Farmhouse Tablescape


With all of the harvesting of vegetables in my container garden that I have been doing of late, I have felt like nothing less than a small-scale farmer, so I figured that a farmhouse table was in order. Here is the result.
I always have fresh flowers in the house, alstroemerias being one of my favorites. This lovely bouquet of white flowers in its brown vase is the perfect centerpiece. Next year, I’ve told myself, I’m going to grow these out on the deck. I had some amazing luck with flowers on the deck this year, so my plan next year is to grow an equal amount of vegetables, herbs, and flowers.
The placemats you have seen before, these were purchased at a local shop called Three French Hens. I use these constantly, as you may have noticed, and don’t look too closely, or you will notice that they are beginning to show some wear.
Another local find, from The White Rabbit, are these wonderful galvanized chargers. They are perfect for a rustic farmhouse look.

The plaid dinner plates, and farm appetizer plates are from Pier 1. The plaid plates I can recommend highly, the appetizer plates not so much. Mine arrived chipped, crazed, and with a dollop of white touch-up paint on them. Fortunately, I got a full refund, but these are used solely for decoration.
Beneath the appetizer plates are wonderful chicken luncheon plates that you will see more of next week.

The plaid napkins are from Pier 1 as well, and have been used more than any other set of napkins that I have. Black and white check goes with pretty much any color you can imagine.
The flatware, antique replicas, is from Pottery Barn. I keep them on the sideboard in these jars, and thought, why not just put them on the table that way, so people can take what they need. I like the farmhouse look.
I consider this table to be the quiet before the storm. By storm I mean the burst of color that comes with fall. Stay tuned for a gradual transition from neutrals into the fires of autumn.

Another cool summer look is this Green & White Summer Tablescape.

Your table is gorgeous! I love those particular colors. I think my favorite thing on the table might be that brown vase - is it opaque? I picture your garden taking over your deck by next year!

This table is gorgeous. I love the way you've taken a simple black and white color scheme and added complexity with pattern and texture. Those galvanized chargers are great - I wish I could find them here. And I hope we get more information about those chicken luncheon plates, because they are just beautiful!

I love this table, Pattie! I bought those same Pier 1 plaid plates, but in the salad plate size. I fell in love with them when I saw them. Black and white makes for such a pretty tablescape and so nice for any time.
