Blush Pink and Gold Tablescape
Hello to you all. Can you believe that Valentine's is just a few days away? I just don't know where the time goes lately. Today, I am excited to share my Blush Pink and Gold Tablescape.
This year, I decided to host an early Galentine’s lunch for a few of my favorite girlfriends. I just think it's always nice to appreciate the close friendships that we have. What girlfriend wouldn't enjoy a table set in beautiful soft shades of pink and creamy white. And I I always “hop” at the chance to style a pretty table.
For this table, my intention was to create an elegant and inviting table with a vintage vibe which incorporated a few modern pieces to keep it fresh and current.
I kept the colors of my table setting soft and feminine. After all, it is a table that will be enjoyed by women and I do love to make my guests feel extra special when they come to our home.
A simple cream tablecloth dresses the table while a place mat from Ikea in a soft pink shade begins my place setting. I’m such a fan of Ikea!!! For the dinner plate, I used a vintage pattern called Billingsley Rose by Spode which is one of my favorite patterns of all time. I then added a simple pink salad plate from Pottery Barn which I topped with a butter dish in the same Spode pattern. For shimmer and a bit of glam, I used gold flatware by Lenox. For drinkware, a mix of glasses from Anthropologie with plenty of gold touches were added.
Element of Surprise:
For a special treat, I placed a mini Chandon Rose bottle at each place setting. I just had to add these to my table!! The bottles were so adorable and they match my theme perfectly.
I am a firm believer that flowers are key when styling a table. They play an important role in the overall feel of a table. So when styling your table, remember to keep into account all the ways a well-designed floral arrangement can contribute to the finished look of your dining table. Your flowers will be the center of attention and should be visually attractive. It should also tie-together the theme of your table. Roses and greenery placed in modern gold vases give this centerpiece a modern vibe while a couple of vintage tea cups add a bit of surprise and whimsy. And you know I had to add my signature pearls!!!
I hope I have inspired you to create your own pretty table this Valentine's Day.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
