These are the elements I combined:
A somewhat faded or shabby chic blue and white vintage tablecloth
I had starched the heck out of as I tend to find that starch will always disguise a multitude of sins!
Square white plastic plates from a party supply store
that were designed to be DISCARDED during clean up! Yay!
Blue linen napkins
Please notice that the blues don't quite match the tablecloth, and I prefer it this way!
Stainless steel silverware right out of the kitchen drawer
Sterling silver goblets
Yep, you read that right!
My rationale: who doesn't love the coldest water imaginable on a hot summer day?
And the best way to get that is to drink it out of a silver goblet!
Besides, silver goblets also add that timeless touch to any table.
Wooden flower holders from Urban Outfitters
Short candlestick votives: Two dollars apiece from Harpeth Antique Mall
See for yourself that it all worked together!
But next to the girls themselves, the best part of the gathering was the delicious food. Here is a glimpse of some of our culinary delights!
|Caprese salad with red Beefsteak and golden Roma tomatoes|
|That ole Southern standby: deviled eggs|
|Bread? You always have to have bread!|
Hence the homemade pizza!
|Here's my plate before I took the first bite!|
Now, isn't that gorgeous!
Hope you are enjoying these last few weeks of summer!
