"cheers to junior year" tablescape

hopefully you saw my first tablescape post, earlier this week? if not, be sure to check it out since it features the first way that I styled our table for company. the following day, we hosted a "going away" dinner for my sister as she goes back to college for junior year. since our saturday night tablescape was set for four people, I had to make some changes to fit seven people at our sunday table. I love reworking flowers to make a totally different feel for a different occasion.

I used the same napkins as saturday, clean ones of course :) but I paired them with our casual china and galvanized napkin rings. we used our table leaves for the first time, which lengthened the table decor space. I took the mason jars out of the wood box and spread them out to better fit the space.

I am in love with these galvanized napkins from crate and barrel. I didn't put them on our registry, but when I went to the store to make an exchange, I saw them and had to have them! I initially wanted galvanized chargers, but I think the napkin ring is just enough of the 'farmhouse' touch.

"cheers to junior year" menu:
olives and charcuterie board
greek salad
fettucine alfredo with linguine and zucchini noodles
homemade pizza
garlic bread
mini tiramisus in mason jars

we had such a fun weekend hosting friends and family,  I love repurposing flower arrangements like here and here. I also loved trying some of ina garten's recipes, they turned out perfectly. do you have a dish or a chef that you always make for company?
