You have reached the guests tablescape page.
It is my pleasure to introduce you to Gail and Cookie, two Katherines Corner readers with lovely tablescapes to share in the tablescape summer blog tour.
I am Gail,
I live in the small town of Vian Oklahoma. I’m about 5 miles from beautiful Lake Tenkiller .
I married my childhood sweetheart when I was 15 and he was 18. We have been married 31 years, had four sons and now have four grand babies. I love to decorate my home, wedding and parties of any kind. Creating new ideas with vintage pieces or accenting with the lovely Antiques brings me such enjoyment. Arranging fresh flowers is another passion of mine, they can transform the simplest decor into a charming display.
This is my first time participating in a blogging event like, Katherines Corner summer tablescape challenge . I love to decorate, but writing about it is the challenge to me!
My husband and I both come from large families he had seven siblings, I have five. I still enjoy using China and Glassware with them all.
When we have a family dinner it is rather a large affair! Instead of doing the formal seating, I create a buffet around my kitchen island. I then have room to decorate with candles and fresh flowers in the middle of my tables.It looks very elegant when everyone is seated.
My breakfast nook table is an early American Oak antique. I found it several years ago in the tiny town of Charleston, Arkansas.
It did not have the original leaf with it but my husband made one. I add it when we are having guests!
I always use a tablecloth, even with just me and my husband. It adds warmth and charm instantly to my room.
Setting my table with my Vintage Federal Syracuse China, Vintage Anchor Hocking Glassware makes a beautiful tablescape.
Arranging them with a lace table cloth, vintage napkins, and Antique silverware, just makes it perfectly elegant! The finishing touch is a single candle, and I have the romantic ambiance I have hoped to create!
Thanks for including me in the blog tablescape tour.
Included in my scape are of course, Longaberger dishes, antique wine goblets from my husband’s aunt, greenery centerpiece in a WI tray, and birds and feathers, which are everywhere in my home. I always include a found feather in all of my vignettes and arrangements, my signature. Also, the silverware holders are a new Longaberger item to be sold starting next month. I included my hand painted zinnias at every place setting along with a painted rock the guests are to take and hide. This hiding of a rock is an “Ohio thing.”
I’m sorry I don’t know why comments isn’t showing. please leave comments for gail and cookie on my tour post and I’ll try and figure out what is wrong. Hugs!
