As I had mentioned in this post, when I shopped at Horton's of Tipton's autumn market, two very talented ladies gave us a tablescape demonstration. They are sisters who work well together. One is an interior designer and the other makes awesome things for J'Ann & Co. in Noblesville, Indiana.
Here was the first tablescape which was for a sunflower country-themed fall lunch. They even had menus that went along with the events.
|Sunflower seed packets would be given as gifts to the guests.|
Little pots were cleverly placed under a cloche.
Horton's of Tipton is much, much more than a hardware store!
The second tablescape was for a book club lunch. Large flat books were used as placemats.
They discussed how important it is to make varying heights with your decor to add interest to the table.
A gift of a bookmark graced each setting.
They adhered book pages to the sides of the brown paper tablecloth.
Scrabble letters were placed in the bowls to be used as place cards. They suggested scrambling the letters to make it more fun for the guests to find their place.
The last one was for a bridal shower. They suggested turning the tablecloth catawampus to add an interesting perspective to the lines of the table.
Silver could be polished, or not. Looks good either way. Battery operated candles are safe and becoming more interesting all the time.
Pumpkins of fabric and lace added to a fall themed bridal shower.
They said each table needs a WOW factor. The white wooden frames created such a factor here.
Which is your favorite? I can't decide - they all inspired me in some special way.
