That regal gorgeousness- from lilacs, to plums to lavenders and aubergine.
And mixed with blush and greens- it is pretty much perfection.
It just so happened that I had that bouquet of gorgeous lilacs
that I shared over the weekend
and I had pretty blush colored roses that were blooming away as well.
And with Easter tablesettings on my mind...
I thought about a favorite idea that I simply don't do often enough.
And it involved something else that was purple.
I know what you are thinking.
A cabbage? Really?
Cabbages are for eating. Or for rabbits if you don't like them.
And truth be told- we enjoy purple/red/whatever your preference is cabbage
with our steamed veggies nearly every night.
I love it.
I am a bit of a steamed veggie freak I tell you
but seriously, a little purple cabbage with some pepper?
So when it came to setting a table inspired by spring -
as I placed each lacy detailed plates
with that gold flatware
and that mixed stemware
and then started to bring out a few of those lilacs
I thought about cabbage
and how absolutely incredibly amazing a purple cabbage floral arrangement
would love mingling with all that regal purple passion on the table.
And so- a few minutes later- voila.
I made two of these beauties- and I even made a video
Moi on video? It is happening more and more.
And I will be sharing a separate post with the simple 5 minute DIY
make your own cabbage bouquet instructions
and video shortly.
For now- let's just take a closer look at the table setting.
Of course the star here is the lilac.
With their intoxicating scent and darling little details
I wish lilacs bloomed all year long.
I set the table outdoors on the patio right next to the rock fireplace.
And because gold is simply one of the best pairings with royal purple
these gold glasses had to join in.
And when the sun started to set as I was photographing-
those glasses were almost glowing.
A mix of stemware- with the blush from the (are you ready?) Dollar Tree
and the deep purple from HomeGoods- they were a perfect mix and mingle
with the rest of the setting.
Sometimes something literally just starts coming together
as I play- and this is a perfect example of that.
From one purple thing leading to another-
to a table setting fit for a royal occasion this spring.
Coming up next- the easy details on that Cabbage Vase DIY
and a few easy natural Easter egg coloring ideas
that are as pretty as they come.
Hope your Wednesday is going well!
