Building a Tablescape


this is a card table in the corner of our family room.
(fabric and lace can make anything look good.)
I was doing a black and cream tablescape, so next, I draped some black fabric on it over the lace.
(this is a scarf i wear, and the fringe was so fun). The other piece of fabric is one i bought to make pillows out of, and haven't gotten to it. =0)
Next add your dishes, silver, napkins, and wine glasses. (notice the polka dot ribbon on the glasses?) I love a bit of whimsy!
Finish with memorabilia, and a bit of black ribbon on the vines above the nest.

That was a quick over view of the basics.
Next post has all the details.

Enjoy.
