Who says a meal outdoors has to mean paper plates and plastic utensils?
Why not use that sweet little cross stitched table cloth that Mama made all those years ago?
Shouldn't it be seen and enjoyed instead of tucked away for safe keeping?
Queen Anne's lace gathered by the road side and placed into a vintage, aqua blue canning jar makes a fitting centerpiece for an outdoor table setting.
Queen Anne's lace always reminds me of the scene in the Anne of Green Gables movies where Anne is gathering the last of summer's Queen Anne's lace on a bluff overlooking the sea.
In the movie, you can see she's a bit melancholy about summer's end.
I feel that way, too.
These Meakin English Ironstone dishes were found while out thrifting last year.
I paid something like 3 or 4 dollars for the whole bunch.
The goblets are from the Dollar Tree!
The silver is a thrifted mix and match for around 25-50 cents apiece.
More photos of our table for two...
Well, it's almost Friday friends!
HAPPY, HAPPY FRIDAY
