I want to invite you over for a visit and share with you my kitchen table. Like most homes, the kitchen is the center of our home and when we have family meals this is where we gather.
The table was given to me by my dear aunt Pam who recently went from living in a Traditional style home to a rustic log cabin and had no need of it anymore. I was most grateful to her for allowing me to have it. The table has a thick glass top with a concrete base, and seats six.
The chairs have traditional ball and claw feet. The seats are covered in a plaid fabric that matched my wall color exceptionally well I might say(must have been meant for me).
The place setting consists of a square burlap placemat, a rattan charger with a white scalloped charger atop that followed by my favorite white dishes, dinner plate and salad plate purchased from Marshalls.
Last but not least are the Bordallo Pinheiro Cabbage plates in green. I adore these plates and I am always on the look out for more however they are most difficult to come by.
On vacation I could not resist stopping by Home Goods. While I was there I found these purple and white napkins...score! I have a strong feeling about lavender and various shades of purple lately, I must be having a premonition!
The Napkin rings are from Pottery Barn and have "friends and family" engraved on each one.
The kitchen nook is surrounded by windows and gets morning sun. I usually keep the shutters open so sitting in this area allows you to enjoy the porch(the door to the left) and the back yard.
The centerpiece is a large orchid arrangement. I made it large to help feel the expansive area since we have nine foot ceilings and a lot of windows.
Does anyone notice something missing? Hint: it's green and shaped like a cabbage. I had a terrible accident with three of my lovely Bordallo Pinheiro Cabbage plates lets just say never trust a plate rack with your prize plates. I have not been able to replace them since, but I keep looking...
This is the lady of the house or as I like to refer to her: the official greeter.
Her apron changes with the seasons and occasionally she wears a hat, today she's wearing but what else, her pearls. She's a true southern blossom!
Thanks for stopping by
