No one loves polka dots more than me! And Red polka dots....well they're just about the BEST!!
Take a peek at my latest Family Sunday Dinner table scape.
I began with a white table cloth, then added a wide red polka dot piece of fabric, layered with a smaller burlap runner on top. (Remember people its all about the layers!!) Next I put a fairly large round vintage linen doily in the middle. OK now the tablecloth part was done.
Alrighty now on to the centerpiece... so off to the garden I went to find as many roses as I could. Luckily we had red, bold pinks, light pinks and yellow. Don't you just love roses?? I also put a bit of greenery in too. Makes it nice and full. Then came the apples! I always think of apples when I think of September. Beautiful crisp apples. Love the red and green ones!
Next I got out the gold chargers to accent my new red polka dot plates that I found at Tuesday Morning. (And even on CLEARANCE!!) Yep, I was lovin that!!
I used my ever versitle gold cloth napkins and learned how to fold them like this from Pinterest. (Isn't Pinterest just the BEST!!) They were super easy to do and I really liked how the gold flatware looked peeking out. Then for a final touch, I used white or green silk flowers for just a little pop!
I really liked how it all turned out. At first I thought that the red polka dot was maybe just a bit too much, but when it was offset with the gold and florals I changed my mind and thought it ended up pretty perfect.
The best part I must admit though, was not the decorations or the dinner, but having all my family here sharing it with me!
