Guyanne is a gorgeous blond with sparkling bright blue eyes and peaches and cream complexion. I wanted to created a tablescape that spoke to her gentle personality and beauty.
A combination of soft yellows, blues, lavender pinks, and creamy white-on-white, all fit my desires perfectly. Let's take a look at the playbill for this production...
The Mottahedeh Cornflower Blue Lace charger takes my breath away each time I get to use it. Pictures don't do it justice. It has an amazing jewel like appearance. The creamy yellow matelassé tablecloth was an eBay acquisition. It's reversible to a lovely blue field with yellow motifs.
Go to work, my detail enthusiasts.
How would I complete a tablescape without at least a small contribution from our dear Nana? I don't know. The white napkin with light blue embroidered touches was used many years ago in her amazing and gorgeous dining room. I'm blessed to have her things for my tables.
And my place setting is complete.
Today's centerpiece continued my soft and fluffy concept. Soft and fluffy...a concept...right? Sure!
The Copeland Spode Jewel tureen...
...was surrounded by a quartet of hydrangeas in a mixture of colors...
...seated in the small Lenox creamy white urns. The tiny blue and white Asian compotes, maybe rice bowls, were found at an estate sales for minimal cost. I've used them as candleholders several times.
For Guyanne's birthday celebration we dined on King Ranch Chicken, a green salad with vinagrette dressing, hot yeast rolls, and once more, Italian Cream Cake from La Baguette.
