It seems like forever since I’ve changed the table in the dining room. My intention was to get it done this past weekend but a quick trip to Chicago changed that plan. Gabrielle had her first official modeling gig this weekend and I didn’t want to miss it. Yes I am a proud Nanni and it was such a great experience for her.
The dishes that I used for this setting have only been used once here and that was too long ago. They’ve been sitting for so long that I thought they had lavender designs. Silly me!! I tried the dishes, charger and placemat with my silver and lavender cloths and obviously the lavender won out. The tablecloth and napkins were found at Amazon.com. I really love this color combo, for me it’s neither cool or warm, just right. Don’t be surprised if it shows up in my family room J
The silver-gray flatware is one of my faves and I got it, the napkins and dinnerware from Burlington’s. The red wine goblets were $1.98 (I think) from Pier 1. It’s one of those purchases where I wish I had bought all that were available. I was smart enough to buy all of the water goblets from the thrift store a while back. At .50 each why not? These purple bowls that I used on the Mardi gras table engaged me in a stare down and looks like they won. Thank goodness they were the right color!
When I tell you I have stuff stashed all over the house I mean it. This over sized vase was in the coat closet. I promise to find a better place for it. The flowers inside are a garland. That’s one way to fill it up. The skinny purple vases are from Michaels and the minil votive holders from Hobby Lobby. I have about six of the leaf and vine white votive holders and spray painted a few of them white. As soon as the weather is warm enough I’m going to be a spray painting fanatic! I have a pile of things waiting for some new color. While I’m picking up spray paint from the craft stores I going to invest in more small white pillars. These blinged out ones were the only ones I could find. Hurry for 40% off coupons.
I’m off to find a recipe for cacao nibs, have a gorgeous and peaceful week, take care and be well!!
These are the linky parties I participate in. Drop by and show them a little love!
