Obsessing Over Tablescapes

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Okay.  I am going to admit it.  I am just obsessed with tablescapes lately!

Tablescapes, vignettes, setting a table, decorating a table, centerpieces.  I just can’t seem to get enough!!

Did you know that the word ‘tablescape’ is not even a word in the dictionary? Even Microsoft’s Word says that the word does not exist.  I think that they need to get with the program!

So this past weekend, I thought why don’t you try to make a pretty table Kelly??  I decided to start with a smaller table in my kitchen nook.  This is what the table has looked like for while now:

I took out a few of my little accessories to see if I could use any of that first.  What was I thinking dragging all this stuff out!

Last week for my birthday, I treated myself to a little shopping spree at Pier 1.  I picked up a set of small plates on sale for 1/2 price for $3.50, four placemats @ $4.95 each, napkins @ $2.30 and four napkin rings for $3.95 each. Then I stopped at the Christmas Tree Shop and spent about $12 on a bunch of small accessories! Take a look at all my findings:

I had white plates already,

Then I just played with putting accessories in the middle of table until I liked the look.

I did not want to put silverware out but if you are looking for a guide on how to set a proper table, Solutions , an online and catalog store that sells ‘products that make life easier,’ offers a detailed article here.

I thought it was fun to do!  And I get to smile every time I walk by.  Even my husband, who does not care much about decorating, keeps saying how nice it looks. Yay!

I can tell this might be a new hobby for me!

Just wanted to show you my favorite Pier 1 purchase the other day:

Don’t you just love it?  I saw him from across the store- knew I had to have him right now!  I love finding those special items that make me happy.

Comments? Do you like to decorate your tables? I would love you to send pictures of your tablescapes to share!
