Finally, I’m sharing this table with you. My goal with this tablescape was to create a Moroccan vibe and it all started with the fabric overlay. It’s a piece I picked up while thrifting a couple of years ago. I also have a folder filled with images of tableware and other decorations that served as inspiration.
These days I’m doing my best to work with what I have rather than making a run to Pier 1 or even the thrift store to purchase additional items. Don’t hold me to that last statement though because sometimes I’m easily tempted if the price is right. Also, I have my eye on a couple of lanterns that would be awesome with this theme. Nothing like a do-over!
For weeks, I looked at my worktable filled with shades of orange, pink, gold and aqua items. After a while, it became so overwhelming that I became discouraged, turned a blind eye, and almost gave up. With Charisse’s wedding approaching and family coming in, I needed the table and did my best to channel a bit of a Marrakech mojo. In addition, speaking of Marrakech, it ranks high on the top of my places to visit. I’d be like a kid in a candy shop in the souks.
Here are the table details.
Multicolored cotton fabric overlay, deep pink polyester napkins.
Aqua chargers, white dinner and salad plates, rose shaped and colored dessert plates.
Silver flatware with rose motif on the handles.
Orchid goblets, gold etched tumblers.
Center of table: gold curly stems and orchid like faux florals tucked in gold mercury glass vases w/stone embellishments. Dark orange hobnail votive holder.
End of table: rose gold mercury taper holders with white taper candle, orange mercury glass votive holders holding hydrangeas.
I’m sharing my table at the following parties this week.
