Tablescaping with a Farmhouse theme!

Hey everyone! We just returned from our son and daughter-in-love's college graduation. It was an amazing time and now I'm ready for a nap!
I don't think we slept while we were gone...all 3 kids(in college) seemed to have emergencies (money, cars, phones...) and needed help....I'm exhausted but happy.
Before I left I did put my little farmhouse table together! We have eggs everywhere because we have lots of chickens in our barn...these however are fake and do not smell when left un-refrigerated! Hahaha.... Egg trivia..if you crack an egg open and it is scrambled inside...DON'T EAT IT. That is never a good thing! Fresh eggs hold together in a skillet...older eggs splash in the skillet like a kid splashing in the pool...ok to eat...but fresher is tastier!
I found these weave placemats and napkins at one of my favorite thrift/consignment stores.
I made the little aprons and dressed the candles with them. I just love aprons!

The backside....
I've shown this stitchery before but it is a little wool applique I did...no pattern...just stared at some eggs and started stitching and appliqueing.

The yellow basket was also a thrifty find!

I'm playing along today with....
Please check the other participants and our hostesses for wonderful pictures.

Congratulations on the graduations!
What a sweet farmhouse table. I love the down home, cozy look and feel. And yellow makes me so happy! I me want to pull up a chair and have a big cup of coffee and talk for hours.
I would love to have farm eggs! They are the best.

Cute farmhouse tablescape! I can tell the difference in a fresh egg versus an egg purchased at the store...so glad we have fresh available to us all the time.

Hi Debbie! Thanks for the sweet comments on my red chairs. What college did your son graduate from? I can't believe they've already had graduation but my son's last final is tomorrow...so that makes sense.
