...what do you do?
I hesitate to share this with you, especially since grand and glorious tablescapes abound within blogland, but I decided to anyway. Last evening they were here. My mother, sisters and sister-in-laws, my daughter, and their daughters. A few were unable to attend, but the ones that could, came.
Thanks to Walmart for the white paperplates, white and green paper napkins, plastic cups, and the faux real looking flowers that Better Homes and Gardens now has at Walmart. I am certainly not promoting Walmart, but they did make my job feasible.
I took the flowers and made a simple, very simple bouquet using floral foam. Don't you think the flowers look real? I used a few extra flowers to tie around the napkins with thin green and pink polka dot ribbon.
I laid one green napkin on the white tablecover to add more color to the white tablecloth and white paper plates. To extend my table, I added another old table. Even though they weren't the same height, it worked.
My Mother's contribution was fresh tomatoes from the farm up the road. They were a hit and disappeared quickly. Ripe, red tomatoes add a special touch to every dinner.
