Tablescapes, Sparkling Sea of Tranquility

I have always had a fascination with glass, the magical way it transforms light and makes shadows dance with color…

Looking around for something to fill my lantern,

I began experimenting with small glass bottles

Do you see all the different shades and tones that are made from the reflected light?

More glass, small baubles, and then some lights

I used 2 strings of tiny LED battery lights inside the lantern

After a wonderfully hectic family weekend, HH & I were really for some tranquility!

So I set this table for relaxation and civility!

No sippy cups and plastic ware, just pretty china, glasses, and calm everywhere

Round, square, diamond and bubble, makes for fine dining without any trouble-

The pattern on the plates looks like the waves the sea makes

As the day becomes night,  the sun sinks out of sight

The candles are lit and we’re ready to sit

    I LOVE YOUR ALL YOUR TABLESCAPES, THE PAINT BUCKET, OF COURSE THE PAINTED APRON, BLOGS, AND EVERYWHERE ELSE I CAN FIND YOU.

    Beautiful! I think you knew how much I would like this blue and green table, didn’t you? The light does bounce off glass in amazing patterns, especially with candlelight. Cute flatware.
    Enjoy the rest of the week.
