Simple is always in style.
But you know…
sometimes a table setting needs just a little bit of drama.
Like for a table setting with a bouquet that is large and in charge
and delicate dishes that are dainty and yet bold and beautiful.
It is no secret that I am a big fan of table settings and flowers and table settings with flowers. 🙂
And whenever I have the chance to play with a few new pieces I am a happy girl.
A couple weeks ago these beautiful dishes arrived from my friends at Arte Italica and honestly, some were a complete surprise. Like those smoky wine stems and charcoal edged Finezza chargers. But when I saw them, I envisioned something that was walking on the wild side just a bit.
And a pretty little and somewhat dramatic table came to life.
I shared a peek of this table setting in my Mother’s Day post last week- and today I am sharing all the details on those pretty little dishes.
These gray wine stems are gorgeous- and so different than what I normally use. I love how they play against the soft colors in the roses and bring a moody feeling.
I layered the smoky edged chargers with those beautiful little vintage inspired dishes.
With a subtle barely there floral pattern- they bring a vintage vibe and so much pretty to each place setting.
Black and white and blush needs a pop of elegance… and that gold flatware brought just that.
I love the long thin and clean lines they have.
As is- it is perfect for a welcoming Sunday brunch- but moody, bold and beautiful can transition to elegant evening set with just a few candles and a sprinkling of twinkle lights in the orchard.
Something I can’t ever seem to keep enough of in the house – taper candles.
So yes, I might be that crazy lady buying 10 boxes of them when I bump into them at HomeGoods. And lately, most of them have burned down pretty quickly. If anyone has a good source for candles- I would love to know more about it.
