I suppose I can hardly call her "company" since she's my Sister ... and that makes her Family any ol' day of the week! But by the time you see this, United Airlines should have delivered her to my doorstep (I wish!) and we'll be getting into who-knows-what.
I'm so glad!
Renaissance Man's garden is "glad" too ... even though he's out of town.
Sister's gonna LOVE his "glads!" Don't you?
In anticipation of her visit, I set a quick table for two ...
Here's a tablescaping tip ...
If you look closely at the top plate, you'll notice that the green is really more "mint" than "lime," but it works beautifully with the lime green placemats. That's because our eyes see the tiny touch of yellow in the floral and visually blend it with the green ... making it appear to be lime. If the placemats were mint, the plates would appear to be a much softer green.
Try it sometime. It works with other colors, too!
Even my napkins are really more peach than pink ... but look at the plate.
This time it's the yellow and pink that visually combine.
My all-time favorite Dollar Tree goblets ...
A salvaged mirror, thrift store candleholders, and silver ladles make for an unexpected centerpiece ...
Did I tell you my Sister's coming for a visit?
She's actually going to help me with my Saturday Come And Get 'Em sale to benefit Hope Unlimited for Children. Please pray that we'll be really busy ... and de-clutter a lot!
If you see anything in any of my tablescapes or either of my online shops that you're interested in, it may be available. I may also have just what you've been looking for in my stash of stuff. Just email and ask ... before Saturday!
Thanks to all of you who have already made purchases ... and to those of you who are considering things. On behalf of the children of Hope, you're the best!
Hopefully I'll be back Monday with before/after pics of my sale, but we'll have to see. Renaissance Man comes home that day. Oh, and I almost forgot (yeah, right) ... Little Man and Little Sir (and their parents) are coming that day, too.
I'm so glad!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fantastic weekend ... whatever you do.
I'll be linking to Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
