We had a busy weekend, so I hadn't found time to plan a table for this week's Tablescape Thursday at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch. I had decided I'd just have to skip playing this week. BUT! Monday afternoon when I got in from work, I found a package on the front porch! The Tablescape Fairy -- AKA my sweet baby sister in Nashville -- had sent me some inspiration! She included four brown woven raffia placemats and four red napkins, as well as four darling felt bird napkin rings -- all from a wonderful store in Nashville called Color. If you're ever in Nashville, you must visit -- they serve mimosas and hot tea to shoppers -- and the merchandise is glorious. You can also get on their email list! (Edited to say my sister wrote to say the birds are from World Market!)
Here's a closeup of one of the sweet little birds. He'll be perfect for Christmas, too!
table two weeks ago. The brown from the coffee beans added more brown and more texture to the table, and they still smell wonderful!
