I'm joining in the tablescaping fun over at Grits and Glamour today.
Barb is holding a little "party" every week called Tabletop Tuesday where bloggers can share their tablescapes and gain all sorts of ideas and inspiration at the same time. I can loose so much time futzing with a tablescape . . . getting it just right.
What I wanted to share today was the dining table that's in my living room. We don't have a formal living room, so I put this gate-leg table in there for extra seating when needed. I grabbed up this table at a furniture resale shop for $60! My plan was to refinish it (another one of those procrastination projects!) soon after I purchased it . . . aaaa . . . over a year ago. The chairs, I picked up at the local Salvation Army store for $15 for the pair. I did get them repainted. Still on the lookout for more chairs for this table.
Anyway, I have this table decked out in celebration of upcoming Valentine's Day. As you can see, this simple vignette is arranged in a very symmetrically and balanced fashion, which seems to work best with the pieces I'm working with.
I love the whimsical feel of this table with the silvers, pinks and reds. Another thing that makes me smile every time I pass this table, is that virtually everything on it once belonged to my grandmother.
Click on over to Barb's blog and check out all the other great tablescapes featured. I'm heading over for more inspiration myself!
Thanks for visiting!
