I simply adore this arrangement featured on One Charming Party. As they suggest, it would be perfect for Mother’s Day. I could also see it as part of a Spring tablescape, a ladies’ tea, a bridal shower…. The bright orange color and the pops of citrus make it a happy addition to any table!

There are lots of ways to dress up your dinner table to impress holiday guests. Special china, unique glassware, pretty napkins… Adding a centerpiece, however, always helps to complete the tablescape. Whether it be flowers, fruit, or even pinecones, a holiday centerpiece does not need to be complicated to be impactful. Check out these simple ideas from Martha Stewart for beautiful, do-it-yourself centerpieces.
Fresh cut flowers are a traditional centerpiece for any dinner table. What makes this beautiful centerpiece unique are the cranberries in the vase. The pop of red color is gorgeous against the white flowers and stay in the color scheme of the holidays.
This is another beautiful centerpiece for your holiday table. This time the flowers are red and the candles are white but you can swap out different colors to match. Depending on the length of your table, line up three to four of these centerpieces to brighten up the whole table!
I am always looking for inspiration for beautiful tablescapes. This one, featured in Southern Living and designed by Elizabeth Demos, is absolutely beautiful. I love the punch that the orange napkins provide; the bare, exposed rustic table contrasted with elegant upholstered chairs; and the tiered, multi-level centerpiece. What inspiration for a beautiful Fall tablescape!
Placecards are not only a fun way to strategically seat people around your dining table, but they are also a great opportunity to add a pop of decor to your table. A terra cotta pot with moss and a personalized dusty miller or lamb’s ear would make for a beautiful summertime placecard. I also love how this one is set on a pretty saucer which pulls it all together.
The new Williams-Sonoma catalog came in the mail today. I fell in love with this Easter table setting — especially the egg topiary trees. I think they would be fairly easy to make, but they are also available on their website with either ivory or robin’s egg blue eggs.
Everywhere I look I see seersucker — a fabric that epitomizes summertime. Aprons, tablecloths, napkins… it’s everywhere and I love it!
Growing up, I lived in a small coastal town in Massachusetts where boating and beaching were just part of life. It’s around this time every year when I get homesick and have a hankering for the ocean, the sand, and the salty sea air. Too bad we live three hours away from the nearest beach! Not to worry, there are all kinds of ways to bring the ocean to you — like doing some nautical-themed entertaining. Here are some images to inspire.
The 56th Annual Corcoran Ball was the place to be this past weekend. The event is one of the most prestigious fundraisers in DC and hours upon hours are spent making sure it is one of, if not the most, beautiful galas in town. The Corcoran Ball raises money for the Corcoran Gallery of Art and its many important education and outreach programs. The often one thousand or more guests in attendance all come out to support the Gallery and to have a fabulous time.
One of the highlights of the evening is the way that the galleries are decorated and the design of the tablescapes that the guests sit at. The event is catered and designed annually by Occasions Caterers, one of DC’s premiere catering companies, in conjunction with the Gala Committee. I had the opportunity to walk through the Gala to see the beautiful tablescapes and unique touches Occasions created for the guests of the Ball.
Congratulations to the Corcoran and to Occasions for a gorgeous event!
I fell in love with this photo on Biz Bash showing a library-themed benefit dinner that Bulgari hosted. Images of bookshelves drape the walls. The tables are covered in faux crocodile and are adorned with lamps and books serving as centerpieces. Makes me wish I had my own private library!
A client of mine has been hunting for the perfect lace tablecloths for her upcoming wedding. Her vision for using lace is on the cusp of a rising trend of incorporating lace elements into entertaining and wedding designs. Here are some beautiful examples.
