When you walk into a room and the table looks amazing…does it make you happy? If you answered yes then prepare to smile as we look at some elegant, cozy, simple and just plain pretty tablescapes. I have a feeling that you are going to get many ideas from this selection that you can apply any day…any time and for any occasion!
For all you cottage lovers out there…do you think there could be a more adorable and gorgeous setting. Look at the chippy chairs and that fabulous tablecloth. The table is set to perfection and the flowers could not be dreamier. Now to find out where they got that tablecloth? If I find out…you will be the first to know!
A simple vintage setting creates such an inviting feel. By simply stacking the right plates just so you have a mini work of art. It is really just like selecting the right colors and shades for a painting. Only an array of plates are you palette.
Does it fascinate you that ordinary items can instantly be transformed to extraordinary but adding pink lemonade and some pretty blue jars? Look at this tablescape…it is so pretty and most of us have what we need to create it right in the cabinet. Mason jars…white plates and napkins…whip up some lemonade and then of course the chippy metal pitcher with cherry blossoms is the perfect centerpiece. This is a cottage delight…don’t you think!
Over at lamb & blonde a lot of beauty is happening. By adding gorgeous flowers…silver pillar candle sticks and simple china to a rustic table…it’s instant magic!
A beautiful outdoor setting. What makes this so very special are the little vintage teacups filled with fresh flowers…what a wonderful touch of whimsy. You can dress up white china in an instant. elizabeth anne designs are just beautiful!
Style me Pretty has certainly done just that to this tablescape. Pink never looked so beautiful.
Fun and Fanciful! Ruffled breaks out the vibrant pinks and makes a real statement. One thing to learn from this setting is that not everything has to match. If you have a collection of vases and you put them all together with a common denominator such as the same palette flowers …they become seamless on the table. Check out the table runner here…rolls of wrapping paper weren’t just meant to pretty up a package!
StLouis Gallery presents this stunning idea for a place setting. How amazing does this look. Are your ideas going wild right now?
All Things Shabby and Beautiful once again shows us that all things do not have to match…by taking a basic white charger and adding a different vintage plate…cup and saucer to each brings everything together. So that gives us all a BIGGER excuse when we are a flea market or good will to by all of those mismatched pieces of china (like we needed an excuse!)
