Creating an Organic-Glam Table


Spring is the season of celebration; the time for Mother's Day brunch, wedding showers, and graduations.  But you don't need a special occasion to create a beautiful table!  O.K., maybe you do need a special occasion if you have two crazy boys at home plus a busy work schedule, then . ;-) Mine is Mother's Day.

 Here is a simple spring table setting that would work for nearly any occasion!

My designer tip: try to stick to one or two colors for your table.  Then add different textures repeating the same colors.  It's similar to designing a room!  I knew I wanted to keep my Mother's Day table green & white.  When I saw these flowers at Home Depot I knew it was my jackpot.  Best part? They smell like honey.

I purchased small terracotta pots this fall, painted them with chalkboard paint to use as place cards when I'm feeling fancy, and I change the rim color to my liking depending on my linens.  This takes five minutes.  Truly.  I'm a lazy DIY'er and tend to shy away from projects, but if you find one take-away from my table, I recommend buying & painting the tiny pots.  I had a sample of "Seaweed" by Benjamin Moore in my cabinet  and it was a great fit with my napkins.
 More & more I'm drawn to organic elements of design.  Mixing natural grape wood and succulents with the vintage Greek key glasses is just my style.  I've become slightly addicted to succulents and greenery, so I grabbed plants from other rooms to place on the buffet.  Again, every plant has a different texture.  




Thank you for visiting my table!  I wish I could have you all over for dinner.  Wouldn't that be fun?
Is this natural-glam mix something you would try with your table?

  14. Your blog is lovely. I want those gold key rocks glasses more than I want oxygen. Any chance they are still for sale somewhere (please don't say they're old, please don't say they're old)?
