Yesterday, I featured a white stoneware pitcher as the centerpiece in my Elegant White and Gold Tablescape.
This was the inspiration for my shabby chic pitcher centerpiece.
I saw this embellished pitcher sitting on the sale rack at Home Goods. Please forgive the poor photography — I took the photo with my cell phone, but I knew the concept had promise. It was lonely there on the shelf, looking as though it belonged in Great Expectations with Miss Havisham…
… and I thought I could do something similar but not quite so sad for my Elegant White and Gold tablescape.
I looked at cotton lace remnants and other options at Jo-Ann’s Fabrics, but finally settled on the gold filigree wired ribbon which complemented the embroidery in my placemats nicely. Then, while standing in the checkout line, I saw the cute glittered rose pins in the $1 bin and I knew I had my look. Not quite as shabby, but much more chic. 🙂
Today I’m linked up with Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home. I loved Cindy’s post about roses — be sure to stop by and see her beautiful photos!
Have a lovely weekend — I have to go run my snowblower now!
