" It was kind of solemn, drifting down the big still river, laying on our backs looking up at the stars, and we didn’t ever feel like talking loud, and it warn’t often that we laughed, only a kind of low chuckle. We had mighty good weather, as a general thing, and nothing ever happened to us at all"
-The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
To celebrate Huck Finn, I wanted to create a rustic tablescape in greens and browns to look like a river. I am not so sure that it looks anything like a river, but I had fun with it in any case. :)
I made fresh Blueberry Limeade
1/2 C sugar (to taste- my limes were sweet)
1/2 C Blueberries
2-3 C water
Squeeze limes, add sugar to lime juice, press blueberries through a mesh sieve, add water and stir, stir stir! Serve over ice, garnished with lime slices and blueberries.
Made a little sleeve out of ripped packaging paper for the silverware
Added a lantern
Made a centerpiece out of a galvanized container filled with the grass that seems determined to steal my garden from me...
And set a framed quote on the table. It's a lovely, calm quote.
And there you have it. Honestly, roughly 800 times during the writing of this short post, I have had some little person come to me with a massive crisis that I had to attend to, so it feels like I have been typing for hours. I better go before someone breaks another bottle, cries because their food fell on the floor, or steals a toy from a sibling. Happy Friday!
