Tablescapes, French Country Summer Table

I was over at DD’s the other day, my darling daughter was married 2 years ago and has such lovely things to play with~

I used a place mat to line the tray which I found by the fireplace in DD’s living room

Added some lanterns and a bowl of decorative balls perched on a cake plate

    Such fun it is to play with someone else’s things! I see that your daughter has taste quite similar to my daughter. The French country style seems to be very popular among their generation.

  2. What a dreamy table…I wan to say it’s gorgeous (because it is) but the words that come to mind are; creamy and sweet…just plain dreamy.

    What fun to get to play with your daughter’s dishes too! I often do just that when I visit someone who I think would understand. Ha! Her dishes are lovely, but that table is what really calls out to me. I’d love to have a long French farm table because they remind me of the wonderful meals we’ve had while vacationing in Provence. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Fun to play with your daughter’s new dishes. Wouldn’t it be nice to start over with all new dishes too? I remember my mother feeling the same way. I love her patterns. The tablescape looks lovely.

  11. I love the idea of playing with some else dishes! It gives you a whole new outlook. Not to mention that I don’t have a lot of dishes to mix & match! Your table is so pretty! I love the placemats & green dishes. I have been looking(not too hard), for that color. Your lucky to have your daughter living close to you,. Mine lives in Schenectady, NY and I ‘m in IL. Enjoy setting tables together!
