is my theory correct –
could red be a neutral background?
two bedskirts that I layered over the slipcover tablecloth I made creating
a soft layering of ruffles and lace.
I then carried the theme through
with layered china and such.
On this tablescape I added an additional layers
of a ruffled pink, checked infant bedskirt.
I received a large bunch of blue hydrangea blossoms from my
Mother-in-Law’s garden and immediately was inspired to
create a tables cape with the combination of pink and blue –
one of my favorite color combinations.
I used white milk glass goblet vases for the hydrangeas
and layered pink and blue dishes at each setting.
I carried the them throughout each tabletop and surface in the dining
room. On the hutch at the door I put the silk Peony arrangement
with beeswax candles alongside.
on the buffet I placed two cutwork lace valences as a runner
and the pink and green platter I recently obtained with
paper roses on silver in front, a ruffled cake plate to one
side finishing off with a rose teapot.
on the piano I placed the planter that I painted and decopaged as well
as a spray of silk roses along with a few angels.
On the window seat I covered the pillows with a blue tablecloth and
put a variety of pink and blue pillows on top.
On the two chairs at the window seat I placed pillow shams to cover the seats
and topped the chairs with blue & pink pillows.
I was very pleased with the look – I transformed a French Provencal Dining
room to a Romantic almost Shabby Chic room to complement the
Pink and Blue Tablescape.
