Tablescapes are becoming one of my very favorite things to create in my home. I really like for them to non-traditional in a way. Like most of my decor, I enjoy shopping my own home for items that I can bring together for a cohesive look or theme without going out and buying a bunch of new decor. I mean, if it’s alreayd in your home it is likely gonna already fit into your overall theme. In addition to not wanting to spend a ton, I wanted to create a tablescape that would wear well for an every day fresh farmhouse look. In other words, I wanted to assemble it and be able to leave it and not have to think about it again for a while. Today, I am sharing the result of me shopping my own home and bringing some elements together to achieve this look.
Keep in mind that I already had these things on hand. I bought these items with no intention of one day bringing them together. This look started with some simple but precious plates from none other than, the Dollar Tree. In my opinion you seriously can not beat their dishware. I paired the plates with galvanized chargers from the Dollar General I bought when they released their farmhouse collection last year, a thrifted table runner, which I am certain is orginally from Target, linen napkins from Amazon which you can get HERE, green napkin rings from Hobby Lobby and vintage wooden bowls from Custom Southern Co., a local vintage shoppe.
I didn’t really have single item that would been porportional to the length of my table, so I created the “feeling” of a centerpiece with a few items. I chose an assortment of ironstone dishes from my collection and paired them with vintage books, empty brass candlesticks, a few aged terra cotta pots and some faux herbs. And to tie it all together, a bread board and large bowl for texture. This type of centerpiece can easily get a little too busy. I recommend a soft patterned runner or a bare table when working with multiple items.
Don’t be afraid to offset the symmetry a bit. Here I used a bowl of aritichokes for an added authenticity for that perfect every day look.
