Here are some camping tablescapes.
Since camping is on my mind I thought I would revisit a few of my past campground tablescapes.
If I thought I got odd looks from my neighbors when I haul out all my tablescaping trinkets to do a table outside on the patio, I discovered I get even stranger looks from fellow campers!
After they get over the “What on earth is she doing?” question, the next question is “She stores all that stuff in her trailer?”
First off, people actually have approached me at our trailer and asked me what I am doing. I would tell them that I am a blogger and I write about ways to save money yet still be able to have pretty things….blah…blah..blah. Well, what I have learned is that the bulk of the world still doesn’t understand blogging. I get this glazed over look from these good folks. I totally forget that not everyone blogs! LOL But then, their confusion gets kicked up a notch because even less people have a clue what “tablescaping” is! And if they understand the whole tablescaping thing, they definitely do not understand why someone would do it at a campground!
I have found it is just easier to say that I photograph dishes to be used on the internet. They don’t know why I would do that but, it makes it easier for them to understand.
And then the next question, “She stores all the stuff in her trailer?” is a big “NO”. Generally the tablescapes I did from the campground were put together after a day of garage sales, flea markets or thrift stores. They get boxed up and taken home with me when we leave the campground.
I just have too much fun seeing if I can pull all the things I just found together and create something pretty with them. It is a major challenge to do this since I don’t have any other accouterments with me.
So, here are a few past campground tablescapes!
The above tablescape was made by using all the things that were kept in the trailer.
Fun acrylic dishes are great for camping (in a trailer) because they are so light and they are easy to store.
There was a fun flea market open every weekend near the campground we used to camp at. I loved heading to it first thing Saturday morning and do some “Dish Hunting”!
There were also wonderful antique stores in a nearby town that always had such pretty things. I love old restaurantware and vintage Syracuse China is a favorite of mine.
This was a simple 4th of July picnic using things I had plus paper and plastic items. Just fun and cheerful!
So, that was a few of my past camping tablescapes. I hope you enjoyed them and have a wonderful day!
