June’s DIY project: A dining room tablescape, do try this at home!

Posted on Jun 11, 2016 in Blog

Lately, I have been intrigued by multiple bouquet centerpieces and decided to try this for the M Magazine photo shoot.  I gathered vintage glassware, everything from vases to an antique sugar shaker, washed thoroughly and dried carefully.  Then I purchased grocery store roses, tulips, and various bouquets and broke them apart to create the effect assembled on the dining room table.  Small votives provided soft lighting and set the stage for a small plate gathering.  Please try this at home, it's easy, fast, and fun to do.  I found this so much more creative than a single floral centerpiece and it's less expensive.  Oh, I almost forgot!  The marble bust featured above was my client's great-grandfathers.  He purchased it Italy in the late 1800's while on a grand tour of Europe.  The antique bust anchors the floral display and adds a touch of the unexpected.
