Before I share photos of my tablescape for Kathleen's challenge of "The Good Earth" I must admit I put this together in a hurry and last minute before leaving for my trip to Texas.
I didn't want to miss joining but you might see a few 'spots' on the dishes and other less then perfect shots.
The first thing that came to mind for this challenge was earth colors and these new plates and bowls I had picked up at the thrift store were just right
The black, brown and grey colors seemed perfect!
My other inspiration was the adorable mushroom place card holders I won from Kathleen in the fun St Patrick's Day Blog Crawl. Perfect for such an earth-y table.
You can see the pattern on the plates in this photo. I added a black plate, rattan charger and a black napkin to the setting.
The flatware is from World Market and a perfect shade of putty on a brown placemat
Vintage brown wine glass and a black champagne glass were added to the table
A green plant was the easiest centerpiece (and what I had...) I added a sweet bird on the rattan charger in the same colors as the plate pattern
These Mushroom salt and pepper shakers were found on the World Longest Yard Sale and have been waiting for just the right tablescape for them to appear
Very simple but it adds to the theme of
Thank you Kathleen for hosting such a fun party
