I am so excited to come to my 50th post. And just want to say that I love blogland and all of the great creative people I have met.
This week's feature is one of my favorites, Tablescapes! I have talked before about how I like to use hat boxes under the second layer of fabric to lift the platters off the table. Once the serving pieces are placed, the fun begins!
For this one, I used lots of berry and pinecone rings and pics to add some interest.
Choose a dramatic centerpiece for your table.
And fill in with fresh greenery (sprayed with glitter of course) from your yard if possible.
Try to use some color coordinated platters and bowls too.You can use something different, like these mini urns for your utensils.
This bowl is more interesting on a pedestal with a pinecone berry ring.
Now I have taken the same tablescape, left all of the shades of white and changed from burgandies, greens and gold to pinks and silver. Which do you prefer?
The dessert station.
What's nice too, is that any of these ideas can be used on a much smaller scale, like just for a cocktail party or dessert station.
So if your dinner is going to be a sit down, here are some simpler centerpiece ideas.
White roses with fresh canberries in a trifle bowl. Love this one! Looks perfect with just a few candles on the table.
A low lying arrangement like this one allows you to see your guests accross the table.
And finally, some staggered candles and mini trees make a very pretty table.
Please send me an email if you need any ideas for creating your own tablescape.
