There are so many great ways to source your eclectic tabletop -vintage linens, repurposed percale vintage sheets, thrift store finds like mismatched plates, and tumblers, use jam jars for flowers, and purchase ribbon ends from craft stores.

Layer lace, use old one off vintage pieces, and even use old nicely pressed handkerchief as napkins. For a brighter look, add elements of bright colors such as blue and red.

I love mismatched napkins with vintage tablecloths -it’s okay if there is a mend or stain, here or there, it’s better than a plastic table covering. Life can be lived on an second hand covering. Have you ever seen an Irish Linen tablecloth still in its package at a garage sale, clearly preserved from the wedding day? ….

The woven blanket could also be used as a table cloth. Love this bright eating spots, designed for little one’s eating, and a backyard celebration. Source.

This fun and easy salad recipe from LoveGrowsWild.com is so lovely, we made it last summer, but this winter added some frozen peaches (canned from fresh works too!) Because of the sweetness of the canned fruit, you can skip much of the honey in the dressing. Add shrimp or grilled chicken if you like…

Ingredients

  • 8 cups Greens, mixed
  • 1/2 Cucumber, large
  • 2 Peaches, fresh (we used canned / frozen)
  • 12 Strawberries ( we used less)
  • Toppings: 2 cup Goat cheese & 1/2 cup Almonds
  • Dressing: 4 tbsp Olive oil, 2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar & 1 tsp Honey, salt & pepper
