I have the family room dining table set for a small dinner party. I used lots of blue and white to create my tablescape.....and a few touches of pink...lol!
I sometimes shop the house and gather pieces to use in my tablescapes.......
The centerpiece I used in my tablescape was "borrowed" from the coffee table in the family room. If you look close, you can see that the centerpiece is constructed in a vintage metal milk jug holder.
My appetizer for dinner is a shrimp salad, so I have some bowls in my centerpiece to serve it in.
At each place setting, I have blue stemware for water and pink for wine.
The place settings are all the same.
The dinner plates are on a white enamel charger.................
Here's the marking on the back of the dinner plates.
I found the place mats at Hobby Lobby in the 75% of isle and the napkin rings are a recent yard sale purchase......6 for $1.50.
I hung a blue Fair ribbon on the existing pom pom wreath...........
I bought a sack of fair ribbons at the Milk House Market barn sale a couple of weeks ago. The sack had lots of pretty colored ribbons and was $4 for all of them. I think I may make a wreath using them......the County Fair is just around the corner.
I also borrowed another arrangement from the family room.......it's the blue enamel roasting pan under the window.
It's filled with velvet mushrooms, moss, and greenery.
What am I serving as the entree for dinner? Chicken Fried Rice!
I like to have everything precooked so all I have to do is assemble it right before we sit down to eat. I usually have more chicken in my fried rice, but we are having shrimp salad and also crab rangoon.
My secrets to really good fried rice are...... plenty of butter...... toasted sesame oil......and using cold day old rice.
