A tablescape? No, at least not in the traditional sense. This weekend the dining room table and chairs and other flat surfaces in nearby spaces are transformed into display units for the weekend’s Artisans Tour in which my daughters and I are participating.
The table started out like this, but when my very talented friend Leslie came in she said, “No, no, it’s too busy!” and immediately began disassembling, pulling pitchers, gourds, decorative pieces off shelves and out of cabinets. All I could do was stand in awe at what she gathered and dust the places from which they came.
With all the stuff out, we began arranging and voila, the entry and dining room became a work of art, and the furniture took on whole new definition.
And the back side was the right backdrop for lovely cards from LLH Designs.
The bright colors of the felt flashcard sleeves from Tembo Studio popped on the wood surface, and the flashcards and softie cupcakes…well, you need to take a look. They are terrific.
Who would have guessed that making do would result in such a creative and stimulating presentation. Now that I think about it, the same is true for real tablescapes.
i love your comments, so jump right in and share your thoughts.
