Earth Day Tablescape

 This week, Cuisine Kathleen gave us a challenge to make an Earth Day Tablescape...so here I am in my backyard, celebrating the beauty of our Earth. I showed my garden is this post.
  I'm celebrating Earth Day by recycling a shower curtain as a tablecloth! I loved the curtain, so I kept it. I bought it 5 years ago from Target.
 I'm also reusing my favorite dishes, chargers and silverware! I consider buying things like beautiful old embroidered napkins from estate sales to be a way of recycling too!
  The delft blue vase was my mom's.

  The first cucumber of the garden!!! Can you see it??? 
Tiny little green fuzzy thing behind the yellow flower!!!
  Happy Earth Day!

Beautiful table, I've been known to use a shower curtain on my table. Good fabric is good fabric:)

Gorgeous table! Your dishes are beautiful, I love them, the blue and white really is my taste! Love the shower curtain, I always recycle curtains, no matter where they came from. Have a great week.

That's what a cucumber looks like when it first starts out? Wow! I don't think I've ever seen that before. (I live a very sheltered life with my allergies!) I would NEVER have known that was a shower curtain had you not said it! Very clever move! They really are making fabulous ones these days! The table you set up honestly looks like one that I could (with about half a liter of allergy meds on board!) sit outside and enjoy. I can envision light-hearted conversation that evolves into something deep, then back to the fun. Time would pass and the world around me would be non-existent. Beautiful, Meredith!

This is the 2nd tablescape I have seen today using a shower curtain for a tablecloth and I am SO inspired! I am definitely going to give it a try! This is such a pretty table setting and all the more because it's outside! Your little cucumber baby is delightful! I always get excited when I get the first flowers on my veggies. Since I'm in the Midwest, it will be awhile before I can plant. Sniff, sniff!

You have a great blog! Happy Earth Day!

XO,
Janie

Really pretty and so romantic!

You would never know that was a shower curtain. Looks great with the blue. We tablescapers are the ultimate repurposers (is that a word?). I love using things other people have discarded or have loved and had no one to give them to.

Yum, I can almost smell that cucumber! There's nothing like the aroma of produce just off the vine! I like the browns and blues together--like the ground and the sky, perfect for Earth Day. Linda

Your table is lovely with the draping of the tablecloth (shower curtain). I like how you used the pretty garden setting and set the table with the beautiful Johnson Bros. china. Great Spring table! Pam

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

What a beautiful garden setting. We had too much rain today to even think about an outdoor setting. How pretty your blue and white transferware is.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Your table makes me want to go outside and just sit and enjoy the garden. Love the 'tablecloth'! It really is important that we repurpose as much as possible. Gorgeous!

Blue & white are perfect combination. The simple touch of the table makes the whole thing FAB.

Done well done.

Happy TS,

Lovely table, Meredith. I smile every time I see those blue and white dishes...they are so pretty.

Oh, I love your garden setting! Your table and chairs are so pretty. I love that you used an old shower curtain. It is perfect. Love those blue and white dishes. My table is in the garden this week too. No where else I would rather be in the spring.

Sarah said...

Your table setting is beautiful. I love the idea of dining in the garden. Perfect for Earth Day.

Beautiful outdoor tablescape. Love the shower curtain on the table, who would have thought! Looks great, love the blue china. Great post.

Kathleen said...

How pretty, Meredith! I love how the brown in the tablecloth changes the whole feeling of the blue., great chargers too. I can't believe you have cucumbers ready to start growing! But that's good, cause we will get them from your farmers in our markets soon! We won t have anything till July! Strawberries in June.
Thanks so much for linking your pretty garden table to Let's Dish!
