We were fortunate enough to start our tablescape design with real horseshoes that Pat borrowed from a local Farrier. They acted as the inspiration to the entire table. Yes, and once again, History repeats itself, I have hay all over my table (and on the chairs, on the floor, on my Dachshunds, everywhere......)
Over view of the table
The place setting
Yes, we just used the flatware last week, but it was the perfect choice for this week's table - "Montana" by Gourmet Settings
Here's a close up of one of the inspiration horseshoes - Pat laid them all around the table
We decided not to use the salad plate but here's a close up of one of them - there are four different centers
The dinner plate
Montana Lifestyles........made in Thailand.......hmmmm....something is not quite right here.....???????
We just got these new chargers - there were only four in the store. We had to have eight of them for this table - Rayleen at Pier 1, once again, saved the day and got four more for us and in a hurry.
Yes, I know, you don't really need a water glass but most of the family does not drink "the hard stuff" - so water it is......
We found this beautiful, large figurine at "The Tailwaggers" - a local thrift shop dedicated to animal welfare. Every purchase/donation goes to The Sequoia Humane Society.
I tried to get a better picture for you of the "barbed wire" that Pat wrapped around the center. It is actually western-style garland that she bought years ago
The napkin ring rope? Last week's belt on Ralph's pants......
Pat used tin cans for rustic flower vases
