I try to have a fresh tablecloth and some flowers on the table every day. It's just a little thing I like to do to make our house a home.
The truth is, though, I'm as happy to have a vase full of weeds as I am to have fancy tea roses. We do have some flowers in our garden, but today I went more for casual than classy.
I found goldenrod growing behind some bushes in the backyard and the rudbeckia seeded itself in our garden from our neighbour's garden. I love the simplicity of yellow with yellow and paired it with a cloth I brought back from Bangladesh that echoes the yellow daisy shape. I used a new jug that I bought at Fort York in Toronto where Kate and William worked as guards this summer (thus the date 1811 on it - although I'm not sure why it is 1811, not 1812 for the War of 1812 or even 1813 when the Battle of York took place).
Do you put fresh flowers on the table?
p.s. I'm going to try to post a new bouquet every week paired with a tablecloth from my extensive thrift store collection.
