Camping, Fishing And Summertime Fun….yes it is that time of year.
A wonderful time of the year.
Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer and our thoughts turn to summertime fun of picnics and for those of us desiring such…camping and fishing.
It is also true that while most people like picnics…many do not enjoy camping or fishing.
But perhaps you might enjoy a virtual camping and fishing trip or tablescape in this case.
You know the kind?…. where you don’t have a personal interest or work involved but looking at it from the outside in.
Full disclosure…about 6 years ago, I set up a similar tablescape using the same salad plates and a few pieces of the same decor.
On that tablescape I started with a red plaid tablecloth, a bale of hay and a real aspen stump.
On this tablescape, We start with a brown plaid tablecloth and we set it with wood slice chargers.
Next is the plate stack using blue enameled camp-ware plates.
On top of the blue enamel plate is a salad plate showing the way to the campground…or a moose….or fishing…or perhaps where one might find a duck.
The flatware is also wood handled atop a brown napkin.
The water glasses are old coke mugs.
The enamel coffee pot and white enamel mugs bring memories of the lake and hot steaming coffee on a cool Summer morning!
The center piece is a wood slice with aspen wood candles and an aspen water pitcher.
I couldn’t help but use my favorite black bear holding salt and pepper shakers. (He was in the older tablescape too!)
The table setting is simple…but remember we are in the woods camping…(virtually.)
The vintage fishing creel with lures is also virtual…because I have not located it in my stash , but I featured it in my original table scape set-up.
Here is a photo from 6 years ago.
In the 2017 tablescape, I used blue enamel flatware and blue enamel mugs and scattered fishing lures around the table.
I also used red and white camping lanterns as you can see in the following photos.
In the 2017 tablescape, I brought out the enamel fry pans, as well as a cast iron fry pan.
In this current tablescape, I used the coke water glasses/mugs.
As you can see, the 2017 tablescape and the 2022 tablescape are two very different tablescapes, even though a few of the items are the same.
Now I want to go camping, I mean “glamping”.
I no longer camp in a tent…we travel and camp in a motorhome, one with inside plumbing. LOL
Thanks for stopping by and Blessings always.
