Rustic Dining

When searching for unusual ways to set a table with a more rustic appeal, i just loved this unusual table runner of a plank of wood. Looks fabulous combined with silver teapots holding an assortment of green and white flowers. a wonderful clash of rustic and classic.
Always love rattan placemats and finally have my own set I'll show in another post. Looks wonderful when teamed with green such as the water bottles or greenery in the table centre.
Wooden boxes, especially when stamped with text, filled with wildflowers sets a perfect scene for relaxed dining
perhaps a Sunday lunch with friends.
Hanging table would seem to be a moveable feast under your choice of tree in the forest.
If dining alone what a wonderful new take on a dinner tray,
eating a delicious soup
with rosemary and a rustic bread.
French Larkspur definitely knows how to create a magical using simple but rustic elements
As does Dreamy Whites in this lavender field.
Wire table centre with simple bottles sets a lovely scene of relaxed and peaceful dining.
Absolutely divine setting using a metal or whitewashed box to fill with garden roses for the table centre
With the printed burlap and string for serviettes
creates an exquisite setting softened by the whites and roses.
Who could resist enjoying lunch with beautiful friends on a sunny Sunday in Spring, Summer or Autumn?
Have a beautiful week mes ami!
