Tablescapes, Moroccan Fantasy

Our anniversary is next week and we will be celebrating with 2 other couples at the beach.  That will be tons of fun, but I wanted to create a little romance…

    Jenna, this is beautiful. My sister-in-law and I are trying to come up with two different tablescapes for pier parties. I must start gathering and playing with it as soon as I can get there. I love this one. Where do you find all the great stuff that you don’t create yourself?? I like to shop at the beach but miss all the wonderful sources for dishes at the outlets there. You are such an inspiration and I mean it!!, Maureen

    Happy Anniversary! What a fun table filled with special details. Your chargers may just start a trend. Very clever idea! Of course I’m swooning over the parchment vase and candle holders. I’m a long time fan of McK-C, but don’t have any of the parchment pieces. That may need to change! ‘-)

    • Thank you Sarah, you have some enviable Mck-C pieces yourself and lots of other quite stunning pieces that I am always drooling over 🙂 Thanks for the anniversary wishes~and you will see some more charger ideas in the future!
