I'll walk you through the elements I used to create this table below. While this is pretty fancy for a typical dinner, just using one or two elements for your table would be a great way to recreate the look at your home without being over the top.
As always, creating the very simple DIY flower arrangements is my favorite part. So many get intimidated by creating florals, but it really is fun so simple. I'll take you through step-by-step at the end of the post.
Shop 18" Very Tall Tapers, here.
I used the Falmouth Grey on this table.
I use the Provence Beige Linen Tablecloth with the Tuscany Napkins for a bit of a mix and match look. They colors are the same, just the patterns of the stripes are swapped.
I always order 54" square tablecloths because I like to see some of the wood peaking through. If you have a longer table, it will be help bring the eye to the center of the table. It also works perfectly on round tables. I just love how versatile the size is. I'll be using them this weekend for my brother's engagement party... stay tuned next week for lots and lots of photos of that!
Oak Tree Folded Cards for place cards at each setting. I love doing this for even small parties. Each person feels special, and it helps to make sure that everyone is seated by someone that they'll enjoy.
I made them in my favorite "vases" the Fleur de Lys Tumblers that I also used as water glasses at the table. They are the perfect size shape for a small grouping of flowers.
You can find very pretty spray roses at Trader Joe's or your grocery store. Both of these colors are fairly standard. They do a great job of opening up, too.
I started by trimming each the privet berries into little sprigs and put them around the base of the glass to create a "collar."
Then, I trimmed the roses to be just taller than the berries and put them in groupings in the middle.
