Elegant White and Gold Tablescape

After all the red hubbub of Valentine’s Day, my soul was crying out for some calmness and rest for my eyes.


The elegant white and gold tablescape was born.


The classic stoneware pieces are upgraded by lavish use of crystal and metallic accents — Grandma’s silver does its job again!

IMG_7234BThe key to an all white tablescape is texture and layering. Embossed detail creates interest on the dishes, golden embroidery on the placemats is mimicked on the wired ribbon accent, and the tablecloth, napkins, French scarf, and the bread warmer add lacy textures.

One Last Look Before We Go On To Spring

I loved my red tablescape and I loved all of the beautiful tablescapes that I visited over the last month.

But sometimes one has to move on.

So say goodbye to the red tablecloth and the red glittery plates for a while. It’s time for some Spring on my table.
