I have a friend with a darling daughter who is engaged to be married later this spring and I offered to host a bridal shower for her. The bride wants to use vintage linens, lace and burlap - a popular theme these days. So I've created a table runner, of sorts, for my tablescape.
I started with a square of burlap, about 60"x 60" and tuned it on the diagonal. Then I layered random vintage doilies down the center of the table. Some of these I already had, and I purchased a few more at a favorite thrift store. You can find these at most antique stores for as little as 5 or 6 dollars apiece.
I love the slight variation in whites, creams and ivories. Some of the crocheted pieces are extremely intricate! I'm sure they took hours upon hours to make.
They remind me of snowflakes.
Next I lined up mason jars and some French bottles filled with flowers and herbs from my garden ,
scabiosa, yarrow, chamomile and baby's breath.
This was a super easy table to pull together. I'll share more about the shower in another post!
I like to join these parties
