My favorite place to serve meals to the family is at the farmhouse table on the front porch..... and I couldn't wait to use my new place mats in a tablescape for a family dinner.
I found my new place mats at Walmart for $2 .... they are reversible and can be cleaned with a damp cloth since they are vinyl, love that! Here is side 1.....
and here is side 2.
For an easy clean up after dinner, I am using paper plates.
For side 1 of the place mats, I used pink and white polka dot plates.....chevon and floral salad plates ......and plastic aqua handled silverware
For side two place mats, I used aqua ball jar plates with plastic pink handled silverware. For the family members that don't like salad ....this is where you can sit...lol!
I have extra silverware in a chicken wire caddy.
I have 5 mason jars filled with small rose bouquets on a tablerunner for a simple centerpiece..
I covered the fireplace mantel with a quilted lap throw that has the same colors that I used in my tablescape.
A basket of flowers.....two bird houses.....a couple of birds and two sprays of flowers complete my fireplace mantel
Now, I can just relax until time for dinner!
