Again, I didn't have the time or the inclination to start running from store to store to find something that inspired me. So upon browsing around, I found these fabulous bowls. Aren't they gorgeous? They only had two, but that's really all I needed to put this look together, and besides the bowls are the perfect size for my winter soups.
Everything else I already had, but these bowls really were the inspiration I needed. Now I told you I was looking for table linens and I found none, and you may think my idea is cheesy, but once again I was smitten with yet another role of wrapping paper to use as a table runner. Isn't this also gorgeous? No different than using paper place mats; right? It makes a stunning backdrop to my table setting, it's economical, and, better yet, no washing or ironing needed.
I only wish I had photographed the sides of the bowls for you. You can catch a little glimpse of them in my next photo. Now, as we junk'n girls go, you'll notice I had to substitute my pretty silver flea market spoons for a black spoon. Reason being, I only shop at fine establishments like the local yard sales and the fleas, and these cute black utensils were missing the spoons. What's a girl to do besides improvise?
Sometimes we need to think outside the box to find our inspiration and that's what this table setting is about. Thanks for stopping by.
