Rustic Western Dinner

I have been wanting to join Tablescape Thursday for some time.  I make dinner every Tuesday for my daughter and her family.  My daughter teaches high school math and is raising three boys and a husband (you have to know my son-in-law for me to say that...ha).    Anyway, I like to make the tablescape special when I have time and last Tuesday, I decided it would be a Rustic Western theme because we were having top sirloin. 

The runner is a piece of gunny sack fabric I had and the rustic scrolled candleholder and candles of rustic colors add a punch of color.  The pheasant is fake and the ceramic boots are used as vases with artificial flowers.

The ceramic boots were purchased at Kohl's last year and are used here for vases.

The rustic tin chargers set the mood and the Fiesta plates and bowls are so versatile.  The napkin rings were purchased at Walmart around Thanksgiving time and have a leaf motif but still go perfect with the chargers and candleholder.  Adding a feather to the napkin gives a touch of whimsy.

I love to add a touch of the past with the vintage binoculars.

It was easy to put a gunny sack on the back of the dining chairs.  I do have to caution those that have allergies to maybe wash the sacks before using them because I had to take them off the table and chairs before we were finished eating because they caused my allergies to flair.  But we did play some western music and had a fun time.  Yee Haw!

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.  I enjoy hearing from you.
