A Disposable Tablescape

Before summer ends, I wanted to set a casual table for lunch under the mulberry tree using paper goods, proving that it is possible to set an elegant table with paper plates!

It's hard to believe the "transferware" plate above is a paper plate! Pretty cute, don't you think?

The wooden cutlery even resembles the real thing!

The napkins compliment the toile pattern with the red border nicely. I've been waiting a long time to use them. They were from an estate sale and are "vintage."

With the wind picking up, the mesh domes will keep everything from blowing away.

The place mats are also paper. There are four different Italian scroll patterns on the table, all picking up the black and white of the toile plate.

A few galvanized elements add to the rustic setting.

The Disposable Tablescape:

Placemats: by Cake Vintage "Italian Scroll," NapaStyle
Plates: by Caspari "Festive Toile," Marshalls
Cups: by Caspari "Red Plaid," HomeGoods
Wooden Cutlery: Anthropologie
Mesh Domes: HomeGoods
Napkins: "vintage" from my own collection

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
I'm also joining Artie at Color Outside the Lines for Vignette Friday.
