Garden Wheelbarrow Tablescape

Anything "Vintage Garden" gets my attention, so when I recently purchased a new magazine called "Southern Tables" by Hoffman Publications, I immediately fell in love with a featured tablescape that brought all the goodness and bounty of Summer's first harvest, indoors.

I had a similar whitewashed small wheelbarrow made of reclaimed barnwood, 
so I filled it with a variety of faux  garden veggies.

(The wheelbarrow has made an appearance before on the deck

 But I felt like my rendition needed a little more personality, 
so a ceramic rabbit tureen that I made years ago hopped inside.

Gardens and rabbits just go together.

You know you have too much "stuff",
 when you completely forget about a set of green transferware china!
Yes, I totally forgot that I had this great set of Enoch Wedgewood Kent china,
that had been stored in the side door of my breakfront.

On one of our recent trips to St. Louis I found three of these wonderful consume/berry bowls and salad plates in "Crown Ducal, Florentine England". They are very old and have a black transfer rural cottage  scene on the bowls and plates that read "Little Comberton". A gold rim and raised green fruit design on the border of the plates/saucers had me smitten.


Green Glassware is Martha Stewart

Last week I found the cute little whitewashed Pottery Barn napkin rings that look like flowerpots. Had to have them...and next week I'll show you another fun way I've used them. Woven placemats were from TJ Maxx a couple of years ago, and the linen napkins are just a few of my vintage collection.

I like to set a fun and casual place setting,
so small whitewashed garden pots with a faux lettuce leaf 
hold the silverware.

And vintage French Seed Packet Labels attached to a tag
can be used for place cards. 


and Chicoree Frisee

more coming up with the French Seed Packets...

A small ceramic cabbage covered veggie bowl / soup tureen.

...and a French Rabbit Tea Towel from my daughter from Easter.

A French botanical print brings in the colors of Spring and Summer.
