I set the dining room table, using a mix of white and creamy white dishes and accessories, from my “tiny” collection of dishes. I decided to leave the table uncovered. I like how the white dishes look against the dark finish.

The center vignette is tall and a tad large. A little bit over the top, especially when considering dinner table conversation. I decided to throw caution to the wind and created away.

I personally believe it’s quite alright to use silks.











Silk flowers, bird cage, shells, and birds, from Evergreen Mfg., Osage Beach, Missouri.

Floral container, Haeger Pottery (garage sale find).

Pedestal, candleholder, dinner plate, and salad plate, HomeGoods.

Target 99 cent flatware.

Small gingko leaf dish, Pier One, Osage Beach. Saucer, Oneida Outlet clearance.

Glassware, Mikasa Outlet.

Small pitcher, Marshall’s, Osage Beach.

Large pitcher, Michael’s.

Silk flowers, with dark centers, Michael’s.

White pedestal bowl and covered butter dish, Mikasa.

Bee hive place card holder, Nell Hill’s.

Shell napkin rings and apples, All About Home (local shop).

Vintage napkin.

Wall paint color; Sherwin Williams Interesting Aqua, ceiling SW Topsail. These are on the same chip card.

The botanical prints are calendar pages, matted and framed in Michael’s stock

The dining table is Lexington Long Cove Fall River. A system of extensions allows the table to extend and remain round.

The dining room chairs are Lexington Long Cove Summerville. The slipcovers were included, when we purchased the chairs.



Alas, at the end of the day, I could not resist a tiny bit of color. The table is done, all in white, but just before publishing, I threw these little lime green silk blooms on the gingko leaves and snapped a couple of quick photos! I haven’t much will power, when it comes to color; especially this color.
