There are so many amazingly talented non professionals out there!
Has nothing to do with my Spring Table, just something that I'm reminded of every day while visiting all of you.
Now for the tablescape...
Hope you're not tired of seeing my Breakfast Room. I started keeping this table set while we had our house up for sale a few years ago. Mostly I keep the table set without dishes because everyone will sit at it more often, but I set it fully the week before Easter. Of course, no one sat at the table all set, which is why I don't keep it set with dishes.
Do you set your table with a tablecloth?
Linens and tablecloths really dress up and soften the table. A table with a tablecloth just looks more finished to me and helps preserve the finish of a wood table for the times when you do want to show it off.
A tablecloth doesn't have to be expensive. The topper on the table is a piece of fabric leftover from another project. A simple white tablecloth is very practical and can be bleached if it gets a stain on it.
The placemats are actually white napkins. My Breakfast table is small, so rectangular placemats will only fit turned vertically and there weren't any white placemats in my repertoire, so I improvised with some white napkins I already had.
The white napkin placemats have a pretty detail on one corner.
The green napkins are a new addition found at HomeGoods.
Green stemware would look great on this table to top off all this green. Definitely will put that on my list to look for at the Goodwill.
The spring green vase was also a recent HomeGoods find.
Thanks for stopping by!
