Table decor for two

happy summer

Summer brings out beautiful colors of nature ... beautiful fragrant flowers with vivid and vibrant colors ... I see them everywhere...So I though what better way to celebrate the beautiful summery days but to do a table decor with flowers from the garden....

This is a table decor for two( me and hubby) ... I recycled glass bottles to hold colorful flowers and wrapped a ribbon around the bottles to create a uniformed look... candles (yes the tall ones are battery operated:)) to create this simple but charming look..

I baked cupcakes and whipped some cream...It's fun to start with sweet dessert isn't it!!

What a lovely tablescape! Can't wait for your tutorial. I have just started keeping old glass bottles cos I now have the space for them in my new home.

Lovely post!

The ribbon wrapped around the recycled glass bottles filled with flowers is an incredibly clever design element in your tablescape. Way to go! I really like the water blue rim of your dinnerware. Thank you for sharing your design. Well done tablescape. Cherry Kay

Your dinnerware is so beautiful! I love the way you used your flowers. It is so hot here that most of my flowers are gone. It was lovely to see all the treasures in your garden.

Sharlotte said...

What a special table! I love your dishes and I agree, dessert should always come first! Thanks for sharing.

you can really see the love poured into the setting. I would not have known that was upcycled glass bottles. :O

thats really a clever idea to wrap those glas bottles with a ribbon. Looks cute. And those colorful flowers are very nice. But I am enthralled about your dinnerware, it looks phantastic, but alas you didnt mention who made them. But anyway, it is lovely. Thank you for sharing this wonderful table.
Greetings, Johanna

The flowers down the center are soooo those. The ribbon is such a wonderful addition to tie them all in. Beautiful tablescape!
