When I first started blogging five years ago, I couldn't wait to create tablescapes using all my dish patterns to share with my readers.
I noticed over the years though, that my taste has changed and I'm now drawn to a more simple, yet elegant and rustic table.
Since we were in the wine country last weekend for a photoshoot of our newest home decor products, I jumped at a chance to create my first tablescape of 2014 using the Les Mechantes red and white ticking stripe linens.
The extra wide ticking stripe runners are perfect for laying across the table instead of lengthwise for an unexpected look. A twig placemat adds rustic appeal, while the white ironstone dishes keep the table simple and clean.
Clipped olive branches from the garden add a touch of greenery and lay nicely on the matching napkins.
I love the stitching detail on these napkins!
Vintage French ruby red glasses add that touch of elegance and counter the rustic placemats.
You're probably thinking, what about Thanksgiving?
I know, I jumped right to Christmas for my inspiration using these linens.
Besides, all my Thanksgiving plates are in storage!
The table linens also come in a black and white ticking stripe, which I can't wait to use, as well as denim. Lots of mix and match opportunities!
Wishing you a wonderful week and Thanksgiving.
Let the holidays begin!
