French Country Everyday Table Setting

Friday, May 8, 2020

Everyday table settings on an antique French Country breakfast table include white dishes, scroll flatware, and a small blue floral pot with a lobelia bedding plant. 

French Country Everyday Table Setting is simple
Nothing fancy for everyday, but still beautiful in its simplicity.

French Country Everyday Table Setting with lavender and bee coasters
Summery coasters with lavender plants, beehive, and buzzing bees are for setting down icy drinks during the day.

Late afternoon sun casts long shadows and highlights the blue lobelia. 

French Country Everyday Table Setting with dishes and scroll flatware left out between use
White plates and white scroll enamel flatware sit on the table instead of stored behind cabinet doors.

A long oval white dish is a perfect size for holding the flatware. Its scalloped edges complement the flatware handles and the white plates' edges.
