Sweet corn tablescape

I'm back from a short break. Family is the most important thing to me. I have been away from my blog so that I could help my daughter move home to Indiana from Virginia. First we had to remodel her new place and then the long journey to pack and move. Now that she is all settled I can get back to blogging.

I grew up in the country surrounded by corn fields. When I see those beautiful tall tasseled stalks it reminds me of my childhood. The smell of the maze while driving through the country is so refreshing. I started collecting Shawnee Corn King pieces several years ago and I love to display the pieces with my fall decorating. I recently was able to find 4 lunch plates so naturally I just had to set the table in sweet corn style. I picked my sweet corn yesterday to have on the table this evening. I can't wait to taste the sweet buttery flavor.

I used my Ivory Fiesta dinner plates and topped them with my Shawnee Corn King lunch plates.

My dear friend in IL owns a antique store and called me when she found these corn glasses. She knows me well. I used my yellow check napkins and folded them along with green napkins into an ear of corn.

I picked a corn stalk bouquet and used a tin milk pail for the center piece.

I found the salt and pepper shaker at a festival last fall. The casserole was a gift from my sweet husband.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing special memories of childhood with me.
