My place setting consist of wicker chargers, yellow plates, and red and orange salad plates.
For every ones names, I used river rocks that I painted with Chalkboard paint, just like Pottery Barns version, much less expensive though. They really are fun, and Logan really loves them.
For the centerpiece , I did a couple of different things. Just to show you how to change things up with the same pieces. Here is a great looking hurricane with pottery base. Or is it?
The hurricane is actually a glass cloche that I flipped over. I flipped the pedestal bowl over too, it was a lucky fit . This is a Pottery Barn bowl I recently found thrifting, it was a lucky find. :)
I used gourds, pumpkins, pine cones, and berries to fill the cloche. You will see a third version further down.
So are you wondering about my napkins? I made them, yep, you heard me right, I sewed. My grandmother (she was a seamstress) must have been helping me from above because I actually didn't mess them up and my machine didn't freak out. I can't believe I made them , and they are reversible. Holy cow!
I used the floral fabric on all four and the polka dots and plaid on the backs.
I really love the floral print and it coordinates really well with the camp blanket, so I used it for the front of all the napkins.and it also led the way to introduce red poppies and sunflowers, two of my faves!
I put the sunflowers in red spray painted tin cans (from the 4Th of July) How campy is that? :)
and I used tin cans spray painted orange for the flatware (they will eventually be jack-o-lanterns :)
Here is the third version of the flipped cloche, filled with a little bit of sand for weight and a candle and berries. I really love it like this. Also, I almost forgot, I took the ugly rubber guard off of the cloche and it left a gummy residue that I couldn't get off, so I glued some grograin ribbon around the glass to hide it. I like how the black looks with the striped ribbon too.
I also made the napkin rings with mini grapevine wreaths and a flower, they really tie in with the wicker chargers
Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed dinner at the campground! :)
I hope you're inspired!
