inspiration for a backyard barbeque tablescape

My inspiration for this table was a small cowhide rug and some neutral bandanas I found recently.
I purchased the cowhide rug a few years ago to use on my large round dining table as an anchor for centerpieces occasionally.
The cowhide was a perfect addition to a Texas backyard barbeque themed tablescape.
From there, I began gathering other things I had on hand that I thought would work well with my inspiration pieces and set the tone for a simple Texas backyard barbeque tablescape.
It was fun getting creative with this table trying to keep my usual neutral color scheme.
backyard barbeque centerpiece
The cowhide rug was used in the center of my patio farmhouse table to set the stage for a barbeque theme tablescape.
A pair of neutral cowboy boots was the perfect centerpiece.
I put a glass vase inside one of the boots and filled it with grocery store daisies and baby’s breath.
The boot arrangement was placed on a neutral color vintage book just to give a little variation of height between the two boots.
A variety of sizes of mason jars tied with twine also held small bouquets of daisies and baby’s breath.
They were placed down the center of the table on either side of the boots.
Baby’s breath is a very inexpensive filler for flower arrangements and a bundle goes a long way.
Lastly, I placed large tealight candles inside mini mason jars and sprinkled them throughout the table. The size of the tealights fit perfectly inside the small jars.
Candlelight is always a great addition to a dinner party table, and helps create a nice atmosphere.

backyard barbeque place settings
I was super excited to run across a set of enamelware plates at a thrift store right before I started working on this tablescape.
It was a set of 8 dinner plates and 8 salad plates. 4 black and 4 white of each size and all for only $10.
I used my really large white ironstone plates as the base, and layered it with an enamelware salad plate inside wicker plate holders.
These are made to hold paper plates, but I love to use them with a real plate tucked in sometimes.
Those cute neutral bandanas came in handy as a napkin. I folded them long and narrow, wrapped them around the silverware and tied in a knot.
They were the perfect topper to my plate stack.
Clear glass vintage goblets were the drinking glasses, but mason jars would be super cute too.
finishing touch to my Texas barbeque tablescape
For a little extra touch to my tablescapes, I sometimes like to embellish the chairs somehow.
For example, I have added sweaters to the chairs for a holiday or winter theme table.
Witches brooms on the backs of chairs was really fun for this Halloween table.
And I’ve even used football jerseys for a game day table.
For this Texas backyard barbeque theme, I added straw western style hats to the chairs at each end of the table.
They definitely say “Texas barbeque” don’t you think??
I hope you’ve enjoyed see how to create a simple Texas backyard barbeque tablescape!
It truly was a very quick and easy table to put together using mostly things I already had.
