Blue, White & Green Tablescape

Blue, White & Green Tablescape

Who doesn’t love the classic blue and white color combination!? Try adding a vibrant green in the mix, and you got yourself a bold color scheme. When we designed this tablescape, we wanted a twist on the traditional blue and white, and by adding small green accents, we were able to achieve a beautiful and striking look.

The navy blue linen tablecloth worked beautifully here; how gorgeous are the white hydrangeas popping against the blue background? This white hydrangeas arrangement is so easy to put together, a great one for anyone, even those with zero floral skills. Watch the tutorial video at the end of the post.

Green apples as decorations pieces!? Yes!! Fruits look beautiful as decor items on a table, don’t be afraid to add them next time you set the table. They add so much texture and color. And who knows, you might have guests nibble on them – they act as food and decor! Win, win!

We love ginger jars and their versatility! They look beautiful in different settings and an exquisite addition to any tablescape. So get those jars out of the cabinets and place them on the table! The blue-rimmed dinner plates added another blue and white element to the table; however, if you don’t have them at home, plain white ones work beautifully as well.

The evergreen linen napkins, along with the green apples, added the perfect amount of green pop to the tablescape. Just what we wanted to give a little twist on the classic blue and white color combination.

This tablescape is a great inspiration for lunch or a casual dinner; we hope you enjoy it! Below are some links to items that we used here and other ones for pieces that will work well in this tablescape.

Pizza and Salad!

Hosting at home has never been so popular; it’s a safer and more controlled manner to gather with your family and intimate friends (the ones in your bubble). However, most people think that hosting at home can be exhausting and time-consuming. It doesn’t have to! Pizza, Salad, Dessert and let’s not forget the wine, everything served on the kitchen island. Easy Peasy and looks adorable. People just want to get together in person; that’s all it matters now. Keep it simple but cozy; all your guests will love whatever you plan.

The kitchen is the heart of most houses and most likely the best place to host a casual gathering. Lay everything on the kitchen island, and guests can help themselves. Very simple! If you want, add some flowers to enhance your kitchen’s decor. We always think that flowers can instantly transform any room or tablescape, but you can always live it out if a floral arrangement is not your thing.

Valentine’s Day Brunch!

Valentine’s Day Brunch!

LOVE IS IN THE AIR!!! Valentine’s Day falls on Sunday this year, the perfect day to celebrate with an extra special Sunday Brunch. Whether with your immediate family, or some very close friends, this year, take the time to set up something a little special. This past year was a rough one for us all; we definitely need some love and to show some love, so cheer up your home with a Valentine-themed Brunch.

Brunch is probably one of the easiest meals to plan as you can serve several store-bought items. Add a variety of pastries, pound cake, bread, yogurt and fruits to your shopping list. The only dish you may want to prepare is the main one, like scrambled eggs, omelettes, french toast, croque monsieur or madame, or whatever you enjoy. Make the main dish easy or a little more elaborate, depending on your cooking skills. No brunch is complete without some champagne to toast, so add a little bubbly to your list. Mimosas or Bellinis are perfect for the occasion too.

You don’t need valentine designed dishes; you can simply add pink or red (or both) flowers to capture the season’s style. A ton sur ton pink roses arrangement like the one above is so easy to design. Pick three different shades of roses, remove all the leaves and cut all the stems around the same height. The pinkish vase definitely helped to elevate the theme, but it can look so beautiful in a clear vase as well.

A great way to serve yogurt is by placing them in a bowl full of ice to keep them nice and cold. This one is a decorative crystal bowl that I have on my coffee table, but didn’t it look so beautiful here!? On the side, add some optional toppings for the yogurt, I served berries, but the sky is the limit. You can serve nuts, chocolate chips, shredded coconut, granola, and so much more.

I bought this pink 3 tier stand for my daughter’s one-year tea party themed birthday. They are so cute, and I have used them a few times already. They are perfect for V-Day! However, any 3 tier stand works! This type of serving dish displays pastries beautifully, I tend to use a lot when serving brunch.

I am sending extra love on this year’s Valentine’s Day! I hope you have a day filled with pink, red, hearts, flowers, chocolates and all things valentine!

Dried Hydrangeas and White Pumpkins!

Dried Hydrangeas and White Pumpkins!

Pumpkins are a staple of fall and the perfect addition to the season’s table decor. Paired with one of our favorite flowers: hydrangeas and autumn-themed plates, it created a seasonal flair.

In this tablescape, we went with the small white pumpkins for a more elegant and clean look. We added dried green hydrangeas that we kept from the summer!

The two tall vases on each end of the table gave an exquisite look to the table decor. The hydrangea burgundy and dark green shade of colors complemented the fall feel. Check out our you tube channel for a tutorial on this arrangement.

For the dinnerware, first, we selected a natural willow placemat (we also love this one) followed by a whitewash colored charger plate, dinner plate, and an autumn-themed salad plate. These pieces’ colors all followed a fall hue; carefully consider the dinnerware’s design and color scheme to match the table decor’s theme. We kept drinkware simple and sweet! As for the flatware, we went with a bright stain place setting embellished by detailed braiding, so unique.

The classic white tablecloth got an uplift by placing table runners vertically, not your typical table linen selection. Don’t be afraid to experiment with what you have!
