The Old West!
I started off with a homemade red and white gingham tablecloth (that my mom made) with a cute eyelet ruffle. I love this tablecloth! Next, I made a burlap runner for the center of the table. Because my dining room table is square, I went with a square runner instead of the traditional rectangle.The plate is a cute daisy print with black dots.
I used cow bells as a name card holder... tied on with various patterned red, black and white pretty bows.
I used small mason jar glasses with a bandanna hankie napkin.
We will only be using these little jars as water glasses because...
...we are having Rootbeer!! IBC to be exact. And these fun glass bottles are being held in a horseshoe wine holder... but who needs wine when you have a frosty rootbeer! ;)
There is a miniature lantern on each of the four sides of the table... reminding you of the old west and chuck wagon days. At least that is what it reminds me of. ;)
A few rusty tin tea light holders and candles inside rusty old horseshoes.
A look around the table...
And for the centerpieces... I used four different pieces so each seat had a different view. The first was the Rootbeer bottles in the horseshoe tower.
The second piece was a buckaroo riding a bronco on a tin holder filled with dried sunflowers and hydrangeas.
The third piece were a pair of vintage red cowboy boots...with a scene from the old west. I filled the boots with grain-like filler and dried red flowers and berries...to keep with the "old" theme of the table.
Next, I had a display of an old, used lasso and a distressed, cream colored barn star. Of course I just had to tie a red and white gingham ribbon to give a feminine touch. ;)
I hope you enjoyed a taste of the Old West! For many more beautiful and creative tablescapes, don't forget to visit Susan's Between Naps on the Porch!
