Well, Sunday is our big day. We leave tomorrow on our trip to the British Isles and Paris. I can hardly contain my excitement. The house sitter is coming to take care of our little Cindy and also to stay with my daughter. Neither one of them like it when the suitcases come out.
We have wanted to visit the British Isles for a very long time, and when the chance came along to tag Paris on as well, I jumped at the chance.
So in honor of the occasion I included a couple of my Marie Antoinette cards to my tablescape today.
I used my gold chargers that I have had for years. The aqua plates are Home Goods and the crystal is Waterford Castelmaine. I paired some sparkles with a burlap table cover to give this look a little yin and yang.
I also used some old Victorian silver pitchers that have lost their silver, but I absolutely love the patina they have now.
In addition to the flowers, I used an old Victorian wicker tray and covered it with pretty shells and polished turquoise beads.
The napkin rings are actually hair clips. Don't worry, no one has ever used them. I loved the colors in the clips and thought they would complement my seashell theme.
The flowers are Alstroemeria and soft hued roses.
The starfish plates are also Home Goods.
Thanks so much for taking a peak at this week's tablescape. Hopefully I will have email, but, of course, we plan to spend as much time as we can seeing the beautiful sights.
