Garden Posies and Cruet Sets

Garden Posies and Cruet Sets maybe something of a bizarre title but it all came about during Fathers Day. I had invited many of my family to enjoy a Fathers Day meal at home and the dinning area of the house resembled a bistro, I kid you not. As it was an occasion I thought I would make a little extra effort and decorate the tables.

A visit into the garden with my snipper's and I came back with a selection of odd flowers. Days of rain had left many of the flowers is a sad and soggy state so I did have a limited choice. But with a little creativity and some sweet little vases I created three simple fresh flower table decorations. I also realised that I must have a thing for cruet sets. Ignore the two sets of standard pots of salt and pepper I have for every day use, I also have a further 3 sets! A set of birds, a set of pigs and a silver set, although the silver set is mainly used when I host an afternoon tea.

I think they add a little fun and humour to a table setting, particularly if you are entertaining visitors, its something a little different and often a talking point.

How do you make your table setting stand out?

  1. I love the idea of fun cruet sets, I generally do a formal floral arrangement.


I really do appreciate you leaving me a comment, and I enjoy reading them all.
