to decorate the table in my vintage shop.
But it will take me weeks to months to get them finished.
So I came up with a great solution to use until I do get them finished.
I got out all of my vintage dresser scarves.......the really pretty and heavily embroidered ones........
I pressed them............
then folded them in the middle to make them
place mat size
I put a pretty vintage tablecloth onto the table, and then the folded dresser scarves.......
Don't they look just like place mats?
I then placed vintage dishes onto the scarves......
some are sets
some are mix and match.
I also placed vintage tea cups and saucers.......
vintage hand embroidered napkins and vintage silverware to accommodate the plates.
To finish it all off, I placed a vintage bowl, candle holder, vase, relish dish , butter dish top, gravy bowl, and salt and pepper shakers in the middle.
And now this is how the vintage table looks
in my vintage shop.

Also, I placed my vintage chairs with the hand cross stitched backs around the table.
It all looks inviting.........just waiting for the food and guests to arrive!
Won't you come?
