Our favorite bachelor, who lives next door, is coming for dinner tonight. I planned to eat outside with this table design, but it is a rainy, gloomy day, so we'll be in the breakfast room. He's not one to appreciate anything fussy, but I did use these dishes that have been languishing in the cupboard for a while.
This sunflower tablecloth is often in use. I bought it at Homegoods several months ago. I love the top of it, but the manufacturers cut corners on the border. Instead of printing it on the bottom of the round, they cut border fabric and sewed it on as straight edges. I don't love that. The napkins are from Target, and the flatware is still available at World Market.
A rattan charger was a good choice with this print, and the plate is "The Circle of Kindness" from Pfaltzgraff. I recently found this pretty salad plate at Homegoods that worked great with it. It is from Oneida.
These tortoiseshell glasses are old, old, old. Well, not old enough to be vintage, but I've had them a long time.
I was going to go to the floral wholesaler for sunflowers, but on my way, I stopped at Kroger and found these mums. They reflected the flowers on the salad plate well enough, don't you think?
These are Imperial glass and we got them for a wedding gift a million years ago.
Here's the way it stacked up.
You can see the rain on the deck and it lasted ALL DAY.
It turned out to be a cheery table.
Did I tell you it was a gloomy day? Sheesh!
