I have an affinity to all things black and white, and for some time, I've been wanting to do a B&W themed tablescape, but wasn't sure about the accent color or any details.
The other day, my wonderful husband brought home some sunflowers for me and I thought they'd look nice in this black and white vase... and then, Voila! My tablescape bloomed in my head.
I was as happy as a pig in mud when I found the black and white damask salad plates at Marshall's...$2.99 ea.
I already had the tablescarf, stole it from one of my B&W bedrooms.
Tablecloth and napkins where "nabbed" on a Goodwill Hunting expedition. $3.60.
I decided to fold each person's napkin differently... what the heck!
The black octagonal soup bowls where also a GW find for .50 ea.
Now, if only I had just as much FUN cleaning and cooking , as I do tablescaping, I would have invited some friends over for dinner! :o)
Nice thing about blogging is that when I'm ready to hostess a dinner party, I can just look at this post and it'll be a no brainer!
To see food that I would serve with this tablescape, go to , When Life Gives You Lemons....Eat Them!
Please enjoy more creative tablescapes over at Between Naps on the Porch!
