Toile for Two Tablescape

Ok, I have to admit this just came together as I
ran around the house ranting about the sky falling
I did not detect the least hint of concern
that the sky may indeed be falling.
As my husband sat comfortably in
his recliner, watching television, unphased
by the whole sordid affair!

Anyway, such as it is....
the tablescape.

IDK-I feel like something is missing.
Maybe a swath of burlap in the center of the
table, under the armillary and such.
Or maybe placemats, black or burlap?

I like the way the candlelight is reflected here.

The fleur de lis was cut using the cricut.

Happy Thursday Ya'll!
May you all remain unphased by
pieces of the sky falling today!

Sharing with the wonderful ladies at:


  1. Dena, I love the fleur de lis plates... and the toile. I just love toile, and black and white is one of my favorites! Your table is so well put together for throwing it together. No one would have ever noticed! Thanks for posting even under pressure!

  2. Love the toile tablecloth and your fleur dishes, Dena! I found a scrap/sample piece of toile fabric that has a linen colored background and rust red print that I plan on making into a table runner for my dining room.

  3. Dena, love your black and cream toile/fleur de lis tablescape with a touch of yellowish gold...perfect!

  4. Ooh, I likey! Love the colors! Be blessed. Cindy

  5. Love your tablecloth and plates. Everything looks great, Dena!

  6. I love all of these pieces.Very pretty! Thanks for sharing!

  7. I love your tablecloth and the plates. The whole tablesetting seems kind of English garden-y. Joni

  8. Beautiful Dena! LOVE LOVE IT! I adore toile! you have done a great tablescape!!! thanks for following my craft blog too. Hugs, Jenn

  9. Well if that is what it looks like as the sky falls, I say, Let it fall. It's beautiful.

    Great job.

  10. What a beautiful Frenchy tablescape, Dena. I love the fleur de lis plates and the colors are perfect. Love the toile tablecloth too...Christine

  11. Hi Dena, Wow, I would never have guessed that you just "threw" this tablescape together. I had to chuckle at the "sky falling", I'm new to this so I know that feeling. I did my tablescape on Monday so I would avoid that this week. I love that you used your Cricut to make the fleur de lis for your plates... and I love the toile table cloth. I just received a black dinner set from my husband this week, he's now supporting my new habit, ha ha! He is too funny!
    I can't wait to see what you do when you are not rushed. Have a wonderful, relaxing rest of the evening.

  12. Love the fleur de lis and all the bunnies!

  13. Those plates are fantastic - very striking and you've added just the right centerpiece and accessories with them. Love the toile runner too!


  14. LOVE this color scheme -- SO elegant, especially with all the garden elements you've incorporated. The pops of yellow/gold add so much!

  15. Oh how wonderful -- so Frenchy! Very elegant and pretty.

  16. Your plates are just wonderful. Love them with the toile. All the bunnies, finials and accessories are so pretty and elegant together. Beautiful tablescape. Hugs Marty

  17. I love the fleur-de-lis plates and the toile together. They look great together along with the other accessories.

  18. Some of my favorite tablescapes have been thrown together quickly. I think it is easy to "over think" the process. I love the black and white together. I think it is perfect as is...but I'd love it with round black placemats too (want to borrow mine). It was good to get back to blogging a bit today. I've decided that my mom wouldn't want me to be unhappy all the time and ignoring the things I love to do. heart is still in Florida with my parents, but I'm jumping back in to life at home too. Thanks for visiting me today.


  19. Hi Dena,

    everything looks perfect. I like your table.
    Greetings, Johanna

  20. You "throw" so well. This could be one of my favorite of all times. Love the colors and all the wonderful little additions. It's just beautiful.
    Thank you so much for visiting my blog and your kind words. Hope you visit often.
    I keep thinking....what would a sweet pickle taste like if it were dipped in chocolate. I might just have to try it.
    Hope you have a happy CHOCOLATE day.

  21. Beautiful Dena~~My entire kitchen is Black,Yellow and White~~so you know I love this!!

    Happy Tablescape Thursday and weeeknd!
