I have been working on learning how to make various valances starting from a pattern through to board mounting. That's the fun part of my week! The frustrating part of my week is Quickbooks! I just am mired in bookkeeping catch-up.

That is a really good idea. Thank you!
I am drafting my own pattern.
Am I to understand that a fable cloth does not absolutely need to have a drop?
I think Donna said she was using something that was good for her presentation, but too small for a tablecloth
Okay. I may have missed that point as I arrived a few minutes late.
In reference to using what you have on hand…as a young wife, I longed for a canopy bed but could not afford one from the store. I went to the woods and cut down four small trees, gathered grapevines and bittersweet vines and constructed my own natural canopy bed. It was beautiful but I soon had to dismantle it due to the leaves eventually drying and falling to the floor. It is a fun memory.
Abigail, that is so great! I love this idea.
I usually do a Thanksgiving and Christmas table. My Christmas table, I take the center of the cloth napkin and smooth the rest down and place it through a Christmas ornament. Used the ribbon that hangs the ornament and the ornament sits on top of the napkin and the napkin on top of the plate. Clear as mud...
I love hydranea's I am trying to grow some in my yard. Designing swags is an interest of mine.
I have an opinion to share:
Would you use that tablescape without napkins, and if so how and when do your dinner guests get their napkins?
I have to type - I don't have a mic attached right now.
I use themed salt and pepper shakers to decorate with on a table, that way everyone have salt and pepper available and they look cute.
At Christmas, I use four plastic poinsettia silver placemats placed next to each other in the center of the table as a runner and then my candles and a floral centerpiece.
I don't think you should keep your table set all the time - that is good for a photo shoot, or when 'staging' for sale. The purpose of beautifully setting your table is to thrill your guests. I'm a designer, when I go in someone's home and the table is fully set I feel I'm interrupting a party.
yes, hens and roosters and Christmas theme. I have tiny presents, the bow part is pepper and box part is salt, everyone gets their own salt and pepper.
A floral centerpiece, candles, runners, are great. but dishes, no - they'll get dirty
I agree about the dust!
A favourite trick of mine for clients or at home, is to make tablecloths in solid colours, usually a shantung with matching napkins - pastels, bold, etc. and then use an overlay of contemporary floral lace outlined in black. This look can go from holiday themed - Easter, general springtime, etc. to classy black and white.
This was really fun, Donna! I enjoyed it.
Paula! That is beautiful!
Thank you-Such a wonderful time spent together.
have a great weekend everyone!
