Picnic Tablescape

Who says you can’t set a pretty table when you’re at a campground or park? You can! You can use pretty paper plates, plastic or melamine, or enameled metal dishes like I used recently on a camping trip with my family.

I thought some old-fashioned-looking root beer bottles would be cute with this tablescape.  Oh yeah, and root beer went well with the meal, too.  *afterthought*

Glad I brought those pretty gardenias from my front yard at home.  They looked so pretty in the camping cookware set’s matching coffee pot as a centerpiece. camping picnic tablescape enamel dishes

I had different but coordinating place settings here.  I had two with a black “napkin” (a handkerchief!) and white flatware: camping picnic tablescape enamel dishes

I found this flatware recently at Family Dollar for something like $3 per set, so it was a no-brainer to get both black and white sets!

The sun was just setting and played very nicely with my camera.  camping picnic tablescape enamel dishesBird’s eye view:  camping picnic tablescape enamel dishes

Oops, almost forgot the cute little candle lanterns I brought.  Just in time to sit down with our taco salads – easiest camping meal ever.  camping picnic tablescape enamel dishes

I hope y’all enjoyed my campground picnic tablescape, I had a lot of fun putting it together.  We never had such a pretty table while camping before!  I set a VERY colorful table the next day.  I’ll be showing you that one in a couple of weeks.  (Tablescapes are now being brought to you every other Wednesday here at We Call It Junkin – I have a whole publishing schedule I’ve set for myself.  I’m organized and nerdy cool like that.)

  1. Hi Dawn, how pretty your camping table looks! Your family must feel special knowing you’ve taken the time to do that for them. The salad looks great, too. Enjoy making memories!

  2. What a fun tablescape even at a camground! Loving the red, white and black color theme and the camping dinnerware works so well in your setting:) The addition of the black lantern completes your tablescape beautifully. Thanks for the share and for your sweet visit. Have a lovely week!Hugs,Poppy
