Old World Style Tablescape

My table is inspired by the antique map salad plates that I found at Pottery Barn at 75% off this past weekend. 


A stack of several plates add several layers grounded with my Southern Living at Home Cantebury Chargers . 


Earthenware pottery filled with greenery provides a centerpiece that resembles something that might be found in an archaeological dig. 







A cozy setting for two.  My tablecloth is a rust brown and cream check....in the pictures it looks much more like a red gingham. 




I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for her weekly Tablescape party.  If you want to view some eye candy, visit Susan and the other party participants to see their contribution this week. 

All The Best,
Pin It!

I saw the map plates in the store a while back and wondered how I could use them, I couldn't come up with any great ideas. You really did. Your centerpiece is beautiful and perfect with the plates...love the look. Nicely done.
