John Deere Tablescape

This week's table was designed by Pat's daughter, Jennifer. Inspiration came from her Dad's family. Grandpa Silvio owned a dairy farm on the Ferndale Bottoms and worked it all his life. The family still retains the farm, but now it is rented out. And while the old John Deere tractor is long gone, the memories still hang on.......

The place setting

Flatware is ceramic handled "Radiant" by Noritake. 

Jennifer loves Fiesta dishware - no surprise that she used a Shamrock Green dinner plate

The charger is Indigo Black "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa

Burlap placemats  were the perfect choice (complete with hay......sorry. Needless, to say, hay is EVERYWHERE....)

Mini hay bales and miniature tractors were used as place card holders

Dollar Store beer pilsners hold gray and yellow napkins

The centerpiece was simple - small hay bales and a life-like miniature farm wind mill

Where it came from:
Burlap Placemats - Tuesday Morning this year
Black Charger - Indigo Black "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa from eBay and Replacements
Green Dinner Plate and Bread/Butter Plate - Shamrock Green Fiesta by Homer Laughlin from Macy's
John Deere Accent Plate - by Gibson from eBay and Replacements
Flatware - "Radiant" by Noritake from eBay and Replacements
Beer Glass - from the Dollar Store
Napkins - Handmade by Pat
All Hay Bales - from Michael's
Metal Wind Mill - from Art & Old Things (our favorite antique store located in Fortuna, CA)
Metal John Deere Tractors -  at a local John Deere tractor shop

We will also be joining Susan for "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:


  1. I love, love, love this. My son-in-law works for John Deere in Iowa as a Mechanical Engineer. This table is a hoot and I love it! I am going to have to find some of those plates for sure, but the whole table is so creative and wonderful. Valerie(

  2. I always look forward to your tablescapes, Y'all are amazing. Keep up the good work. Love, your biggest fan, Janice.

  3. Please share with Jennifer that she did a fantastic job setting this table! As a farm girl, I love everything about it. Even the flatware handles look like corn or stacked bales of hay! What a collection you have...plates, accessories that are tractors...endless inspiration here. I enjoyed your post very much!

  4. I can't tell you how much I like this table. You just may find that I copy it for a dinner with my SIL who loves his John Deere machinery and dresses himself accordingly when he is bush hogging or mowing. I would get lots of points for being so clever!!! Thank you.

  5. Oh boy this is a great one! We have a John Deere garden tractor and hubby grew up on a dairy farm and there is a big one there! I didn't know there were dishes like this! Love the little mini straw bail- perfect accent! The flatware is really unique- love the color and shape. Love the centerpiece- that windmill really takes it over the top!
