It's almost time for another Tablescape Thursday with Susan of Between Naps on the Porch! We're back in the sunroom this week, but the table's rather more formal than last time -- no pink flamingos today, no Tropicana canna leaves, no thrifted milk glass bud vases, no bright blue salad plates. If you missed that colorful table, it's HERE.
Even though I'm using vintage Limoges china, I've kept it relatively relaxed overall (taking into consideration that it's an informal room). There's no tablecloth, and the centerpiece is casually arranged.
Once again, I had to set the table quickly. It was 4 o'clock, and I knew the afternoon light wouldn't last much longer. I could have had all afternoon to work on it, if not for the fact that a local estate sale was calling to me (naturally I responded to the call!). The only decisions I'd made in advance were that I wanted to use the pretty Limoges bread plates I'd received as a gift from Valorie, the Visual Vamp, and I'd planned to do a tiered centerpiece with garden flowers arranged on silver serving pieces.Here's the centerpiece: crepe myrtle, knockout roses, garden greenery, butterfly bush blooms, and zebra grass plumes.

It won't be a long-lasting arrangement, but it should be fine for a day or two.
Oh, and if you missed my video collaboration with the talented Julio of Beaux Mondes Designs, here's your chance to see it now!
