The Landscape of your Table

A friend of mine was recently asking me about what to put on her new table and if I had any pictures. Do I have pictures? YES I have pictures!
So check out some of these different ideas for how to dress your table to look its best.

I am a complete sucker for Hydrangeas. Ahhhhh.... Obviously I'm not the only one. In all the pictures I looked at Hydrangeas were the number one choice for table dressing.

So much of it depends on the style of your room as well as the shape of your table. The length of this table as well as the style of the light fixture almost demand that you have something lengthy on it as well.

Simple glass jars filled with with stems of fresh flowers is the perfect adornment for this chippy farm table.

The great thing about dressing the table is that it's so easy and fun to change out! You can easily welcome the season with just a few changes to your table scape.

So tell me what's on your table? Can you guess what's on mine? I'll give you a hint, it starts with an "h"!

I would have to guess hydrangeas! My table has a big white pitcher filled with purple hyacinths.

Right now, my table has 3 cobalt blue glass bottles down the middle, each with a single daffodil in it. I love spring and daffodils!

That first photo is lovely - did you notice the unique chandeliers in alot of your pictures as well?

Fresh flowers brighten my day.. Haven't bought any for along time - trying to cut out extra spending - this post makes me even more anxious for Spring so I can begin cutting my own from the garden...
