When Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen posted a gorgeous all-white tablescape recently, she asked if we were interested in repeating last summer's Let There Be White party. I commented that since I am All About Color, I didn't think I'd be able to pull together an all-white table, but that I'd love to see others' efforts. Kathleen wrote back, encouraging me to give it a try, so I did. I looked around my house and through cupboards and closets for anything white and found more things than I'd expected. I was surprised that I was able to set the table without going shopping for anything! Here's the view from the entryway.
Here's a closer look at the table. Through the caneback chair you may spot Tiger snoozing in the late afternoon sun.
I'm using a bridge cloth that my grandmother made and edged with her tatting, with napkins to match. The tall candleholders are from a fun shop in Salado, Texas, just down the road. Some of you have seen the preserved boxwood topiaries in an earlier tablescape.
After I had taken most of the photos, I spotted these white bird candles on my baker's rack and decided to add them to the centerpiece.
A different angle...
Here's a closer look at one of the bird candles.
Here's a placesetting. We've had the covered ramekins for years -- bought them originally to use for French onion soup. The silver is Lunt Belvedere.
And here's a closer look at the tatting that edges the cloth and napkins. Grandma taught me to knit and sew, but I never learned to tat!
I like this photo with late afternoon shadows.
