Vintage Tablescape Inspiration

 Look at this gorgeous outdoor table 
in the current issue of Victoria Magazine. . . 
Isn't it beautiful?

What a beautiful setting

Don't you just love all that shabby, pink, rose loveliness?

It has inspired me to to set up a similar look with a spring table . . . in our yard,
with items from my shop . . . pretty vintage linens, an old bird cage, 
a silver candelabra, some vintage dishes . . .  fresh flowers . . . . . an old picnic basket, 
some French books . . . . . and how about some of these?

and maybe some of this . . .  

When the sun is out and the lawn can be mowed, I look forward to
sharing an outdoor spring tablescape setting with you.

Hope you have a great week!
Thank you for all of your kind and wonderful comments.
 I look forward to visiting you.

  5. This post was a real treat for me this morning!

  6. Julie, such wonderful inspiration! Do you know I actually bought the neatest old chippy farmhouse table last summer for the very purpose of mixing in my mismatched chairs for an outdoor dinner party? I have a huge gazebo and am planning on having it there. Such wonderful photos! Thanks so much for sharing, and I saw your pics via Wow Us Wednesday, have a wonderful week, and can't wait to see what you do with yours, xoxo tami

  7. I just found your blog and am your newest follower. Your inspiration is magical and I love your wicker bench and accessories. Thanks for the fabulous blog!

  8. What a perfect setting for a garden party! Beautiful!

  9. I just loved the combination of chairs, especially that huge, would you call it a wing back? How pretty. I feel like I am being tortured with spring! Maybe soon!

  10. Oh this is just tooo cute, Julie! And I love how the chairs are different colors...how precious. I hope you're having a great week.

  11. I love everything about that gorgeous table setting - especially the location! I have the perfect setting and the pretties for the table, to create that kind of beauty myself. I just need for my grass to hurry and turn green. ;)

    Thanks for joining the party.

  12. Can't wait to see it. Love your chairs. The one in Victoria magazine is so beautiful, but I bet yours is better!!

  13. Absolutely gorgeous!! such inspiration- I am soo ready for spring!!! Your chairs are darling :)

  14. Hi Julie!
    I can't wait to see what you set up! I love those chairs and also the green flower pillow from the magazine photo - so much inspiration!
    Thanks for the visit and your kind words. Did you happen to notice the muslin ribbon (from your shop) that I used for the Paris sachet? I'll be visiting again soon to see what else you have.

  15. Oh Julie...a girl after my own heart! I almost fainted when I saw this in Victoria. I love to set outdoor tables in the garden, mainly because I have no matching china and I can get away with it.hehe! The kids love to eat 'out' when they visit and it gives me a chance to use this huge garden more. I definitely will be doing a lot of it this Summer after seeing these pictures.

  16. Loving all the beautiful colors....thanks for sharing

  17. OMG I have fallen in love all over again. Back in the UK I had this gorgeous style in my old house. However here in New Zealand the national identity seems to be more sterile and modern. I guess thats why I tend to focus my tablescapes on colour rather than style. You have however, made me realise that I should stay true to my first love and add lots of different elements to create the look that you have managed so incredibly!

    I am definatewly becoming a follower!!
