I kept the Mikasa "Floral Elegance" bone china as well as the silver chargers and antique sterling flatware, "Louvre" by Wallace. The vintage damask napkins were my great grandmother's.
I exchanged the Noritake "Perspective" for my Cristal D'Arques "Longchamp" by Durand crystal...
You know by now that something must come from the woods here, so I gathered some branches and spray painted them white, then silver, and placed them in a lead crystal decanter. I also found some astilbe I had dried, which when spray painted, added softness to the hard branches. I also painted some large pine cones and placed them on the mirrored runner I borrowed from my mother. Another element of softness is the creamy tulle I draped over the runner.
I almost used all silver, but decided on the Fostoria "Baroque" triple and single glass candleholders with all white candles.
I hope I have shown you how to take the same elements and change up your table with just some minor additions. I always use things I already have or can borrow, and add natural elements from outside or different fabric.
Thanks so much for stopping by this week! I'll be joining Susan at "Between Naps on the Porch" for "Tablescape Thursday" so be sure to go by there. Next week, we will be celebrating "Los Tres Reyes Magos" or Three King's Day with a Middle Eastern-inspired table. You are always welcome!!
