Lunch in the Living Room


Hi everyone!

The other day it was raining off and on all day. Troy was out doing some errands and so, the princess and I were home. I asked her if she would like to have  lunch in the living room and we would do a pretty tablescape just for us. She immediately said yes and so we headed upstairs to pick out our linens to start the table decorating.

We started out with an off white lace tablecloth and then used olive green napkins as our placemats.

  7. What a lovely table, Diann! It's nice to treat ourselves good every once in awhile! That bread looks delicious. I love your tureen with the plant in it. I had found two tureens at a thrift store - one about the size of yours and a smaller one and was thinking of using them for plants. Yours looks so good in it.

    Ahhh...I think that having your little one help you with making a "pretty" table is just precious! Hehe...start them out young! Right? Well dear friend, I just love your choices for this beautiful luncheon in the living room! The china is soooo pretty and I love how your napkin rings with the colorful glass mirrors all the same sweet colors in your china! I bet you and Princess had a wonderful lunch and I also bet that some really special memories were made! Thanks for sharing your beautiful table with us today, sweet friend!

  25. This is such a lovely tabalescape and a great way for you to spend time with the Princess. Your vintage plates with the glass and the hankies pulled everything together and looks so lovely. Your shamrock still looks great, mine has been put outside.
