First Tablescape on New Florida Dining Table

I finally found a dining table for our formal dining area. I gave the one that came with the house to my daughter next door.

I ordered the dinnerware set from Joss and Main and they were waiting for me to open when I got here last weekend. I got the table and chairs from them too and no, they are not paying me for mentioning them, lol, but I love shopping their site.
The natural fiber plate chargers are from Wisteria.

Goblets from the dollar store and high ball glasses from Marshalls.


Postale runner and napkins.

Fish S & P shakers I brought from Natchez home.

The next 2 pics do not have anything to do with the tablescape but I just want to share the hydrangeas I bought from Trader's Joe yesterday. I left them on the coffee table to enjoy before I plant them this weekend. I hope they survive the Florida heat.

I love the colors!
That was a really fast tablescape. I don't have much tableware here yet but I think I have enough plates cause my kitchen cabinets are starting to figet full. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed seeing the table as much as I enjoyed creating it. I have been busy with grandkids that's why I missed joining tablescape parties for 2 weeks.
