For the Spirit of 67 Home Tour, we wanted to create the atmosphere of having lunch in a French flower shop. Finding exquisite dinnerware was not a problem, as the homeowner, Kathleen, had an incredible collection of fine china and crystal to choose from. Using her gold rimmed vintage plates, we layered them with a more contemporary glass salad plate and created fresh floral mosaics under each glass plate. We arranged the small flowers under the plates 24 hours before the event and they stayed absolutely fresh and perfect- we were so relieved! We set the place settings on individual trays made of a platinum glazed wood. Our favorite leopard napkins - very French and a best seller at the store- were draped under each setting . A collection of varying heights and sizes of square glass vases were used for the centerpiece, with a different flower in each one, as if you could just pick and choose your own bouquet- just like in a flower shop! Today we will be joining Susan at www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com for Tablescape Thursday.
