Hello…and I hope this finds you all well.

With everything that’s going on in the country right now, you might be wondering why we are sharing a tablescape tour. There are actually two reasons. The first is that we want to provide all of our readers with simple living ideas that will help make these uncertain days a little easier to get through. The second reason is that the simple act of setting a table is not only familiar, it’s very comforting. When I was readying our table and taking these pictures, I was able to forget, for just a little while, what was weighing so heavily on my mind.

Our hope is that we can provide you with a break from the news channels, and some easy ideas that you can use in your own home. For those of us sheltering in place, we certainly have the time to set a pretty table…and for those of us in the necessary work force, pin this for later…and we will keep you in our hearts and prayers.

When it comes to tablescapes, just like everything else in life, I believe that simple is best. For this one, I combined neutral and blue accessories, and made sure to add some natural textures. The stars of the show are the blue gingham plates, which happen to be melamine, and very budget-friendly. spring table setting in traditional dining room

I was happy that I could use the mod podge terra cotta pots in a different way, and not just for plants. They would make very cute favors if you don’t mind giving them away! I simply filled the pots with kraft filler, and topped the filler with faux eggs.

I’ve mentioned many times before that when I want something that’s a little pricey, or not a necessity of life, I put it on my Christmas list. That’s how I got this beautiful new flatware. My daughter wrangled the rest of my family together, and they got me an entire set. I am totally in love with it!

This tablescape is a mixture of family heirlooms, Amazon finds, discount store plates, vintage pieces, and a craft project. By sticking to a simple color palette, and adding texture, it all came together in the end!

    You really know how to make our days brighter in these troubled times! Thank you so much. In Europe, I’m witnessing the overwhelming devastation being caused by the coronavirus. This is worse than you could ever imagine! Please stay safe, stay at home and take care of your loved ones.

  6. Mary L Scanlon says:

    Thank you so much for being a calm, comforting shelter from a kind of storm we’ve never seen before. I love to look at your site. God bless you.

  7. Hi Ann. I love to look at your posts though I confess I never do get around to trying out your ideas! I just wanted to thank you. Could I just point out that this situation is going on in our world not just our country. We really need to stop thinking of ourselves as part of one group as opposed to another group. We are all on this planet together and if nothing else I hope this virus helps us understand that. The color of our skin, the language we speak, the religion we practice (or don’t practice), the size of our home, the size of our bank account are not going to matter one bit when we are laying on our backs gasping for air. God bless us all. And let us come together!

  8. I couldn’t agree more Ann! This is so simple and yet so pretty – and I adore those little Mod Podge pots!!

    Happy spring to you!
