Layered Table Runners

I created this tablescape in an attempt to bring some additional color to my blue and white d├ęcor scheme on the screened porch.
The floral runner was a scrap of fabric leftover from a sewing project so I just hemmed the edges. Then  I decided it would look nice with a pink border but I didn’t want a permanent pink border so I stitched up another runner in pink that was slightly larger than the floral runner. My thought was if I could layer dishes, I could also layer runners.
Next I added pink napkins.
There is enough blue in the floral print runner to coordinate with the blue and white chair cushions.
I am not a big butter eater, but I love the individual covered butter servers. I envision these filled with pickles, salsa, or sauce to accompany the meal.
Pink spray roses were picked up at the grocery store. I added a little sprig of asparagus fern for greenery.
The big lantern stays on the table all of the time and I brought the mercury glass votives from the inside table.
Now we’re ready for food and friends!
I’ll be linking to Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
