These Boots Are Made For Walking


These boots are made for walking so

 they’re strutting their stuff

as vases. . .


Blooming with Hydrangeas, Elderflower,

Alstroemeria and grasses!


And providing for some table inspiration

and western flavor to pair with

Mikasa’s Belmont Blue Flowers Dinnerware.


 I dressed my Belmont Blue Flowers table last week with additional blues and flowers~

hydrangeas in a watering can, blooming napkin rings and a flowered patchwork quilt.

Mikasa Belmont Blue Flowers-001

This week, I took my cue from the color of the blue dinner plates which reminded me of soft worn denim~

suitable for a table for a hoedown or cowgirl dining!


In addition to boots, I lassoed some bandanas,

a jute runner, and the same quilt~

reversing it to paisley and play up the cowgirl side.


I wrangled a set of

 Ball Heritage Collection Mason Jars 

introduced this year in celebration of

the Perfect Mason 100 year anniversary!


 Heritage Collection Mason Jars are tinted with antique blue and have commemorative dates embossed on the back.


They’re sporting a little western wear~ wrapped with a bandana, holding dried beans and votives.

Two different blooming varieties of salad plates,

square and round, are offered in

this Mikasa Gourmet Basics

handcrafted collection of stoneware.


And two different napkins are corralled together~

red checks with a bandana~

    Love the double napkins corralled in the napkin ring.

    Love this table, Mary! You won’t believe this, but I used the red checked napkins in today’s table post, too.

    Wonderful table…love all the different textures and linens.

    Very cute! I think this table would look great for Independence Day….there’s nothing more American than cowboys!

    I really do love the Belmont Blue dinnerware. :D

    Have a blessed Sunday!

    Love, love, love this themed table, Mary! It’s great to see how one set of dishes can be used so many ways.

    So much fun! My favorite part is the blue jars dressed with bandanas, that is adorable! Love the beans too, and of course the boots look fabulous!

    So so cute as only you can do.

    This would be a great table for rodeo time in Houston. Seeing the hydrangeas makes me impatient for them to start blooming in Maine.

    Great table, as always. The jars look so cute wearing their little bandanas. The thing that really struck me though were those cute boots. I also had to wonder just how tiny your feet are. My boots would look like storm trooper boots on top of a table.

    Another really wonderful post!! I wonder how many hours you put into just one of your tablescapes.??
    I just love , too, that you use quilts on the table. I have several at the lake, but have not ever used them that way!
    And, the photography ….you are so very talented.
    Thank you!!

    You know I adore all the tables you put together, but this one has given this Texas gal a special smile. How clever to use the paisley and the boots for vases. I can see this table being perfect for many occasions here in TX. I recently purchased some cute cowgirl napkins at a local museum store. You are inspiring me with some fun ideas for a table of my own. Thanks!

    very cute, i am loving that reversed quilt, yee haw ridem high! let me count the way we are twins, i crack up as i scroll down, glasses, silverware, jars, mine too are on the table but filled with daisies, and i got rope, but not for steer this week, but for them thar nautical feel with bandanas and my sea worthy napkin rings too. girl we do love the basics girl, we can stretch them to look like they are from sea, to your carolina rough and tumble table, its just always fun watching you play! now if only my boots were made for walking, i am have been shuffling around sore as heck these days planting away at sea dream :-) fun and festive… AGAIN!

    I love the quilt. It’s all so festive for any picnic or patriotic holiday!

  14. June 9, 2013 at 11:43 am

    I love it Mary! Red, white and blue always looks great, add in the cowgirl theme and it’s too fun! Love the napkins-Happy Sunday:@)

    I LOVE the quilt and bandanas, Mary! What a great blue to use with your Mikasa dishes, it just makes the dishes pop. Your photography is wonderful and your tables never cease to amaze me.

    All I can say is FAB-U-LOUS!

  17. June 9, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    Amazing how the same components can look completely different with a bit of ingenuity…Another striking table, Mary!

  18. June 9, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    This is so much fun! I showed it to Hubby and he ran upstairs to hide his boots. :)

    This is so darn cute! I once did a western themed event for couples at the end of a summer marriage study. I cut out the back patch pockets of a ton of old blue jeans with pinking shears and used them as utensil holders. I still do that table at home for celebrations for the men in the family.

  20. June 9, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    This tablescape is beautiful!


  21. June 9, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Love the paisley with the checks and bandannas and of course, the china! But the boots as floral containers make the whole table! This is a fun table that would be adaptable for many events.

    Yeepy-ya-O, this western table is so fun, and would really work with a BBQ!
    Love the Blue Canning Jars, I hope to find some myself!
    Thanks for sharing all your wonderful pictures !!

    Another brilliant table, Mary! Your creativity knows no bounds! Love the colors and theme! XO, Pinky

    Love the boots as vases and those dishes are beautiful. Another amazing table and your fabulous photos always make me happy.

  26. June 12, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    That is terrific! It really looks like some cowgirls and boys woud be dining there. The boots are great and I love the bandanas too.
    Are your hydrangeas blooming? My white one are starting to pop. It is a huge bush and there are hundreds of blooms coming. The others should be blooming soon, I can’t wait!
    Thanks for posting this yehaw table to Let’s Dish!

  27. June 12, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    Those boots just make this table! The bandana napkins really go so well with these dishes. And are perfect on this quilt!! So wonderful. xo marlis

    I love the addition of the pearl couscous to the Cowboy Caviar. It made me think that quinoa would be fabulous too.

    It couldn’t be cuter with the bandana and the boots and then the touch of femininity with the flowers. Makes me want a jar right now!

    Wow, I love this table! That quilt is gorgeous, Mary.
    Have a wonderful week…

  31. June 13, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    I already know I would love your couscous salad! All my favorite ingredients and similar to those in my next post (if I ever find time to post it!).

    I think I have the same boots in a blond color! Wore them to a wedding in Vail last year :)

  32. June 14, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    I love your table! The dishes are just perfect!

    Cute, Cute, Cute!! What makes it so cute are all those little details! I love the rope just meandering through the table. Checks and paisleys are always a favorite! Beautiful photos!

    Stopping in via The Tablescaper.
    What a fun table! I’m going to copy your table theme for a chili cook off I will be hosting in the fall!
    Thanks for sharing.
