Table Top: Easter | 04.18.14

Happy Spring & happy (almost) Easter! It’s a beautiful time of year to celebrate with the ones we love. I present, for your consideration, a collection of table top ideas for dressing your dining table this weekend (or any day you might fancy this Spring)!

Strike the right chord with a vibrant blend of Spring colors (cobalt & coral, anyone?), and keep it balanced with crisp white and barely-notice-you-but-still-need-you clear.

Clean and simple is always classic. Simple lines in muted earth tones keep things feeling sophisticated and chic.

Inject some whimsy – use an eclectic mix of dishes to play up the fun. Keep it all in the same color family to keep it cohesive.

Go glam with drama – keep the palette simple with basic black and white (with a touch of green of course) but play up height & proportion.

Run with a rustic style – add wood elements (planter boxes or charger plates, etc), vintage or thrifted dishes and plenty of laid back vibes.

bluesy | simple | eclectic | glam | rustic

 

Whatever your style & whatever you are celebrating, I hope it’s all filled with love and laughter. Some of the best times are those relaxed moments around the dinner table with friends, family, wine, memories and laughs.

 

How do you decorate for Spring?

Monday Mood: So Fresh & So Clean | 3.24.14

It’s Spring (or so they tell me)! The color palette of the season is undoubtedly pastel, but can it be anything more than what we dye our Easter Eggs?

Oh. Yes.

Pastels are light & airy.

They brighten and invigorate.

They charm and refresh.

Can pastels be anymore than something sweet? For sure. So on this Monday, I hope you find yourself feeling refreshed, invigorated and ready for the week ahead! So fresh & so clean, clean….

I can’t help it. As another 6-8 inches of snow falls down on me, all I can think about is “it’s February. February is only 4 short weeks. Then it’s March and sometime in March it usually starts to warm up. Soooo… only a few more weeks. Practically there…” This winter has been hell and I have to keep my eye on Spring or I’m going to curl up in the abyss of snow in my backyard and cry.

I feel warmer already.

Is that…. Is that a road clear of salt & snow that I see??

You mean I don’t need 57 layers to go outside??

Design Files: Dreaming of Spring | Linzeelu Thank You

And just like that, spirits are lifted and I’m happy (and warm). At least until the next time I look out the window….

Are you a snow bunny or are you just as excited as I am for Spring???

 

Happy hump day!

Linzeelu, Thank You
