Last Thursday was the Little Silver Kitchen Tour. Such an amazing event and so many beautiful homes to see! I was lucky enough to work as the tablescape designer at one of the homes. It was a perfect match because the homeowner had so many beautiful vintage family pieces to incorporate into the decor AND it's a super friendly, colorful home. Bonus is the fact that the homeowner is also a friend and great collaborator! Foggia provided the beautiful floral arrangements.
Here's a rundown of what we did...
Nature Inspired Kitchen
The woodsy table and chairs were the perfect starting point to a nature inspired tablescape. Several vintage bottles filled with meadow flowers create a colorful centerpiece, which was grounded by a large galvanized tray. At each placesetting was a seagrass placemat from World Market, the homeowner's melamine pottery, vintage silver-plate flatware, Crate and Barrel linen napkins outfitted with galvanized napkin rings and yellow wildflowers. Drinking glasses were from West Elm. In each bowl was a menu of what the caterer, Et Al, was serving that day, along with a watercolor painted placecard. It was such a nice mix - a little bit of old, new and a good dose of nature.
Rich and Eclectic Dining Room
Our starting point in the dining room was the homeowner's vintage glass that she inherited from her grandmother. We incorporated it throughout the space - from a cake stand as the centerpiece used by the florist, to a punch bowl filled with a fern, to small crystal bowls filled with faux succulents and azalea blooms cut from the garden.
At each placesetting, we used the homeowner's wedding china set on top of gold dahlia Chilewich placemats from Gallery Jupiter. The finishing touch was a ranunculus bloom and some greens tucked into each napkin.
It was such a great event - thanks to the organizers and supporters of the event!
Until next time!
