Chanel Inspired Tablescape

Chanel Inspired TablescapeMany of you probably remember the Chanel Couture Spring 2015 Runway show. I talked all about it HERE because I was so mesmerized by it! Never mind the actual clothing, all of which was impeccable, by the way, I was so captured by the magical paper garden. It began white, but once watered by the “gardener,” bloomed into beautiful watercolored flowers. I’m telling you, it was magical! I have wanted to create something in the same vein ever since I saw the show. We decided to design a simple tablescape inspired by the white and watercolored paper garden used in the Chanel show. Complete with gorgeous dinnerware, glasses, and flatware, this Chanel inspired tablescape is a beautiful table for a baby or bridal shower or just a lovely dinner party with friends. The watercolor flowers are a whimsical touch to any setting, and really fun to create!

DIY Easter egg name settings

To top off the spring party spread (see previous posts here and here), I made these mini Easter egg name settings. You know me, I love things either really big or really small–it just makes things more whimsical. So, I came up with these little name tags that would be a cute topping for a plate setting. 
Materials: acrylic paints, paint brushes, wooden eggs (I got mine from here), black pen
Step 1: Paint the eggs in a solid color.
Step 2: After drying, paint on an oval shape in a coordinating color. I chose colors in similar tones.
Step 3: Top it off with a simple monogram for each person at the table. 
Donzo. I love ’em simple! 

 I wish this spelled something…missed opportunity. Sigh.

I picked up a ton of tabletop goodies for the spring table setting (see the full post here) including some simple candle votives from Ikea. They’re like $1.99 or something. With one simple step I gave them an ombre finishing. I LOVE how they turned out. I’m going to keep them in my stash. I think they’d be perfect for Mother’s Day, Easter, bridal showers, and baby showers.
