I hope you had a nice Easter weekend. Our daughter in Lexington hosted the family this year. She had some delicious recipes that I hope to share. I am especially thinking of her roast pork loin and pecan pie. Both were just delicious. I should have been thinking ahead and taking pics for the blog. ha ha.
Now...on to what I did a few days ago. As you know we purchased a new cocktail table for the great room a few months ago.
It is a large table, but little did I know that I was purchasing a stage on which I could play with trayscapes, vignettes, etc.
It is so large that I could literally tap dance on top of it. ha ha. 💃💃💃
Here is my most recent stage setting. :-)
I love clear bottles with flowers...so that is how I began.
If I wanted to make them look more authentic I could have added water to the bottle.
The next thing I did was to add a tray. I love trayscapes! You can make a trayscape when you do not have a table top or chest to decorate.
I was not sure what I wanted to add to the tray, so I began walking around the house. I grabbed some chunky candlesticks, and some greenery balls. Voila!
To balance the glass bottle on the left I added a clear glass jar on the right. I added a few natural elements to it in order to blend with the trayscape and green silk flowers.
A quick overhead shot.
I refreshed the leather sofa with some lighter colored pillows.
And here we are...the stage is all set for the week! I am not sure what will be appearing next week...but probably something a little different.
Do you have a table that needs to be re-staged? Clear the top...then walk around your home and pick up accessories. Before you know it you will have re-staged your table top.
Another example of my using glass bottles.
These came from Oriental Trading.
Until the next time...
