Coastal Table Decorating Easter Daisy Vintage Style
Thu 31st, Mar, 2011
morning, morning morning!
how the devil are you?
shall we talk lemons, and mason jars and chic and nautical stripe?
The other day I was at the flower market on the way home from school and lemons were on offer along with Easter Daisies…I love Easter Daisies and even though now, Easter here in this new land is in Autumn, for me and in this climate, with Autumn bringing divine weather and sweet temperatures, it still makes me feel bright and cheery.
So anyway, I bought the lemons to make my own Limoncello, seeing as it is leagues above the stuff you buy in a bottle…I brought them in, plonked them into that big old mason jar I found recently and there they sat…doing nothing, not being made into Limoncello, but for sure looking good…
then when playing my favourite sport of tablescaping, where one day I do intend to compete and get a medal, I wondered how they’d look with the daisies
I stuffed the daisies into little white thrifted jugs…I love white for a coastal look as you know ;-)
the fabric I ripped up to give frayed edges…it’s some nautical coastal stripe that I had hanging around…
…also used that to tie the napkins for a bit of coastal stripe
…the napkins are all mis-matched white vintage…very simple thrifted chic
the glass balls I have had for ages…
I got them from a chic little Beach Boutique that I used to pass by just about every day but sadly it’s now closed down and been replaced by a bank…I mean I ask you how many banks does one town need?
I used some of the vintage bottles which are growing rapidly in this place…the coastal stripe tied around those too…
and the tiny Mason Jars that I found in Vinnies for a few cents each…
this turned out really happy and bright for me, I love it, so cheerful
…an idea for an Easter or Spring table perhaps
…and with most everything on the table vintage thrifted things and the lemons at about 2 dollars a net (I had two of them) and the Easter Daisies at 8 dollars
...a nice look on an even better budget ;-)
what do you think?? Does this make you wanna get outside in the fresh air?
Anyway let me know what you think of my tablescaping pursuits.
I will see you later with the next part of Beach Cottage Sweet Blogging (you can find all the other parts to this series here)
