Hydrangeas and Chinoiserie?
I say that is a great combination for summer decorating.
This past weekend, I was on the hunt for chairs
to replace the ones I am giving to my son.
Although, I was not successful in my quest,
there was one item that I found that had to come home with me.
Yes, I broke my rule again;
however, how could you refuse a voice coming from the corner of the furniture showroom,
saying, “take me home, you won’t regret it!” And I did and I don’t!
I have never seen a pattern on a crock such as this chinoiserie pattern.
I can see many uses for this crock.
To carry out this blue and white chinoiserie theme,
I grabbed a couple of pieces ( a sugar bowl and gravy boat)
of the china I recently acquired from my friend Martha.
I cut hydrangeas early in the morning.
I then soak them in a sink filled with water
to release any bugs that are lurking in the blooms.
Incorporating various textures to create a balanced vignette.
After I completed this little vignette for the coffee table,
I realized that this is my first Summer coffee table vignette for the year
and so happy that my hydrangeas bloomed and were able to be a part of it!
Do you start thinking about summer decorating after Memorial Day?
Or do you wait until the first day of Summer (June 20th)?
Have a great day!!
