Vegetable Garden Table Design






























I love French vegetable gardens - so artistic and lovely to see on a daily basis.

This year was my first try at growing a potager. Lots of cucumbers, even lemon cucumbers, lots of parsley, lots of sage, kohlrabi, kale, cabbages, lettuce, fennel, and just 2 acorn squash from 6 squash plants! We had lots of squash blossoms, but only 2 little squash. So this table celebrates my little garden - mostly of green vegetables. On a stone table on the back terrace, I used leather chargers with gold rimmed service plates and antique leaf majolica plates. Antique cauliflower cups and saucers are made by Wedgewood. I found them 25 years ago in Arkansas on a trip to the Table Rock lake area. Thick crystal glasses add a little sparkle to the table. Vintage check towels are used as napkins along with the French flatware to help give a "southern France" vibe to the setting. And of course, the vegetables from my little garden are the stars of the centerpiece. I've learned a lot by growing this little garden this summer - wish I had gotten more squash, but guess I'll try growing something different next year.

Oh My, what a lovely, rustic and gracious table. Absolutely gorgeous.
At first, I thought the birdbath was
a fountain on the table. That makes such a wonderful pic with that bird bath in the backdrop. Really a stunning table, I loved everything about it. Your centerpc was very creative as well.
Blessings, Nellie
