New Years Tabletop and Art Deco Crowns

New Years Tabletop

2019 is just around the corner (how?!?!!), and we’re busy preparing for my New Year festivities. If you’ve been here for any amount of time, it’s very likely you’ve spotted one of our tablescapes (we even have a whole series of them here!). I love finding unique dinnerware to add to my collection. I look for quality pieces that can be used for years to come and Lenox dinnerware has always been a favorite of mine. You can imagine how stoked I was to find that two of my favorites, Domino Magazine and Lenox, got together and made magic. As a long-time Domino lover, I will cheer on everything they do and their new collaboration is truly worth cheering over.

See how we were inspired by the collection to make some DIY Art Deco Crowns!

Royal Wedding Floral Tea Party

Royal Wedding Floral Tea Party

Sometimes an occasion just calls for a tea party. And who does tea parties better than the Royals? We were inspired by the lush florals that adorned Prince George’s Chapel on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding day. Were you able to catch a glimpse? The arches were covered with white roses and plenty of foliage to create an almost ethereal look. We pared down the look so it would be appropriate for an elegant centerpiece. We used a mixture of tissue paper, crepe paper, and cardstock to get a really lovely mix of textures. Of course, we have to include our Royal Wedding mugs to complete the look!

Painted Plaid Paper Tablecloth

Tis’ the season for throwing a brightly colored brunch, summery soirees, lovely luncheons, and gorgeous garden parties. In regards to decor, we’re leaning towards the simpler route in this case. Let’s face it, if you have to worry about pricy and time-consuming tablescapes, it’s never going to happen. Anyone relate? We created this Painted Plaid Paper Tablecloth because it’s brightly colored and perfect for spring and summer. Not to mention easy, cheap, and disposable. Please and thank you. To create this all you’ll need is white butcher paper and some acrylic paints from the craft store. So don’t be discouraged to throw a few gatherings in the next couple months! This Painted Plaid Paper Tablecloth is the perfect addition.

DIY Painted Cardboard Vases

DIY Painted Cardboard Vases

This tablescape was inspired by traditional blue and white porcelain that seems to never go out of style. The earlier versions of white pottery with blue glazed motifs have been found in 9th century present-day Iraq. China began their own renditions in the 14th century and the trend finally caught on in Europe in the 18th century. Can you believe it’s still popular today?! We wanted to make a paper version as a cheap and quirky alternative to the real thing. Enter: DIY Painted Cardboard Vases. We recycled cardboard boxes to cut out some traditional vase forms and then painted them to give them some real character! You could paint more traditional designs such as plant and botanical patterns, or make them a bit artsier. Here, we were inspired by the work of Danielle Kroll for our patterns. Easy, cheap, and sure to make a statement!

Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape

Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape

April Showers bring May flowers… so I guess you can say we’re jumping the gun a little bit over here! This Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape is the perfect way to welcome in Spring! It also involves two of our favorite things: rainbows and flowers. We created layered 2-D paper flowers in different shades of pink, orange, yellow, blue, and purple to create a rainbow of flowers down the center of the table. Paper, wire, and floral foam and then only materials you need to make this stunner. It would be perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch, a spring bridal or baby shower, or a rainbow themed birthday party!Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape
