I recently attended a luncheon birthday party given by a dear friend of mine. To our great delight the table was sooooo beautiful and girly! We could all tell that Marilou, our host, put a whole lot of love into her vibrant and oh, so pretty tablescape!
She placed a single rose at each place setting to greet us. It was such a happy surprise!
There is something about getting flowers... and there is a real art to flowers when they are presented with such love and care...
Here is the beautiful rose that greeted me...
Artfully wrapped in a soft scalloped napkin and caught up in a white picket fence napkin ring!
After we all ooooohed and aaaaahed and smelled our rose, they were whisked away and put into a vase of water until we retrieved them as we left.
I often use flowers when setting a table and sometimes artfully pick one or a small bunch to welcome my guest at their places!
Here are a few tablescapes to inspire you to practice the art of flowers at your table!
In this DAFFODIL PROFUSION TABLE over 500 daffodils make a sunny table. I laid one daffodil across white plates and gingham napkins... but when my guest left they each took home a big bouquet!
Who doesn't love peonies? A beautiful, full, fragrant peony is cupped in a footed bowl in this BLUE WILLOW AND PINK PEONY TABLESCAPE
The sweetest little bouquet of lilies of the valley from my garden are all tied up and waiting for my guest at the LILY OF THE VALLEY TABLESCAPE
Wouldn't you love to sit down to a table smelling like lilacs? A bouquet of lilacs and violets in tea cups greet my Mom and me for a LILACS ON THE PORCH~ MOTHER'S DAY
A tulip gracefully draped across a stack of neutral colored plates makes a striking presentation in NEUTRAL AND NATURAL TABLESCAPE
Next time you are having guest for a meal... practice the art of flowers...put one, or a few at each place setting to welcome them!
