Parisian Tablescape

Parisian Tablescape

I have never been one to have a fancy table for a few reasons.  1: I live with other people. 2: I never sit at the table to enjoy the tablescape.  But, I have decided that I would actually put a tablescape together.

So TADA!

I used a grey scarf as my table runner to keep the table neutral and use other colors to pop.  I added a lot of Paris style items to the middle as a centerpiece.  You will be able to see the centerpiece shortly.

Now…I actually used my roommate Lydia’s dishes because I have red and yellow dishes.  So I had the large plate, the salad plate, and the bowl because you never know what you will need for a meal.  I added the silverware and a glass to finish off the setting.  But, to add a pop, I added a small glass bowl with a pink cupcake that my roommate Danielle had made.  Yum!

For the centerpiece, I used quite a few different items.  The best piece is the old film camera.  I don’t have any film for it, but it still works!  I am able to zoom, click, and “turn the film” which is fun.  I added a pink Eiffel Tower that holds my photos and a mason jar that my mom covered with scrapbooking paper and stickers for my bedroom.

On this side of the centerpiece, I have a mannequin jewelry holder that I bought from Ross and another small mason jar that my mom redid.  You can now see the camera from a different point of view.

And to finish off the centerpiece, I have this wonderful bottle of Van Ruiten Chardonnay that hasn’t been opened yet.  It is a great addition to the centerpiece and hopefully when I open it, it will be delicious.

So that is my tablescape.  I hope I can do more soon, if my roommates allow it…
