This tablescape thing has taken on a life of its own. Now, when we are invited to dinner, friends are into doing tables. I’m not sure they are trying for a spot on my blog, but the effort does two things: we laugh over the connection and, more importantly, it beautifully reflects the person’s creative self which is something we often keep hidden. And, I think we are all realizing that our tablescapes add unexpected pleasure to the gathering as well as give us ideas that we can incorporate into our own settings.
This friend’s table was elegant in white starting with the centerpiece of white hydrangeas which are plentiful right now, blooming both on bush and tree. In a clear glass vase complementing the glassware, the stems were held in place with white marble chips.
The table was set with lovely Italian linen,
simple white plates, the perfect backdrop for grilled swordfish with mango salsa,
and lovely glassware, including the dainty salt and pepper set at each place. I especially liked that touch.
And, I couldn’t overlook the needlepoint on the backs and seats of the chairs. Lovely.
The hostess, too, was decked out in white. Wonder if that was intentional or a happy accident. Maybe she will tell us.
i love your comments, so jump right in and share your thoughts.
