Tablescape Thursdays

Between Naps on the Porch is hosting yet another Tablescape Thursday and despite the fact that it looks like Colonel Mustard decorated my dining room--I decided to participate.
My slipcovers are actually being made as we speak. They will be white with box pleats! Very excited. The lovely yellow ones (that actually look way worse in person) came with my craigslist purchase. The green rug will also be making its exit sometime soon--in favor of seagrass.

I did find these mustard yellow plates at Marshall's that work pretty well.

I know I've commented on this before but I ADORE your placemats! I found some placemats at the dollar tree last weekend and ALMOST bought them so I could try this and then I chickened out because "we don't use placemats"...I think I'm going back. I just love 'em!

I love your placemats! And I know you are switching your rug for seagrass ( which I love love love!) but I think your rug is darling! I hope you can use it elsewhere! I have the hardest time getting rid of stuff that I really like when I redecorate a room... I try to push it off on someone I know so I can visit it! SIlly I know! Anyhow... lovely as always!

Love the placemats!!! Where did you find the plain seagrass? I've looked around and can't seem to locate them.

Where did I find the placemats or a plain seagrass rug? The placemats are rattan and I got them on ebay. :) The rug..I have yet to hunt down. :)

Love your tablescape! Placemats are great...and the chandelier above is really beautiful! I think I see La Rochere glasses. :-) It's exciting pulling a room all together...can't wait to see your slipcovers and new rug. This would be a great Met Monday post with your "before and after." So glad you linked this tablescape...and so great finding your blog! Susan

Very nice 'scape! Those yellow plates are beautiful! I'd love to get slip covers for my DR chairs, lucky you! Will be anxious to see them.
