I recently had dinner at my friend’s sister’s charming home and was so inspired by her tablescape that I snapped a few pictures…loved everything she did! And by the way, the dinner was delicious and company was delightful!
She started by draping her large round dining table with a crisp white table cloth! Isn’t that always a good start?! The centerpiece was a creamy white Italian urn that she filled with wheat grass nursery packs she purchased at a local pet shop! I never would have thought of that! She tucked in white hyacinths to the grass and finished it off with Spanish moss. She made a simple wreath with a branch of artificial white berry and placed it on the rim of the urn. The pictures don’t do it justice…it was wonderful!
The next layer was small groupings of votives in front of all place settings with mercury glass, pearl bead and wire, bejeweled and plain glass…
and next to the candles she filled simple glass vases with a sprig of a white flower that I can’t identify! Her china pulled the table together with its thick gold bands. Loved the upholstered chairs!
The whole table just screamed spring is here! It was raining cats and dogs outside the entire day, but the dining room (and her entire cozy and cheery house) said c’mon in and let’s visit a while! And that’s exactly what we did!
