A Simple Luncheon

Hello Friends~ ~ ~

You are invited for a luncheon come on in and pull up a chair. We are having a big salad some crackers and Iced tea. It was so refreshing last week when the temps were in the 80's around here for a whole week. I was lovin' it.

I used my Buy Of The Century silverwear which we have been using every day since I got it. I paid $25 for 6 place settings of silver. Can you believe it? I mixed it today with my black handled vintage knives that were a gift.
The napkins are kitchen dish cloths I bought last summer on the cheap and I really do use them a lot because they wash up so nicely. I got two different patterns. Love plaid.

The glasses are Princess House from years ago.

Please notice the placemat set of 4. Mom has been sewing again and she would love to sell these placemats. If you have an interest they are $15.95 plus shipping for the set of 4. The table runner is an additional $7.95. I love reds and this set has an Italian flair with the olive oil and salad bowls. It really is sweet and sets a nice table.

I choose to only use placemats today which I hardly ever do. My dining table has a glass top to protect the wood finish and I don't like the noise it makes when the dishes are moved around on it. I much prefer the silence of a tablecloth. How about you?

Here is a shot of the placemat set. Mom really does nice work. She is a great seamstress still at 89 years young.

This is another set Mom has for sale if you are interested please let me know. These cupcakes are so cute. They would make a sweet party table.

I'm linking up with Susan at
for Table Scape Thursday.
Please visit her for links to everyone who joined in for the fun.

Make It A Wonderful Weekend

How pretty, Ahrisha! I love the place mats! And I think it's a great idea to use the dishcloths for napkins. I have to try that. Probably better colors!

Everything looks wonderful! :-)

Very inviting. I like the classy simplicity. It's so beautiful. And I like a tablecloth myself, but am trying to use more platemats to let the wood show through (and save myself some laundry).
THanks for posting it.

What a beautiful table -- your mom's table linens are beautiful (and love the cupcakes)! Yes, the silverware was a find! I, too, love plaid and stripes, so I love your red napkins. Great tablescape!

Jane said...

Such a pretty table! I love the dish towel "napkins"...especially the striped one. And 6 place settings of silver for $25? That's unbelievable!
Good for you!

Your mom does a nice job with placemats.

Love the cupcakes! What a pretty table. Thank you for stopping by Yoga Gal- to answer your question, I used a glue stick to glue the wrap, picture, and matte, and I am just crossing my fingers that it does not dry out! :) Katie

This is just so pretty. I love the color of those dish cloths. They just pull the whole look together. I'm catching up on my blog reading. I've missed so much.
