Howdy partners, how’s it going out there?
Well it’s warm here and sunny, life is ticking along, as it does.
Just another tablescaping post here at the Beach Cottage….I wonder if you are bored yet, of these? I certainly am not. I love tablescaping, I know some may find this a strange sport, but I am a happy participant, and the ones with a challenge, such as an under $10 budget, seem to be the most rewarding.
To be honest, if someone could wave a magic wand and I could be dressing wedding tables or functions all day and getting paid for it, I’d be quite a happy girl. I’ve looked into it properly and as with many things, an opening for a mum with no formal qualifications in the field are nothing if not non-existent.
I don’t suppose there happens to be a Event Styling ‘person’ reading this blog who’d like me to come on board? No I didn’t think so. So I’m tinkering with doing it for myself, nothing like jumping in at the deep end is there? And as ever on here, let me know your views, comments always throw up things I hadn’t thought of or even considered. Would I really be any good? Could I do it? Do I have the talent and the transferable skills. It’s all very well doing one table in my own home. Where would I start? Those around me who read here and have had the wonderful-fortune to sit at one of these tables ;-) and Mr BC reckon I could. I dunno…
Anyway, enough of that. For this one I wanted to use the tiny shells I picked up on that cold beach walk the other day, some white flowers, my new wire-grey lanterns and little jam jars.
I picked up the cheapest flowers I could find, a budget bunch of gerberas and went from there. Stuck the gerberas in an old Mason jar, sprinkled the shells, added some tealights and picked some foliage from the orange tree in the garden.
I loved how this one turned out…white…vintage napkins and a hint of fresh…suits summer just round the corner for us Down Under and cost next to nothing, a $6 bunch of flowers and a few thrifted napkins…and the most beautiful tiny little shells…
See you tomorrow
