This is the table I created:
Here's How I Created It:
I started with plaid placemats that I found at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Plaid always conjures up a country kitchen look, so I thought it was a good way to begin! Unfortunately, the color came out very orange in the pictures, when really there is more of a rust tone to the coloration of the plaid. This is significant, because the flowers in the plate are more of a rust color and really do match the placemat well.
I chose my brown basket weave chargers as a base for my dish stack.
Here is the new dinner plate I found. It is marked HOME, but there are no other identifying names.
I then added the salad plates. Isn't that floral border delicate-looking? I also like the way the green on the plate mirrors the green on the placemat. It's funny how items purchased separately and from different sources can sometimes coordinate so well!
I then added fruit decorated napkins I found with a matching tablecloth at Anna's Linens when the store was closing (I surely do miss that store!). I felt the fruit pattern mirrored a country look, and the rust and green colors went well with the placemat and dishes. I found the "terra cotta" flower pot napkin rings at BBB and decided they'd be a good fit for this table.
I completed the place setting with green goblets I purchased at Pier One, and my Treble Clef flatware from World Market.
My centerpiece started with a narrow burlap runner and a small tray I found at TJMaxx. I have other trays, but I thought the cream-color of this tray would work well with the color of the plates. I added green napkins as filler, and placed terra cotta flower pots filled with marigold napkin rings into the tray. I then added rust-colored tapers and tea light candles to complete the centerpiece.
So that would be my table for a country breakfast!!
