Tablescape Thursday--Holiday Planning Luncheon

Welcome. Thanks for stopping in I was just planning a luncheon for my daughter. We are going to plan our holiday menu's. Maybe you can help. Let me get you a glass of tea.

Here's what I was thinking a soup and salad lunch . . .

I have some favorite cookbooks ready and a pad for notes. It is a little hard to see but the little glass jar holding the pens is from my daughters elephant collection. The jar actually has an elephant on it. I can't decide if I should use the pig or not . . . What do you think?
Here's the plate. It is just a simple solid blue dinner plate. My Cowboy used them years ago for a breakfast that he had to do for his work. Being the plate lover I am I saved them.
The place mat and the runner are Guatemalan fabric. Cowboy went on 8 mission trips there.
And ya I know about the hideous scratch on the table. I cannot get it off. Go back to the top photo it is covered up!

I can't decide on the tea towel as a napkin or . . . or instead of covering it with the runner how about painting black. Yea that's it! But Cowboy has no vision!

Or this look with the bandanna print napkin. Or heck why not both!

Now here's me trying to decide whether to just go with my small collection of fiesta. The bowls are the new ones from Khol's I have no idea about the pitcher but I bought it over 20 years ago at an antique shop. So maybe it's old. Really doesn't matter to me. I just love the blue.

Here's that little piggy trying to get onto the table again. I was trying to shoo it off that is why this shot is a little blurry! Oh the candle sticks I didn't tell you about them. I love these. They are from Pier One and again at least 20 years old. (I feel old) I love them because the inside is open and I can also use them as a vase. They look great with one flower.

And here is a close up of some of our favorite cookbooks.

One last shot of the fiesta and the print I have on the wall. I thought I would share it. Notice the blue steps at the very bottom. That blue is my inspiration to paint a piece of furniture I plan to be adding behind the table.
Oh you have to run? Thanks for dropping in. Oh btw stop over at My Home Sanctuary I'll be posting my next Tablescape Thursday over there. I'll be revealing my furniture makeover too!Have a great day!
