ROMANTIC RUFFLES

What is it about ruffles?


On bedding.
On tables.
Pillows & draperies

Ruffles are quintessentially romantic
They bring shabby vintage
yumminess to a room or space.


The romantics in us love a ruffles for their sweet frillyliciousness
& their layers and layers and layers
of charm & romance.


I found these ruffled pretties recently and used
2 of them as a tablecloth
on my outdoor farm table table for a romantic
early evening tablescape.


A little vintage china
a little silver
a little bling
&
pretty pink roses
mixed with a lot of ruffle...
perfect.


These are bedskirts which I found at


They have dreamy white ...
and creamy off white which looks like a tea stained linen- so divine.
I didn't buy them to use as bedskirts...
I had a few ideas in mind for them when I saw them.
The tablecloth was one of them.


I would love to make them into a duvet for my bed-
the one at Urban Outfitters talks to me every time I see it...
but not loving their price.


For now,
I am enjoying the beautiful white layers on my farmhouse table.


I've been making some changes out in the backyard...
hopefully it will be finished enough to share soon!

Have a Happy romantic Sunday everyone!
:)

*Since I have had several questions about these:
These are King size in white.
They are big on a table for sure-
but I was thinking about that duvet ;)
so I wanted the correct size.
The top material is a bit slick (maybe nylon?)
but it works and the ruffles are linen.
I haven't sewn it yet-
just pinned them together to create a nice drop for the table.
They are at Overstock for $33.99*

  12. Interesting use of the bedskirt! I bought the ivory one for my bed early spring at Stein Mart...a local store. I'll have to check the prices at O.co and see what the white costs...for a table cover! :-)

  19. Your inspiration was beautiful. I was wondering what sizes you used and what you did for the side that has no ruffles or do you totally redo the whole thing? Just wondering. Thanks, it is beautiful

  52. How much of a drop was the bedskirt? And also is it the same length on both sides when you use it as a tablecloth?
