Cuisine Kathleen does like to challenge her blog friends from time to time to get their creative juices flowing. This time she wanted us to create a table inspired by one we had seen in a magazine, on Pinterest, another blog or wherever.
This table is one I had pinned from Sweet Something Designs and it made me think of my now Farm Girl daughter in that it’s somewhat country and somewhat French. It is simple, a table for a family to comfortably gather round for the evening meal.
Since I don’t have the daughter’s farm table, I improvised, covering a table with a quilt and adding a piece of burlap for a backdrop to the centerpiece. Believe it or not, the hardest part about making the arrangement was getting the darned candy canes to stay in place. Maybe a little glue would have helped!
Completing the setting is a plaid, ever so popular this season, napkin tucked into a Santa napkin holder and candy striped flatware which I found at Ross. I was so excited to make this my one holiday purchase at a price of $12.99 for four place settings.
All finished, the table is my interpretation of the one that caught my eye for its artful simplicity suitable for any meal. In addition to it making me think of Farm Girl, I know my grandmother would be shaking her head at one of her quilts being on a table. That probably didn’t happen at her house!
I’m betting this eggnog latte will perk him right up! Hey, I’ll make one for you, too.
