A CASUAL AUTUMN DINNER WITH FRIENDS

A CASUAL AUTUMN DINNER WITH FRIENDS

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday! I hope that you are having a wonderful week. I can’t believe that it is already November! Where did October go? It will be Thanksgiving before we know it.  Next week, I will share some tips that will hopefully make your holiday entertaining easier.  Also, the following week, I will be participating in a holiday recipe blog hop that will hopefully give you some great ideas for your holiday meals.

Recently, Mr. Bleu and I hosted some great friends for a casual Autumn dinner.  I didn’t want a fancy table, just something casual but pretty.

For the underpinning of the table, I chose my favorite navy blue tablecloth. I know that you see me use this linen a lot, but it goes with a lot of different looks.

The place setting is simple.  I chose a burlap placemat, navy and white napkins, Mikasa English Countryside plates, and American Fostoria crystal.

Shopping the house, I chose a lace table runner and a Fall arrangement flanked with gold mercury glass candle holders for the centerpiece.
