Wonderful Idea for Any Party

Hey guys, while cruising around today (actually looking for something else)
I came across this stunning tablescape.
I had to share.

from a lovely blog in Norway called

they actually won someone's competition for the
most-loved tablescape last year.

How many different kinds of parties would this work for?
Change the colors and voila, you have something masculine,
holiday, big girls, little girls, spring, fall,

Do you love?

Don't forget StoneGable's Menu Monday
beginning this Monday.
Yvonne's icon is up top on the right, just click over
to see what you need to do.
Let's make this a HUGE success for her !!

That tablescape is positively GORGEOUS! Thank you for sharing & have a fabulous weekend:)

Ann said...

I do love!
But, I hate to be a party pooper- the poor guests won't be able to see each other and will, no doubt, remove half of the tall accessories during dinner to see who they are trying to talk with. It would be perfect for a grazing party, though.

Oh Annie...well you are the professional on these kinds of things, and I will defer...however, I think I would let it be, and change it when we got ready to be seated.

I love this! It looks so lush and inviting! x Sharon

I love the idea of a forest of candles but not for the dinner table as I like to see my guests. Would work a treat for a buffet or 'walking table' though. Simply lovely idea!

I do love. I would love to be a hostess but it makes me so fraught, it's a rare thing for me to entertain at home.

Oh darling Marsha, your turquoise earrings on your sidebar look good enough to eat, like CANDY! Precious friend, I am so tickled that you have visited me. And to answer your question about what comes first, the photos or the ideas? The chicken or the egg? An enigma, indeed. It depends. Like for example, this morning I was out digging in the garden. Suddenly, an idea come to mind. Now in order to get that idea into visuals, I just HUNT and then if I find something that fits, then there it is. Or I may see a picture and SUDDENLY I have something upon which to build an idea. It all depends. I believe writing to be a spiritual experience that comes from within and just have to BE PRESENT for it to come to front of the computer or at the desk with pen in hand; similar to your lovely art work, I suppose....happy day dear one, Anita

Wow, this is impressive. So gorgeous and the only downside I can see about a tablescape like this is that I would be admiring the decor so much, I'd forget about my food! I agree that it's easily adaptable for any occasion.
