I had a busy week this past week.
So what did I accomplish?
A Simple Hydrangea Tablescape and More Gilding.
My busy week included getting prepared for cooking and baking
for my turn at our Dinner Group this past weekend
and gilding the lily again.
First, here is what I thought needed a little more glam to its appearance.
I think I just may have acquired an addiction to Rub ‘n Buff.
I took the Rub ‘n Buff in the Gold Leaf to enhance the carvings
in this pretty little French Country accent table.
When I completed “gilding the lily” on the table,
I thought that the vignette on the table needed a little glam too.
So, I added the glamorous Hermes soap and the color of royalty in the purple Hyacinths.
Now, when my hubby sees that tube of Rub ‘n Buff in my hand
he runs … out of the house! As I told him he could use some glaming up too.
And now to one of the other things I was doing this past week.
A trip to Trader Joe’s yielded more flowers for the house,
including blue hydrangeas with hints of green
to be used in the centerpiece of the table.
The color of the hydrangeas were perfect as my tablecloth
had various shades of blues and greens.
The hydrangeas were floated in blue and white bowls, made in Japan (like me!)
I added the faux flickering Luminara candles and real votive candles.
The combination of the two was actually very pretty.
I purposely made this centerpiece and the place settings very simple this time.
Leaving room for condiments, and sauces on the table.
The centerpieces being low in scale so as not to interfere
with conversation across the table.
Waterford goblets, and Noritake Dishes were used.
The place setting consisted of the Modern Day Noritake Summer Estate,
and antique blue and white Noritake bowls in a blue and white Chinoiserie pattern.
Wine glasses were already in the hands of my guests
while they enjoyed appetizers.
The day after the Dinner Party, I had planned to catch up on some chores around the house,
and do a post for Monday.
But hubby and I decided that after a long busy week that he and I had,
we decided to “roll down the windows and turn up the music”
and we had a fun day together!
Hope you had a fun weekend too!
This week will be filled with more Spring purging and fluffing!
Have a most beautiful and fun day!
