Using the Same Linens to Style 3 Different Tables – Table 2
Using the Same Linens to Style 3 Different Tables proved to be more of a challenge than I thought. Do I go with just minor changes from Table 1, or do a complete 360. I decided on minor changes. I also understand with the exception of a few pieces the difference may only make sense to me.
Using the Same Linens to Style 3 Different Tables – Table Two
The white base cloth and floral overlay are still in place as are the soft pink napkins. In previous posts, I’ve mentioned using mounting putty to keep your tablecloth from sliding. I apply a small amount to the ends of the table and my tablecloths stay put. It’s inexpensive and doesn’t leave any marks.
With the linens in place, I again turned t.he centerpiece. The mercury glass vase filled with pink faux flowers is still there. Years ago, I baked and decorated lots of, wedding cakes. After deciding not to take orders for wedding cakes anymore, I donated most of my wedding-related cake items to the thrift store but kept all of the pans. The lesser used ones were packed away. Thankfully, locating my heart shaped pans was easy. In front of the flower-filled vase, I added a 6-inch heart pan. My little pan didn’t stand up well so I added a small piece of mounting putty to keep it in place.
On each side of the vase, there are mercury glass votive holders. The most striking difference between table one and two is the addition of light stands on each side of the vase.
The smaller one is a tall pillar holder that I topped with a shade. Getting the shade to stay straight wasn’t easy. Once again mounting putty to the rescue. I applied a small amount to the shade bulb clip adapter and that helped a little.
The taller stand is a tealight holder. My small shades came from the thrift store.
I opted to use the same place settings. Deep pink chargers followed by white square dinner plates, round dinner plates, topped with white salad plates. On top of the salad plates are the same soft pink napkins.
This time they’re held together with a silver beaded napkin rings. My rose appetizer plates are used as a base/contrast for the coupe cocktail glasses. I noticed on the first table that the glassware seemed to get lost in the fabric overlay. The rose plates made the glasses more visible. The original etched tumblers and goblets remain.
Table 3 is my favorite and I hope you come back to see it.
