Hi! Welcome to my first attempt at Tablescaping. I've been following the weekly Tablescape posts for some time and just kept thinking "I'd really like to try that." In an effort to do so I have to say.... "WOW! I've learned alot."
1. The camera enhances any and all flaws.
2. I need new silverware
3. Tablescapes look thinner on camera
4. Colors look brighter annnnd drum roll please.......
5. It doesn't matter how clean I think my house is. Something is always out of place!!!
Well, I tucked my pride away and I am posting it anyway. Shucks, I'll probably be coming back everyday to add and subtract from it. LOLOLOLOL Maybe clear till Easter. (So suggestions are welcome) As a matter of fact, this could possibly be a before and after Tablescape. Could I be making Tablescape history? To be honest I kind of got a little frenzied when I decided to do this. I ran out to a bunch of stores searching for just the right stuff. "Wait, I thought. For me this is about showcaseing the things I already have and love. Struting my stuff so to speak. So.... I felt pretty clever using the plant stand from the patio and building a nest with a grapevine wreath I found in the "someday" box. Layering an old green tablecloth with a lace one and using my favorite floral dinnerplates (Selma) from Syracuse China. (hellooo Genius) But then, layering again with the with the teal colored fiestaware salad bowls. (well, thats just off the charts) Okay, I clearly see there is some room for improvement.... Its a little funky..... and probably not for everyone. But I gotta love it "cuz thats my style."! Well, I appreciate your being good sports and letting me practice on ya'll.
