We all have had rushed, crazy days, haven’t we? Days when we just don’t have time to cook a nice meal, let alone set a nice table? Sometimes you just have to call for food delivery. At my house, we sometimes end up eating from the lap instead of from the table ~ does it ever happen to you? Our kitchen table is as much a desk and mail catcher as it is a dining spot!
With food delivery on the way and the screen porch we’re building all enclosed I quickly set up this little buffet on a nice afternoon.
The plates are vintage Pyrex, as is the pink bowl. The bowl is a 2 quart casserole, size 024, in the Desert Dawn pattern. My Artsy Daughter made the birdhouse at a Habitat for Humanity store, and the glasses and napkins are junkin finds.
I’m just giving sneak peeks for now. The serving piece is the antique Hoosier cabinet I’ll be repainting soon, hopefully. The porch is nearly done, just waiting for floor paint and exterior trim.
This vintage metal glider and the matching bouncer chairs will be a big DIY project. As you can see, the glider needs major work, and we’re novices, but we’re hopeful novices! Then we’ll be painting it aqua.
The coffee table for the porch is an old piano bench I bought from a yard sale. Those things make great coffee tables, because you can store magazines inside.
So this is just a kinda-sorta-tablescape, not really a tablescape, but you got to see some vintage dishes at least. I hope you’re having a nice spring, and those of you up North and in Canada, I’m really, really trying to send warm thoughts your way!
To see how the porch was coming along a couple of weeks ago, read Porch Progress.
To see the rest of the finds that came with those plates, one of my very first posts, read Big Week of Junkin.
