Inspiration can come from the simplest things.
Hubby brought me yellow roses for Valentines.
I know that most people go with red, pink, and even white. But he knows that I like yellow roses. So, yellow it is for me.
I trimmed the ends and refreshed the water...and put them in an antique ironstone pitcher.
Well, that was the beginning of a new tablescape.
I began with a white table cloth, per usual.
I placed the pitcher of yellow roses in the middle...and thought for a few minutes.
I pulled some of my white pitchers out of the china cabinet and things rolled from there.
A garland of boxwood gave me some green down the middle of the table. Then I grabbed some greenery balls and put them onto the tops of the pitchers to make whimsical topiaries.
Ok. I am making a garden whimsy table. I had no clue when I started. ha!
This is my newest little whatnot. It is a candleholder...but it has a topiary feel to it.
I want another one...but this was a TJ Maxx find. Not sure if I will ever see another one. But if I do...It will go into my cart.
Blue and green appears to be a popular color combination this spring based on what I am seeing on design websites and social media. I am right on it. ha!
Look around your house to see what you already have in order create vignettes and such that are trendy. You may already own what you need for a fresh update.
My greenery accents give me a fun garden look in the dining room.
I went with some of my blue and white Spode and decorative pieces. Blue always looks so fresh with white.
Can you see the scalloped edges on my white porcelain plates. I think the wavy edges add to the table's whimsy.
Here is a closer look at the wavy plate. Fun.
A nod to a garden topiary by putting the greenery ball on the top of my pitcher. I was not sure if it was a good idea or not. But, I was feeling playful and thought, Oh why not!
This tablescape was brought to you by 13 yellow roses. Many thanks to hubby for my Valentine roses. I love them.
