Flowers and Checks….

Here is a fun table setting for two that I quickly put together for a friend who stopped by for an impromptu lunch:

I used paper flowered placemats…. favorite checked enamel dishes and depression stemware...

…a vase of wildflowers…
(they look real, but I confess they are artificial!)

…I slid the table out of the corner of the room and there was just enough room for the two of us...

A quick lunch of salad and breads and a glass of wine, by the window, on a warm sunny day, with a girlfriend - life is good!

  1. Love your checks - they look terrific. Sounds like you and your friend had a great lunch. Thanks for sharing and have a grand week.

  2. It's easy to have an impromptu lunch with your Mackezie-Child's pieces!

  3. Looks like we need to have a little tea party with the checks and flowers. So darling. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. You set a beautiful table!


  5. You already know I love this! If I find a small-ish round table I may ship it to you to paint!!!! Too adorable, and would love to mimic this whole table. Vicki in Louisville KY

  6. Oh my goodness- I love this! What a sweet and charming table! Love the dishes of course and the pretty stemware.
    You painted that table??? Gees!!
    I know MacKenzie Childs tables are so cool but they come with a hot price tag!! I can't imagine painting this- such patience and talent!!

    1. Liz, no, I didn't paint this table, it is a M-C table….I wish I could find some table bases that resemble this shape, so I could paint some!!

  7. Patti, boy would I love to stop in for lunch at your place! Your CC table is fabulous and perfectly set with garden delights. The big sale is quickly approaching. Have a wonderful time. Can't wait to see what you bring home!

  8. Wow, I love your tablescape! Your MacKenzie Childs' pieces are fabulous and one of my favorites! What a delightful lunch in such a cheerful setting! Have a wonderful weekend!
