Dining Room Redo



This is the arrangement that has been on my Dining Table for some time.


Then I won this wonderful burlap runner from Sissie @ Sissies Shabby Cottage so of course I had to play. I scrunched the runner so I could show off the ruffle and the Bon Appetit.


Then I tried to find things that looked frenchy to go with the runner.


A frenchy pitcher, some silver, a white tray and candles.


A frenchy compote and old world flatware worked. A dove, some tassels and look at the cute little Paris tag she included.


A casual bouquet with such pretty colors.


Don't you just love this gorgeous runner. I am so thrilled. It is even more beautiful in person. Thanks again Sissie.


While I was at it I did just a little tweaking of the buffet. The tall finials and a plant are enough with the soup tureen. Adds just a little more color.


I am linking up with:
Laurie @ Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie for Favorite Things Saturday.
Susan @ Between Naps On The Porch for Metamorphosis Monday
SNS @ Funky Junk Interiors

Be sure to visit all of these gracious hostesses and see what everyone is up to.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I always appreciate your visits.

  1. I really like the re-do. It's so fresh. And those dark hydrangeas are really something. Funny thing, a few years ago I was visiting my SIL in Texas and I kept going by her dining room flattening out her runner. She finally caught me and told me it was supposed to be scrunched up. I thought her cat was doing it!!!!! Lot of help I am, huh.

  26. Marty, you were the perfect person to win that beautiful runner, because you knew just how to display it, and also especially since you've been adding French accents to your home. Your vignette is Frenchy beautiful! You always think of the best things to put into a vignette, and I just love coming to see what you come up with next. Your buffet looks so pretty too. Thank you so much for linking this beauty to Favorite Things Sat. laurie

  41. Marty~
    This is such an artful display. Your burlap runner came just in time for fall. Burlap and fall go so well together!
    Your incorporation of so many lovely elements makes this a visual joy! The different heights, textures and that darling silver picture frame are elements I will have to try to reproduce.
    Masterfully done, my friend! Just beautiful.
