A Table Setting with "Toile de Jouy Placemats"

 Hello sweet friends !

I wanted to create a tea table again with my "Toile de Jouy" placemats I made with leftover fabric from my chairs. 

I bought this coral beautiful material to reupholster my dining room chairs as it's been 25 years I hadn't, since dear hubby gave me this gorgeous Italian style dining room.

Therefore, while visiting my daughter in Miami, two years ago, I bought this lovely French "Paisanery" Toile in such pretty coral that goes with everything I place in the table.

So here is my tea table with my green dinnerware for eight, except I'm only using the teacups and cake plates, with my reticulated dinner plates as chargers and flowers to match. 

Hope you like it too. Enjoy it.

Here I'm using my green china, which brightly pops up against the coral of the placemats.

Hubby said...Wow, matching galore ! Made me crack up hahaha...
You can see I bought deliberately the coral flowers and pink, as well.

As you can see, I had enough fabric to make a runner too.

And if you look up the window, there's also a 'Valance' that I was able to do with more leftover fabric from the chairs.
Very exciting !

Thank you so much dear friends for your kind comments, you always make my day !

  1. Dearest Fabby,
    Wow, that was a great turn out for the Toile de Jouy placemats.
    No doubt, you are happy that they got done.
    The fresh flowers and the green china are so perfectly matching the placemats.
    You sure hold on to that special gift of yours, to assemble a perfect table setting!

  2. Thank you for sharing this wonderful post keep your awesome work
    I have many hobbies. I love to travel and read. But my favorite hobby is cooking. Let me tell you why! First, I'll tell you a little bit about why I started cooking. Secondly, I'll give you some information about what I like to cook. Third, I will say how I use the Blog ẩm thực for cooking.

    When I started cooking, I was 10 years old. My mom wants me to be a chef. She has always believed that girls have to make different types of food, because one day they will get married. In my country, it is normal for girls not to cook. I feel lucky because I can cook many dishes. Now that I cook some of the dishes my children and husband love, I become happy and proud of my mother and myself. Foody

  3. So lovely dear Fabby. The coral matches your chairs. The green dishware is stunning. Love themplacement of green apples. You never disappoint. Enjoy the week ahead and thank you for sharing at Love Your Creativity.

  7. Fabby, this looks absolutely stunning!! I love how the lace mats look with the chairs!! I have a roll of fabric that I have been waiting to find the time to upholster my Dining Room chairs in and I know there will be enough left for place mats. So thanks so much for the inspiration!!! Thanks too for stopping by and for your kind words!!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!
