This morning I have spent some time updating a new page on my blog with my 2012 tablescapes. I can't believe I didn't start that one sooner. It's very time consuming to go back and do this several months later. Having a year's worth of tablescapes on one page is very enjoyable to me and judging from my stats to a few of you as well. I think it's one of those times well spent looking back. Do you have one of these too?
Because I've run out of time again this morning I've decided to take a look waaayyy back to when I first started tablescaping. It was under my old blog, Sailing Simply. This is one of my most favorite tablescapes I have ever done. I may have to even create a newer version of this one this year if the weather would ever cooperate again. Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy looking back with me today.
Good Morning! Today the sun is shining brightly and the temps are still fairly low yet! I am feeling happy to still have an extra table to do outdoor settings after loosing my umbrella table, so I have decided to do a green and white table scape. I have been very inspired by so many of you that I can't help but join in on all the fun.
I know there is much to be proud about when being original and unique. However, I hope most of you do not mind when someone borrows your ideas and uses them in their own way. I am all about giving credit where it is due, but I am not sure I remember who had the first green and white setting that I saw, but I loved it! I loved it so much it stuck with me! I know this is probably not a new concept to most of you who regularly table scape, but it is to me. I would have never thought of pulling a setting together in this way, using certain colors only.
It began with my white everyday plates with embossed fruit from Gibson.
Then added my white monogrammed linen napkins.
I topped it off with my green and white plastic salad plates from the Better Homes and Gardens collection at Walmart and clear footed fruit bowls.
I added crystal goblets and my silver plated stainless flatware, Louisiana by Oneida.
