Tablescapes, It’s a Pattern Party!

This started out innocently enough…

I wanted to use my Painted Chargers in a totally different way

The silver pieces led to crystal goblets

and it was all quite crazy…

It reminded me of the quote “Too much is never enough!”

  1. I think it is much more interesting to mix it up. When everything is done the way our mothers did it with a white damask cloth and matching sets of china with carefully coordinated crystal and silver, it can still look quite elegant, but mostly it looks predictable. Dare I say: Boring. I like the chargers with the glass around the edges in last one of your photos here — very snazzy!

    I love that great tablecloth! Looks like a fun setting and I still say those charges will be fun at Halloween:@)

  3. Kathleen says:

    I love how your chargers came out. There is a time for matching, and a time for fun patterns. Room at the table for all!

  4. Rosie says:

    I LOVE this table!! Your chargers work perfectly, and those coming to the table will be greeted with so much to enjoy, they’ll surely smile: love the patterns and colors! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

    What fun and creative tablescapes… thanks for the inspiration. And the Moroccan fantasy is just beautiful!

    I absolutely LOVE your table scrapes. They are so fun and colorful, filled with beautiful dishes, arrangements and serving pieces! The chargers turned out lovely. I have a set of red I used only once. It has inspired me to paint a decorative border on them to give them some personality!

  7. Such gorgeous patterns! You hit it out of the ball park my friend. Beautiful!!

  8. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with mixing it up a little bit and having fun with a lot of color and pattern! I, too, subscribe to the theory of “too much is never enough”, so there you have it!!!

    Love the whimsy and creativity at your table with your swirls, dots and scrolls Jenna! Your tablecloth is a fun foundation and I love seeing the back of your painted birdhouse with those large polka dots 🙂

    I love pretty tablescapes, but I have to admit that I haven’t done one in a super long time. I guess my family doesn’t really appreciate it as much as I do 🙂 Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday.

    I love what you did with the chargers so cute and like you said so very versatile. I love mixing patterns and colors.I am not a designer nor want to be and can’t afford to be of twelve servings in a pattern so I always mix and match with what I have. I think this table was so soft and pretty and whimsical too.Susie

    Still not typing much due to rotator surgery, but had to let you know that I adore what you did with the chargers. Score!
