Baby’s Breath for Wintertime

Ahhhh…it’s that time of year for the great color known as Winter White.

Mix it with a little dark forest green accent, and it’s absolutely gorgeous on a table. I’m pretty obsessed with this whimsical baby’s breath bouquet.

Imagine a row of vases filled with baby’s breath down a table – monochromatic, simple, and striking.

The great thing about baby’s breath is that it’s available any time of year, usually at your local supermarket, and is inexpensive compared to any other flower.

A few small accent vases, such as this succulent nestled in river rocks, would also be a lovely addition.

And I LOVE this placecard holder! Perfect for a rustic at-home holiday dinner.

P.S. I picked all these photos and got excited about how perfect the colors are, and then I remembered – I wrote another post about winter white and evergreen already! Siiighhhhh…It’s a sign. I love this color scheme.

Easter Egg Placecards

This was the final brunch table! I kind of loved it, I’ll admit it. Easter-y without being cheesy. I was dying easter eggs at 1am the night before, but you know how you have to suffer for fashion? Sometimes you have suffer for pretty tables too :)

I was inspired by Martha Stewart Living’s April issue to put sticky vinyl letters on eggs and then dye them. Unfortunately, my letters didn’t stick very well and the dye got under a few of them.


IMG_0666But no matter…I wrote in the rest of the names with a gold pen and hoped the fuzzy letters made for extra charm.

Dinner Party of Blue, White and Chocolate

I was preoccupied with Payback Time last week and didn’t tell you all about my dinner party! It was my dad and I, a good friend of mine from home and her parents, who were also good friend with my parents back in the day. Clear?! Ha.

I got excited about this blue, white and chocolate color scheme, and bought this gorgeous paper at the paper store around the corner with which to wrap vases for the table.


Which I filled with fluffy white flowers and paired with blue-silver placemats.


I made simple placecards out of gorgeous chocolate-colored paper and a white gel pen.


And placed them inside a napkin envelope – which I didn’t iron! I ran out of time. There was nothing to do but just go with the wrinkly look and hope it worked in a casual way.


I think it worked okay. It’s the least complicated table I’ve designed in a while, and I liked the minimalist simplicity that it had.

I’ll post the menu and recipes soon!

Truffle Boxes from Etsy

A while ago I mentioned making truffles for your guests as a dessert or party favor, and using the box in which you place them as a placecard holder.

It can be hard to find any little boxes at all, though, much less cute ones, so I found some pretty boxes from Etsy sellers on which you could either write a name or perch a placecard (click on the photo to go to the Etsy shop).







Rainbow Colors Inspiration

I came across this table on 100 Layer Cake and absolutely fell in love.


It is so gorgeous! The hues meld in perfect colorful harmony, and against the monochromatic background of white, cream and silver, the rainbow colors pop.

I especially adore the yellow persimmon on the white plates. It’s different, playful and surprising, and would be the perfect vessel for a placecard attached to a toothpick.
