A Southern Family Dinner

It's Tablescape Thursday time and I wanted to do a simple southern tablescape that my family would actually enjoy eating off of!  Sweet tea, curly leaf ferns and fun dishes set the way for a comfy family meal.

Come on in....














My assistant Phat Fifi!





Something is missing??

Aww, much better.  You don't get much more southern than sweet tea!



All this work tuckered Fifi out!

Bowls *Baum Brothers* Asain Collection * Goodwill
Bread plates * Johnson Bros.* Goodwill
Serving bowls * Mikasa* Italian Countryside*
Salad Plates* Bordallo Pinheiro* Ross
Dinner Plates* Longaberger
Placemats & Napkins * HomeGoods
Napkin Rings * Pottery Barn

I found this book at the library yesterday:

Come back and see me tomorrow for a napkin folding tutorial!

I hope you enjoyed my southern family tablescape.  My kids love Wednesdays when we dine in style!
Go visit all the beautiful tablescapes hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch!

Great table. It looks great for summer or fall. The napkinrings are great. Your 'helper' is quite the poser too! Enjoyed. Lori L

I love all the napkin styles...how fun. I get really bored with the ones I do. Your table setting is very pretty. It puts me in the mood for fall. What I really love is your table!
