Creative tablescaping add tons of personality when you are entertaining friends and family. Grab some junk and get going!!
I started with a vey cool metal tray legs and all. I have no idea what this was originally. Anyone have a guess?
In comes a picket fence as a back drop.
My floral booster is a milky white lid from a milk container.
And heres the focal point...a pitcher from a thrift store with garden fresh Hydrangea. Beau-ti-ful!
I also threw in a well worn funnel with a pot of succulents. Strange bed partners I know, but it works for me!
Once you have your major pieces in start adding organics like moss and rock.
I set my plates on a bed of wire then added my organic materials. A little nest like dont you think?
Flatware in an old sugar shaker. These also make great glasses for your dinner table. A little twist on the typical mason jar.
Dont forget the Espresso cups.
The wine bottle is dressed with a vintage napkin and my latest favorite flower..the Straw Flower. So yummy!
Several potted succulents were placed in the mix. They add great texture and color.
