The line between fussy and non-fussy when it comes to table tops.
full-up with inspiration! Gathered here, are a bunch of my most favorite table-inspiring pins. (By the way, if you don't see me making this jar/candle/chandelier for my patio this summer, please, someone... pull me aside and have a little talk with me. I love it to pieces!!)
gray and turquoise and we're going with a dolphin theme.
gray and orange theme in to the mix. Somehow. I only have three ideas but I think it's a start and of course it will be cute in the end. I hope.
one table for all time, that kicks all other tables hineys, it would be this one. Pretty much everything about it screams my name. Seriously, it does. I think I'm going to make this table for myself. Maybe for MY birthday! Ha!
golden yellow sealed the deal for me.
orderly tables. I loathe cluttery ones with junk everywhere. I like my centerpieces dead center, or in a nice, agreeable line, like this one.
a good punch of color. So basically I'm a walking contradiction. Or a dining contradiction, rather.
casual but pretty. I always come back to this picture... It's been around for years, and has been pinned thousands of times. How can you not love a good ol' piece of brown paper and simplicity like this? So I'm off to put all of this inspiration to work now! I have something super sweet in the works for this weekend's celebration for my mama's birthday table- I can't wait to share! (I'll give you a hint though... I showed the paper plates and napkins the other day in a photo post! Which, admitedly is odd for me, since I normally use real plates etc. They were so cute I had to go with it. I'll try and make them "paper done right.")
What's your favorite way to set a table? How about centerpieces- do you prefer fussy or non-fussy. Lots of fluff on the table, or keep it simple? And HOW ON EARTH would you pull gray and orange off? Seriously, I'm asking. There's not a lot of that out there... help!
