A Coffee Themed Table

It's Tablescape Thursday!  I am excited to post this.  I have been viewing many beautiful tablescapes over the past several weeks which are linked to "Between Naps on the Porch."  I have decided to participate this week.  Enjoy!

I found these great plates at Hobby Lobby; each with a different design of a coffee house.

I also ran across these place mats with a coffee house theme.

I added a pretty butter yellow plate and red serving plate to accent the yellows and reds found in the plates and placemats.

I tucked the flatware into the folded napkins in the goblets.

And a white cup and saucer.  You must have coffee!

And added cute red vintage coffee pot salt and pepper shakers, a crystal sugar dish, and a creamer with stir straws.

The centerpiece is a candle tucked in a hurricane surrounded by coffee beans.

Along the server, I set out a vintage coffee set, coffee syrup bottles, and a fall arrangement.

This is the finished setting. 



  1. Oh cute - Live the little chefs. This looks like a delightful place to have coffee and chat.

  2. Love your coffee theme table. This is darling!
    Tablescape Thursday is always a treat to get to see all the neat ideas that are shared.

    Hope you'll drop by my Kansas Home for a spot of tea...
