Autumnal table for a supper with friends.

November 1, 2016

My lovely friend Rosemarie emailed me a week or so ago to see if Kerstie might be interested in some doilies she had from her mother.

She emailed photos and Kers was so very happy to have them because Kerstie runs a small vintage wedding rental business and these doilies will be spectacular for her tables.


So when Kerstie came for the weekend, I asked her how she will display the doilies.

She said her favourite way is to use them as a table runner.


As we had some friends coming for supper, we decided to have a little fun and set an autumnal table.
Goodness, have you seen anything as lovely?


It’s wonderful and exciting for me that my daughter and I share this love of vintage things.


Now we just have to open the wine and wait for our friends to join us.

Thank you so much Rosemarie for thinking of Kerstin. 😀

    Your table looks wonderful. There is something really nice about setting a table with vases, doileys and intention. And I love collecting colourful doileys too
