Table Setting

I run across these pictures of a table I set once for a ladies luncheon. This is a rerun you can say. Some of you may not have seen this because it was a few years ago. I have been blogging 7 years now, hard to believe.
I started blogging for self entertainment and guess i'm still entertaining myself with all your lovely blogs

          My bouquet of button flowers set in middle of the table on one of my antique dresser mirrors                                                    
   I used ironstone white and cream colored platters for our luncheon plates and my brown and white calico staffordshire cups and saucers
 Do you see my white and cream colored buttons on the table? Then I made each lady a little wooden sewing thread spool with vintage buttons on it. One of the ladies who was at this luncheon called me later that day and ask if she could buy all the dishes I used for this luncheon. I said YES, I have since found some more cups and saucers for myself
This was so much fun. I would like to do it again 
I am ready for this weekend Indoor Garage Sale at The Holiday Inn west convention center here in Columbia Missouri. My kitchen, well you can't walk through it for boxes and piles of things I am 
 taking out there to pass along for someone else to cutter their house with my treasures LOL 


Here is another luncheon I set a table for 

Linky parties I joined in

  11. What a fun setting!! I know...I can't believe I've had my blog for nearly 9 years now. Sadly, I just write once a week anymore, but I still enjoy doing that and staying somewhat connected to my old blogging friends....and making new ones too! Happy Pink Saturday! Dana

  12. Thanks for dropping by my blog for a visit, spending a month in Florida is heaven compared to the long winter we have in Ontario.
    I like your button themed tablescape and the crafted flowers look awesome.

  15. I can't think of anything better than blogging for self-entertainment. I like your idea to fill up the jar that holds the button flowers with buttons. I have a jar of those mussel shell buttons so thank you for the good idea.

  17. I love anything sewing themed and your button bouquet is darling! Last year a 'quilt' themed dinner was held at my home for a friends birthday. Another friend made darling button flower arrangements coming out of glass s&p shakers for each of us. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
