What was I thinking when I bought 25 yards of burlap and 50 yards of ribbon?
Last week a small amount was used for overlapping table runners and to gussy up candle holders, but there’s lots more so I better get thinking.
With Thanksgiving just days away, there’re definite possibilities for the dining room table. I cut a length of burlap for the center of the table and tied it at intervals with the ribbon. So far so good.
Aren’t the colors in the so real looking flowers perfect? (These vases of artificial lovelies are one of my best ever purchases.) And who says napkin rings can’t serve a different purpose?
There’s still lots of burlap and ribbon left, so it’s up to the sewing room where I cut the burlap into placemat size and stitched the ribbon to the raw edges. This was a quick and easy project and will give a finished look to the table.
Now for the dishes. To allow the colors and textures to show through, I selected glass plates and added an accordion fold napkin and a sprig of fall leaves.
To finish the setting amber stems from Pier One and salad plates borrowed from another set of dishes are added.
Well, that came together pretty easy and gets me one step closer to being ready for Thanksgiving festivity.
Now I better start making a grocery list of ingredients for all our traditional favorites.
