PB Tuscan inspired Outdoor Tablesetting

Do you ever see something and get inspired? I did when I saw this picture in the Pottery Barn outdoor catalog...I think it was a sale catalog. I thought to myself...I can do this!
The center container holding herbs looks like a chicken feeder...and well...we have a few of those here on our property...I knew the chickens wouldn't mind!
I found some outdoor summer placemats while thrifting and knew they would be perfect when spray painted! Yay...love a great spray painting project!
I bought a few herbs...the rest I shopped from my house and put them on a table outside on our back patio.
The dishes my hubby got for my birthday a few years ago...I'm a leap year baby so it has been a while.
I used a small plant tiered stand and placed small baskets on it with french bread. Fresh vegetables and fruit...and of course I thought we needed some candle stands so I added those for ambiance after the sun starts to set.

Glad you came by. See more tablescape goodies here @ http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/

I'm using the new post settings blogger has started...and I'm not sure what that blank picture above is all about...will have to do some homework on this one. Blessings,

I have got to get out more often! I have no idea exactly how a chicken feeder functions. It looks great on a tablescape, but I don't understand its function where actually feeding chickens is concerned. It's a mystery! :-) You did a good job with bringing the Pottery Barn image to life. Doesn't it feel good to get inspiration from those catalogs? Very nice! Have a great week!

Debbie I adore your chicken feeder centerpiece. I have been looking around for one. I too would be interested in knowing what paint you used on the placemats. Great idea! Thanks for visiting Take Six!! Have a super weekend!
