Ruffled Seat Covers

I've had plans to put new seat covers on the dining room chairs for several months and finally set aside the time to do it this morning.  

I should have taken the time to do a before photo of the fabric,  but I was almost thru with the covers before it crossed my mind.  

You can see in the photo on the left that the covers were a dark  stripped material.    We bought this DP dining table and 6 chairs about 20 years ago and I recovered the chair seats at that time so it was about time for new covers!

 I asked H to take out one of the leaves to make the table seat 4-6 instead of  6-8 .....and we rotated the table a little to give the room a new look.

I covered the seats with a ruffled fabric that I bought a HL.

The newly covered chair seats looked so pretty,    I decided to serve dinner tonight in the formal dining room.

I set the table with Desert Rose dishes,  pink Fostoria thumb print glasses.....

White chargers and dinner plates,   Desert Rose salad plates......

Assorted Desert Rose glasses.....

Heart table runner and hat napkins.....

Lily has on a vintage pink hat  that is similar to one of the hats on the napkins.....

Hershel looks very distinguished in his top hat..... 

They are dressed for dinner!

I have a dessert bar set up on the buffet......

Pie candles.....

Cakes.....

Nothing too fattening on this dessert bar....well,  maybe the wine.....

All I have left to do is get dinner on the table.....see you soon!
