Tablescape Tuesday: Come As You Are

“Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised!”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭113:2-3‬ ‭ 

This past weekend was a really busy, yet enjoyable one spent with our friends and family.  Apparently I was so busy, I nearly forgot about my tablescape that I post every Tuesday until yesterday morning!  But sometimes, it’s just good to relax and let things be low-key…wouldn’t you agree?  After all, relationships are what bring us around the table in the first place!

Since I didn’t have any anything in mind for a tablescape…no fresh flowers, and no fruit for the centerpiece, I kept calm and shopped my house!  Most of us have plenty of stuff without spending a dime to make a pretty table setting.  We just have to think outside the box and get started!  For this table, I pulled out the beautiful blue/gray scarf for the table runner and the rest just fell into place…and I love it!

In the same way that Christ has invited us to his wedding feast, I hope this table will invite you to pull up a seat and come as you are!

 I set the dining room table for four!

 The scarf provided the color and I like the pop of blue with all the creamy whites!

The rustic wood bark napkin rings give texture, which I am a fan!

The soup tureen matches the plates and chargers and I often use it as a centerpiece!

A pair of turned upside down sundae glasses hold pillar candles! 

I always enjoy using the birch bark containers and filling them with random cuttings from our yard!  Easy to do!

“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold
in a setting of silver”
Proverbs‬ ‭25‬:‭11‬

I love setting the table for family, friends, and you, our special followers

      Debbie, thanks so much for your very encouraging words! If I have already commented, I apologize, it seems that I have lost some of my comments! Wishing you a week full of joy!

  2. Kim says:

    It’s so pretty! I love the texture of the birch bark with the elegance of the crystal and china. Your blue scarf is the perfect cloth! Happy Tuesday! 🙂

  3. I think the tables where we have to stretch, think and get creative with what we have are the most fun! This turned out perfect for a winter table Pam, love the scarf paired with the bark containers and the pretty white pieces~

      Shirley, thank you so much! Love using what I have! Shirley, I apologize if I have already commented, I lost some of my replies!

    I absolutely love the plates and the linens. And I like how you draped the cloth in the center. I might have to try that.

    I am trying to decrease what I have in our house so I am constantly shopping my house rather than going out to buy things. Except for fresh flowers and even then, I try to buy small plants that can later be added to the garden.

    Thanks for Sharing Your Cup!

    Textile freak that I am, I’m crazy for the scarf used as part of your centerpiece. Shopping your house would yield all kinds of wonderful things from what I’ve seen so far.

We love your comments!
