The Art of the Tablescape

Earlier this week I finally received my invitation to join Pinterest and went a little crazy on Monday "re-pinning" things to my boards. If you already have an account you know how addicting this process can be. If you aren't using Pinterest, why the heck not? Long story short I cam across the image below and fell in love. I became intrigued and soon it blossomed into a post. 

If I were a table setting I would be this one. How perfectly does that chevron runner look with the gold & glass table, aqua chargers and gilded glassware? 

I love the simplicity of this setting. Adoring the paper flowers as the centerpiece.

There's something very "May Day" and ethereal about the first image. I'm wondering what this setting was for: bridal shower, tea party, wedding? And then there's those killer dahlias paired with the burlap tablecloth in the second image. I can't wait for July when I can steal some dahlias from my mother's garden. 

The little nosegays of wildflowers used as nameplates are ingenious. I also like the idea of using crystal clear oil lamps in the centerpiece to provide height but not preventing guests from seeing one another. 

 I especially love those gorgeous ikat table runners paired with hot pink chairs and blue opal glassware! Must have. 

Fun, vintage tea party - the glass chargers are fab. I'm also loving the fresh poppies paired with the black and white houndstooth. 

Gilded and Festive - though I think the confetti is a bit much. I'm not really a fan of confetti due to the mess factor; I really hated those birthday invitations stuffed with the stuff creating an unexpected mess!

Glorious and elegant. 

The Mad Hatter's Tea Party minus the broken china and insanity.

You all know by now that I have an affinity for flowers and the outdoor room which is quite genetic. Loving the birdcages suspended over the table of the first image. Likewise, the beads and chandelier over the picnic table is romantically rustic. 

 French Blues.

Adoring the sea glass green plates and candles mixed with the pale bouquet.
