I love to play with color when the weather warms up. One afternoon found me searching through all of the colorful fabric that I’d bought, with good intentions, over the years when I stumbled upon this one. This particular fabric gave me a smile as bold as the pattern, so I thought that today I’d get in touch with my inner cowgirl. I’m not sure that all of the colors work here as well as I’d hoped they would. The vases, I think, have to go, but setting tables is about both joy and experimentation. I had a good time with this one.
Fabric is a great way to cover a table with something BOLD. If you like fabric as much as I do – a real puzzle, I suppose, since I don‘t sew – you might consider going through your stash to see what you can come up with; consider layering or cross-crossing narrower pieces. Go crazy! You’re the boss.
Since summer is casual, I thought it would be fun to put the napkins and flatware in the coffee mugs.
Some patterns, such as this one, run just one way. When used on a table, the people sitting along the side will be looking at the women sideways, but then, come to think of it, don’t most men look at us women sideways?!
