I have a fun southwest style Longhorn and Lace Tablescape set up on the front porch farm table.
I am planning a simple salad supper.....everyone will bring their favorite summer salad......
I chose a lace tablecloth to set the placemats, plates, glasses, napkins, and cutlery on. The salads will be served buffet style on a nearby table.
In addition to the centerpiece on the table, I have a blingy boot floral design tied to each of the "head seats"
Since it is a salad supper, I thought a salad centerpiece would be cute. The base of my centerpiece is a black vintage iron scale. I filled the scale "tub" with faux veggies, roses, and lace.
Lots of guests wearing boots will be here tonight .....and they might need repairs ..... so I have some metal shoe lasts on hand just in case....lol!
I restyled the mantle to coordinate with the southwest tablescape theme.....
A olive bucket full of air ferns, pink boots.......
Sconces and roses make for a quick change mantle.
I wanted to show you how I would set the table if I were having a sit down dinner rather than a buffet.
I didn't want to cover my pretty place mats with a plate, napkins ...etc.....
(I purchased a pad of 50 Longhorn placemats on Amazon for about $34)
I didn't want to take time to set the entire table, but you get the idea.
I also brought down some of the decor on the fireplace to give the table a more formal look that I would want at a sit down dinner.
