Let’s Go Camping Tablescape!

 A recent trip to Target and a swing by Spot’s Playground led me to spy these cute canteens!  I knew these were coming home with me!   Just like that, an idea for a camping tablescape came to me!

Canteens aside, I needed a couple of other accent pieces for my table.  A pair of adorable little tent ornaments, complete with a “fire” and a log  were perfect.  Place settings for this table were so much fun to put together!  My woodland placemats from Pier 1 were  a natural choice! A few river rocks tucked around my camping vignette just added to the outdoorsy feeling.  
Years ago I bought these pinecone dishes from Target knowing they would be perfect for winter holidays.  These are still ideal at Thanksgiving and Christmas and I bought enough pieces to feed an army!  Some pieces of this pattern are available from ReplacementsThe  salad plates were a Home Goods find and are Bonjour’s Sierra Pine pattern.  These are a nice complement to my dinner plates.  Flatware was easy, my hardy stand-by Ikea wood handled fit in perfectly with my camping theme.  I even wrote an entire post about this versatile set in Best Ikea Flatware.  This set is still available direct from AmazonI had been waiting to use my aluminum canoe serving dish until I had the right elements for a tablescape.  When I spotted those canteens, I knew this was occasion.  There she is in all her glory!  This lovely  Mariposa Brillante Birchbark canoe has graced many tables.  Often filled with finger foods, this is a treasured piece of mine. What is the camping without the woods?  A pair of artificial trees from my Christmas stash flanked the ends of the table.  
Little packages of S’mores fixin’s were found at each place setting as a sweet favor for guests to take home.  Even without a fireplace, a microwave will do the trick and create a yummy, gooey treat!
