Vintage Shop Tablescape

A few weeks ago, I shared this beautiful tablescape inspiration 
from Victoria magazine,

which was my inspiration to do an
outdoor tablescape with items from my vintage shop.

 The sun was shining . . . the Captain was able to mow the lawn . . .
and help with the heavy stuff . . .  
and we came up with this

We started with our outdoor table, a vintage tablecloth, 
some vintage chairs [love the old hotel chairs] and a wicker loveseat;
added vintage dishes and hankies for cloth napkins.
For Easter, we put eggs in the silver candle holders and candelabra 
instead of candles, added birds with paper bird nests,
some silver jello molds that I thought looked like flowers,
and put together other items to make up vignettes.

We added a side drop leaf table with a couple more chairs,
a vintage coffee set, an old book stack,
a rusty end table with a silver bowl full of old glass floaters,
 some fresh daffodils, and more paper nests.

I'm just a beginner at this shop stuff. All of you experts,
feel free to give me any input and advice :).

Thanks for stopping by. 
Hope the sun is shining where you are and you're 
enjoying the first days of spring.

  3. Wow Julie! What a lovely outdoor room you created!! How fun!! Did you all eat out there?? I would have to! How delightful!!

    I love it all! Thanks for sharing it with us! What a fab hubby to help with it all, too!

  4. What a beautiful outdoor room! I'm so jealous! It's definitely not outdoor dining weather, yet, here. Love the liberal use of vintage items. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Girl, you did a great job with this table setting. I love how you used stuff from your shop to create. I think you are one smart lady.

    Happy Easter!

  6. Hi! I'm your newest follower and I must say this is absolutely divine!! I just LOVE how you used the candlesticks for egg holders! Why didn't I think of that before??? lol.... :) I look forward to seeing what you have in the future. Have a blessed weekend!!

  7. So, so beautiful Julie, (& a lot of work)!! Every detail considered. Love the grape hyacinth on the plate and the green chairs, ohhh! All so pretty!! I'd LOVE to have tea there!! I can feel the breezes now!! -sigh-

  8. Hi Julie!
    Happy Easter :) I just love what you've done here - so many pretty and interesting things to look at. It looks like such a great place to shop!!! I think you have a good eye for design and display. I so miss having my space in the antique store because for one I miss setting things up. It's kind of like getting to re decorate your home every few weeks. Looks like you've been bitten with the same bug and I say keep going..can hardly wait to see what you come up with next :)

  9. I'm late getting around to visit the tablescapes this week. Enjoyed my stop here. This looks like a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. Hope your are enjoying a delightful Easter Sunday. ~ Sarah

  10. Hi Julie! Oh my goodness, you do not seem like a beginner AT ALL! You definitely have the knack for this and I felt like I was flipping through the pages of a lovely magazine chock full of inspiration and gorgeous vignettes. Thank you so much for linking this up this past weekend to our Inspiration Friday party!

  11. Great job, it all looks wonderful. I just love the idea of using the candle holders as egg cups.

  12. Julie your tablescape inspiration is equally fabulous!!!

    It truly is about all things romantic in cottage style, and you pulled it off Home and Garden Girl :)

    Love that you made a visit to my place and I love even more coming over to see this inspiring setting :)

    Have a beautiful week of inspiration!

  13. Breathtaking! All you needed were the horses in the background! lol Magazine worthy! Just beautiful.

  14. Julie, this table is gorgeous!!! I am not even a novice, but to me I think this is all terrific!!!
