Hello everyone! It’s Friday and guess what that means. We have our winner of the Canvas Factory Givaway.
And our winner is Jillian Too!
Congrats! Shoot us an email and we will give you the code for the free canvas!
Also, this blog is reposted and I loved how this table turned out. So enjoy!
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.
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…
