This months Urban Jungle Bloggers task is to present “Planty Table Settings”. This is my contribution to the subject. I always have plants around me in the kitchen, so welcome to my jungle.

The “second breakfast” is just that, the second breakfast on days when I go to the gym and come back home and need to eat something.

Mainly my plants are in the two angled kitchen windows, and sometimes on the end of the table where I keep all that is needed with the eating.

The very small pot on the table contains basil. The pot was handed out at Ikea recently on one of their events. The seed is actually growing… which is a first for me when it comes to seed from Ikea…

For lunch with a friend, another kind of planty table setting, where the rosemary tree and a large pot of fresh basil have moved onto the kitchen table. Forgot to put glasses on the table though…

I often vary the place mats on the table and have several in various materials, sizes and patterns.  Above I remembered to put glasses on the table…

Planty table setting for dinner. Photo: ©nini.tjader.2016

For a planty table setting for dinner I used one of my inherited old linen table cloth, hand-embroidered by my father when he was young at the first half of the previous century. One of my orchids was moved from the window to the table together with my new ginkgo biloba plants. A cutting (unintentional cutting) of a narciss from the garden was placed in a thin vase to add to the theme.

There is still plenty of space left on the table to place the food, salad, wine etc there. This is a table setting for two. The two small dogs on the table are old ones I’ve inherited from my parents. They are silver-plated (need polishing) and are used for putting away your knife on instead of putting it directly onto the table cloth. The small glasses with a green foot I’ve inherited from my grandmother.

Welcome to breakfast, lunch and dinner at my kitchen table, in the company of some of my plants. At my place all meals are eaten at the kitchen table, in the kitchen jungle.

Awesome table and I love your inherited items. They are special, aren’t they?

Yes the inherited items are special. Just have to remember using them… The knife-dogs are always there, but I tend to forget I have those old embroidered linen table cloths.
