An All-White Tablescape

I'm sharing this with Kathleen over at Faded*Charm for White Wednesday.   I thought it would be fun to do my first tablescape for Tablescape Thursday over at Between Naps on the Porch (isn’t that a delightful name?), and since I’m into white these days, I also chose my personal favorite
white foods -- vanilla ice cream and marshmallows!

…with cool water served in Cambridge glass flutes I inherited from my Grandmother.  
The carafe was bought at a store in Bellport, NY that sold all-white décor called
The Bellport General Store owned by designer Tricia Foley about 15 years ago.

There are mismatched lace doilies under the glass flutes.

A white butter pat with an ‘F’ for my last name on the table for no logical reason.
I just thought it was pretty.

I wish I had a ruffled skirt on my plain $20 Target chair slipcover.
I tried to make one and ruined a plain but perfectly good piece of linen.
The tablecloth is Rachel Ashwell's Simply Shabby Chic from Target as well. 
There's a matelasse spread underneath to encourage a plush look - I read that somewhere once.

I hope you enjoyed dessert, and come back for more soon!

Until next time, stay shabby!
