A loose straw table runner on the front porch????? Is she crazy?????
Well, I might be just a little crazy, but I do have fun being that way....lol!
I have created so many tablescapes over the years using a cloth table runner or a long garland of greenery and flowers that I just wanted something different for this tablescape.
I will admit that a straw tablerunner would work better in the house where there's no breeze, but I checked the weather forecast for today and I think I'll be ok to use it for a little get together I'm having later this evening.
The table has to be cleared after the party anyway and it won't take but a little extra time to hand sweep the straw into a bag and save it to use another time.
To make my table runner I bought a bale of straw at Hobby Lobby, took it apart, and scattered the straw down the center of my farm table
Could it get any easier ?
I wanted to keep the decorations on my table runner simple to keep it the center of attention......
Crystal scales.....boo pumpkins......and a few roosters and hens is all I needed to add to the straw runner for a simple look.
I will serve dinner buffet style on the island in the kitchen. Everyone can fill their plates in the kitchen and come out to the porch to eat.
I always enjoy your visits so much, please come back again soon!
