Burlap, White and Crystal

I love beautiful table scapes and so admire those that can put them together!  I don't seem to have a natural ability to do that and I'm trying to learn.

I've always read that you should 'shop your house' and you would certainly think I have enough 'stuff.'  But I'm going to start with something simple.

I LOVE the look of rustic and bling so with that in mind I mixed burlap place mats, purchased at HomeGoods, with French Country white dishes and crystal.

My husband made the barn wood 'trough' that sits in the center of our table and I filled it with white hydrangeas, gardenias and roses.  They are silk except for the burlap hydrangeas that I got at Hobby Lobby. White flowers are also another favorite of mine.

I've also added Mercury Glass candle holders that are from Ballard.

I bought the dishes through Joss and Main, another favorite of mine.

As an added bonus, my husband made this table!

Our whole family just loves it and loves him for making it!  It is now an official family heirloom.  Click here to see some other beautiful tables he has made.  Entry TableMaking the Entry TableMaking a Sofa Table.

I love the fresh simplicity of this table setting and will probably repeat it for several family dinners.  And I'll start shopping my house to add some variety and interest.

Have a wonderful day!

Love and blessings!

  2. Beautiful! I was going to ask you what you had in you "table troth" these days. Now I know!

    1. Thank you, Betsy! At least it's Spring INSIDE! Right?
      love you guys!

  3. I think you are wrong! You DO have a natural ability to put together a GORGEOUS tablescape! This is wonderful - love the mix of rustic elegance! How handy your hubby is, making not only the fabulous trough but also the fantastic table - so special! The white dishes with the interesting detail on them are the icing on the cake on this table! So glad I stopped by from Between Naps on the Porch.


    1. Thank you, DD! I've never enjoyed being told 'I was wrong' so much!

  4. Lynda, I think you should receive an A+ for this table and I agree you do have the natural ability! Looking forward to what you have for us in the future.
