Posts Tagged ‘Patterns’

Last week, I posted my dreams for a great Mother’s Day celebration. I’m pleased with how it all turned out – especially the table! I love this orange and pink inspiration picture and really wanted to make it a reality in our house.

Orange and Pink Tablescape1The table runner was the starting point for me with this table. Its actually a full tablecloth (from the colorful summery tableware section at Target) that I folded and used as a runner. The white tablecloth is one my mom has let me borrowed for several years and is from Williams-Sonoma. The napkins are just a yard of fabric I cut into sixths. I love the Greek key pattern playing off of the lines of the table runner ..and of course I love the orange!

Orange and Pink Tablescape4The chargers are ones I’ve had for years (from Bed, Bath and Beyond) and the china, flatware and goblets with silver rim are all wedding china and glasses. The pink goblets are also from Target (in the same seasonal tableware section as the runner) as well as the multi-colored dipping bowls. I love that they had several colors grouped together so I bought a pink set and an orange/yellow set.

Orange and Pink Tablescape2The flowers are my favorite part. I purchased three sets of colorful roses from our local grocery store that has an awesome floral department (Uptown Grocery for those in the OKC area) and mixed them up to make these arrangements. I am in love with the combination of pink, coral and orange. The vases are from Dollar Tree (the best place for glassware like this!) and I let my mom and grandma each take one arrangement home with them as their Mother’s Day present so now we have one lonely vase – I may need to go get more for myself!

Orange and Pink Tablescape3 I’m so happy with how the tablescape turned out. This will be a fun and vibrant area to look at as the weather continues to get warmer and warmer – come on, summer!

Mad For Plaid

Right now, I am mad for plaid! It has been creeping up on me and now with the cooler weather, I am head over heels for this pattern.

Like this plaid button-down from J. Crew. I remember this shirt from several years ago and its back again! I’m convinced plaid is forever.

And this shirtdress from Gap…it would look so cute with leggings and boots!

But mostly, I’m mad for plaid for Christmas. I love this picture I saw on Pinterest! It was taken for HGTV’s Christmas and is so chic with the combination of traditional plaid and modern black/white. I am definitely using this as my inspiration for our 2012 Christmas home!
