“The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.”
The best laid plans are subject to change. I am sure we are all too familiar with things changing at the drop of a hat and having to just roll with it. I had been planning all week for dinner on the patio…the tablescape was planned out in my mind and I had even purchased flowers for the centerpiece! About the time I was heading out the door to get started, much needed rain started falling, for which I am grateful. So, I had to “back up and punt” (you football fans will understand that lingo)! And voila! A completely different tablescape! Although it was hard to photograph because of the gloomy day, it all still came together rather nicely, as most back-up plans do! I was able to use the flowers I had purchased and I will put the planned tablescape away for a not-so-rainy day!
Last October when Butch and I had a little get-away to Highlands, NC, I found these vintage placemats at an antique shop and I had yet to use them. The “back up and punt” plan seemed to be a good call!
The matching napkins were included in the set of 24 pieces for 24 dollars! Yes, 12 placemats and 12 napkins for a dollar each! I quickly pressed the napkins and found this iridescent ribbon in my stash of stuff to add some glam!
