Heaven and Earth

Hosted by LEIGH and SUSAN
Happy Thursday, everyone! I'm so glad to be joining you today! Now that I'm home again, I can definitely blog more!

So how do you get back in table designing after months of absence? You come up with something QUICK, BEAUTIFUL AND ETHEREAL! Nothing short of magical, right?

Leigh, Susan, our dear lovely hosts... You and our readers are probably thinking: "What could she possibly mean?" Well, sometimes when you dine, only just the right setting makes it.

Is it expensive? NO. Is it too unique? NO. Is it easy? YES!

This design inspiration came from IKEA. Yep... IKEA! I found this 79-cent a piece sandy beige dinnerware set and these sky blue and bamboo green napkins. The glasses, TARGET. The utensils, Hampton "LACE". The candles, IKEA again!

So you see? With just the right combination, color and lighting, it's just like dining up in HEAVEN while on EARTH... ENJOY!
Come and sit down, the menu is divine! Why? Because it is exactly what you wish it to be!
I'll take this seat. Did you decide on your first course yet?
Oh, isn't it so romantic and uplifting? I feel like I'm dining amongst the stars...
The bamboo trio and the big gray patched up candles "ground" the whole look.
I only used napkins and candles to add the sparkle and extra color (sky blue). A new twist to a heavenly dining experience, eh? Ehhh?
Now let's adjust our eyes and see how "bright" our night really is. With you as my guest, who needs Superstars?
Notice how I played up the circles and twists? It gives it an "eternal", I mean, enduring appeal. I'd definitely do this table again.
Just close your eyes and think of the "nectar of the Gods" you wish poured on your glass to savor.
You see that stack of dishes? We at least will dine on a "trinity" of deliciousness. I can't wait to see what appears on yours...
Mmm... That was definitely amazing! Let's enjoy the atmosphere and just be grateful... for being full! LOL
How about from this angle?
Up close maybe?
And closer still.
Well... What do you think? Did I lose my touch? I can't wait to see yours!

Thanks for stopping by!

Niceties first

HELLO AND WELCOME to this blog dedicated to my obsession of tablescapes, and ONLY TABLESCAPES!
That means that whatever I post will be redirected to tablescapes or you will see tablescapes or the dishes and glassware that I used AND wish to use.
I hope you like you what you see; but you can't do that unless you take the tour- the TABLESCAPE TOUR that's on the side bar! I'd also love to take you on my adventures on finding great dinnerwares to display and use while leaving some serious change in your pocket, so stay a while and see all of my great deals!
Wanna know the reason behind the madness, too? Then make sure to read, Why this blog for my philosophy.
