White and Blue Summer Tablescape

White and Blue Summer Tablescape

Blue and white is a classic color combination that has been popular for centuries. It is often associated with the sea, sky, and purity, and it can create a sense of elegance and sophistication. Blue and white table decor can be used to create a variety of different looks, from formal to casual.

Start with a blue and white tablecloth. This will provide a classic backdrop for the rest of your tablescape.

Add blue patterned napkins. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns. When done correctly, mixing patterns can create a stylish look. However, it’s important to choose patterns that complement each other.

We used rattan round placemats and bamboo napkins rings; using various textures will help create visual interest and make your tablescape more dynamic. The plates are melamine. White melamine plates are a versatile and durable option for summer tablescapes. They are easy to clean and care for, making them perfect for outdoor dining. They are also lightweight and stackable, making them easy to transport and store. Acrylic glasses are a versatile and durable option for drinkware. They are made from a clear, lightweight, shatter-resistant plastic, perfect for outdoor events. We are absolutely in love with the design of this one .

Hydrangeas are a quintessential summer flower, and you can’t go wrong adding them as your centerpiece. They are beautiful and versatile flowers that can be used in various ways. Hydrangeas in baskets are a beautiful and elegant way to add a touch of nature to your table. Baskets can create a unique and eye-catching centerpiece.

A white and blue tablescape can be quite simple, but it’s important to keep the overall look simple. Too many elements can be overwhelming and detract from the beauty of the colors. No matter what your style, there is a white and blue summer tablescape that is perfect for you. With a little creativity, you can create a tablescape that is both beautiful and inviting.

Pastel Pink and Yellow Easter Tablescape

Pastel Pink and Yellow Easter Tablescape

Easter is a time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, so it’s important to gather with our family and friends. We love creating a special tablescape for this holiday! Follow along to learn how we put together this one.

This tablescape is simple and easy to replicate. You don’t need something over the top to create a festive decor. Here, we accessorized the table with bunnies and medium-sized decorative easter eggs. They can be found almost at any store during this time of the year. Check the bottom of this post to shop. Since we used so many easter accessories, we kept the flowers simple. Remember, less is more!!

For the flowers, we used a spring classic, Hyacinth!! They are an early spring blooming bulb and are widely available in stores during this time of the year. They are incredibly fragrant with a sweet scent.

The pastel gingham pink linen napkins complemented the hyacinths and the flower vase’s pink shades. We love this pattern for Easter. We made the place cards a little more special with a spring feel by adding yellow spray roses. They are miniature standard roses easily found at stores. Using a hole puncher, punch a hole in the top of the place card.

Who doesn’t love chocolate!? We placed a few Lindt Chocolates on each place setting. After all, Easter is not complete without chocolate.


Galentine’s Day Party

Galentine’s Day Party

You and your friends deserve a few hours of fun, right?? This February 13th, make your closest friends feel special by throwing a Galentine’s Day party!!! This informal soiree should be casual and stress-free. The trick is to prepare everything beforehand and keep it low-key. The point is to have fun and relax!!!!

1- Decor and set-up:

Don’t stress over every detail! There is no need to re-create a florist flower arrangement; just get a few flower stems at the grocery store and put them in a vase. This will be enough décor for your get-together.

Parties always end in the kitchen, right? So, let’s start there too!! Set-up the food and drinks on your kitchen island. Don’t have one? A kitchen table can fill in as an alternative, or you can bring the party to your living room and set the food up on the coffee table.

2- Food:

Don’t make things complicated! This event is more about socializing than trying to show all your cooking skills (we are sure you have lots….but save it for another gathering). Take advantage of the great selection of cheese, meat, nuts, and dips at grocery stores and create a charcuterie board. Better to focus on finger food that doesn’t require utensils.

If you still feel like creating something that looks fancier but requires just a few steps, you can try our Goat Cheese Balls, and why not a Mediterranean Quinoa Salad. They take a minute (ok…maybe a few minutes) to make, and your friends will love it.

For the sweet eaters, you can buy a pre-made dessert or make some of our favorite desserts:

They are all very easy to prepare and require zero cooking skills!!!!

3- Drink

Water, white wine, red wine, and champagne should be enough! Leave it on a big bucket full of ice so the guests will feel comfortable helping themselves. But if you want to go a little bit over, have vodka, rum tequila, and a couple of fruits and let the girls create their own drinks.

4- Vibe

This event should be a release of all the stress from your busy lives. Have some music playing in the background for an ambiance. In the end, this get-together is meant not only for your guests to relax and have fun, but you also deserve it.

Elegant table décor for the Holiday Season

Elegant table décor for the Holiday Season

Creating a stylish table setting for family and friends is probably one of our favorite things to do during the holiday season. Whether you are hosting a holiday dinner or hosting just you and your immediate family, don’t overlook your dinner table. A beautiful table setting will set the ambiance of the evening.

The elegant mix of orange, green, and deep purple was our color choice. It’s a beautiful color palette that adds sophistication to the décor.  We selected cream and green dinnerware for an extra charm to the table. If you don’t have dinnerware with green accents, don’t worry! This table would have looked as beautiful if we had used white plain plates. 

To enhance the appearance of your Holiday table, don’t forget the candles! While white or ivory taper candles are always a classic choice, we also love to add colorful candles on the table for an easy way to add a pop of color. We chose the warm amber taper candles for this setting to bring a glow and coziness to the table. 

One tip is to consider using unscented or lightly scented candles when adding them to your table. The objective here is to create ambiance and not fragrance. You don’t want the candles to overpower the aroma from the meal.   

The centerpiece is filled with roses, waxflowers, safari sunset, hypericum, alstroemeria, poms, and mini calla-lilies. If you don’t master a flower arrangement, you can simply combine alstroemerias and roses or even select just one flower. All you have to do is cut all the stems at the same height and add to a glass container. A brass bowl of clementines would also be a great option in this setting. Do what works for you and with what you have at home!

The clementines and the calla lilies brought a pop of color to each set!

The most important tip to create your table décor is to remember that the table set doesn’t have to be over the top to make a statement. Set the table with care, and your family and friends will certainly feel the love! Happy Holidays!

Warm and Cozy Thanksgiving table

Warm and Cozy Thanksgiving table

This Thanksgiving set a simple, yet a warm and cozy table that celebrates great food and amazing company!

From simple styling to more elaborate looks, there’s always a way to make your table feel festive. No matter the style you choose, setting the table for Thanksgiving should be pleasant and not be difficult to achieve.

This table layer rustic elements for a look that’s cozy and inviting. Glints of copper paired with the wicker placemats created the scene. Here are some elements we added to create this rustic and elegant style:

  • Wicker chargers: rich in texture, the wicker charger adds a welcoming and rustic feel.
  • Traditional turkey motifs dinnerware: To add some festive feelings to the table, we added a traditional turkey motif dinnerware. These gorgeous plates certainly set a warm atmosphere for a traditional dinner.

  • Lanterns: lanterns centerpiece can add charm and elegance to any space. Choose small lanterns that are not too big to make it difficult for guests to talk across the table. If you want to add larger lanterns, make sure to place them on the side of the table, like we did here. In decorating, the rule of 3 is the golden rule, so to create a balance, we paired three lanterns on each side
  • Pumpkins: Complete the look with autumnal elements. The pumpkins with succulents on the side bring natural beauty to the table without crowding the setting.

  • Napkins and Place card: The napkins serve double-duty as elegant placeholders. We ditched the napkin rings for a more personal and creative way to dress up the napkin. We inserted greenery with a tied place card into a pocket folded napkin.

  • The food:  Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that revolves around food, so we reserved the center of the table for the “Hero of the night!”.  A large wood board decorated with roasted garlic, oranges, persimmons, dried apricot holds Turkey. You can find here for more details on how to decorate your turkey platter. The sides were served on the lovely mini copper pans.

If you like this setting, you can use this table décor as a jumping off point for you to create a table that’s uniquely YOURS. Happy Holidays!

Sunflower Tablescape

Sunflower Tablescape

As we approach fall, do you get that itch for the new season but also want to hang on to summer just a little longer? Then, this transitional tablescape is perfect for you!

Let’s start with the flowers, our favorite element when setting the table. Annual sunflowers bloom from summer into autumn, and they are easily accessible. You can find them at floral shops and most grocery stores. We even saw a bunch of them at Target a few weeks ago. Sunflowers can brighten up any table decor and lift anyone’s spirits. They stand out in any setting with their long and strong stems and their large and bright leaves. Less is more when it comes to this type of bloom, by just adding a few of them to your table will add such an impact. They sure will cheer your decor and your guests.

They have such a strong presence, that we like to keep them solo and never mix them with other flowers. Their stems are so unique, long, and strong that they deserve to be visible. We don’t like to cut them too short, but also be aware of their height as you don’t want to block your guests’ line of sight and obstruct conversation. We used these Pottery Barn bud vases, which also help prevent obstruction. If you are using taller arrangements, narrow and clear vessels are best.

Now, let’s talk about the chargers; the Juliska rustic rope natural chargers add warmth and an autumn vibe to the decor. This hue of brown is perfect for the fall.

Go neutral with the plates. Since the sunflowers, chargers, and napkins have three different colors, it’s best to keep them simple. We love Juliska Berry & Thread dinner and salad plates; they go so well with nearly everything. A set of neutral plates like white and ivory solid pieces is timeless and versatile. You can dress them up or down with different napkins, placemats, and chargers. Keep it in mind when purchasing a set of dinnerware.

What we love the most about these Serena and Lily napkins is their neutral color. They are so versatile and can go with nearly any table decor. They are simple but yet add so much charm to the tablescape.

Finally, candles! These small CB2 tea light candle holder are subtle and informal but still adds that touch of warmth and intimacy to the ambiance.


Peach Summer Tablescape

Peach Summer Tablescape

There is nothing like a meal alfresco on a nice day with family or close friends. We put together this tablescape for a special lunch with our mom and sister. Yes, we have a younger sister who lives in NYC!!! Due to COVID, we hadn’t been together for 1.5 years, and oh boy, we missed spending time together. This table decor is so simple and casual but so inviting at the same time.

Let’s start with the color scheme, we picked the traditional blue and white palette. You can never go wrong with this color combination. Next are the placemats, wicker and rattan ones are great options for outdoor entertaining. The light natural color of these charger plates was the perfect backdrop to the blue and white plates. These placemats are from Pottery Barn, we have them in two different colors. They are so versatile and go well with so many different styles of plates.

We used melamine plates and acrylic glasses; they are great for the summer when eating outside. These Q Squared Dinner Plates are so beautiful and have a Mediterrane fell to them. How stunning is this design!?
The water goblets are also from Q Squared; we absolutely love their design, and they are also so durable! Unfortunately, they don’t carry this exact one anymore. The wine glasses are from William Sonoma. There are so many acrylic glasses available, and they came in a variety of styles, sizes, and colors. There are endless options for every taste.

Bamboo flatware is one of our favorites!!! We use them all the time in the spring and summer. They will never go out of style, making them an excellent investment. They add a fresh and casual look to any table decor. This bamboo flatware is from Pottery Barn and is very wallet-friendly compared to other brands.

Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and prints, as long as they complement each other. The plates and napkins’ different patterns and shades of blue look so lovely together.

Finally, the centerpiece!! Ditch the flowers for fruits! If flower arrangement is not your forte, or you want something different, fruits are a great alternative. How charming is this bowl of peaches!? They added a pop of color, and they are in season now, bringing that summer feel to the table decor.


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!

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!
