The room is decorated in butter yellow and red.
The inspiration was this floral fabric.
entire room, but I'm just as messy a tablescaper as I am a cook, so...
Daisies were the natural choice for a centerpiece. Miss Whimsy is the girl most likely to be married in a field of them...
Surrounded by butterflies.
The girl has had an unnatural affection for all things fluttery for as long as I can remember. She loves butterflies and dragon flies and lady bugs. When we decorated this room in middle school, she was way too old to litter a room with them. We had to secret them in subtly.
I've tried to do the same with this table.
See if you can find them.
OK, maybe not so subtle there...
How about here?
I made the napkins from leftover trim fabric from her room.
That’s the butterfly fold in case you can't tell.
The napkin rings belong to the Sister. I’m pretty sure they were a shower present from the Great Wedding Adventure of '82.
The dinner plates aren't subtle either.
They are decorative wall plates that I never bothered to hang on the wall.
I used a white charger to break up the busy pattern of the plate against the table.
Then I layered more plates to cover up the not-so-subtle butterflies.
The white plates with the scalloped edges are Carlsbad China from Austria.
I'm pretty sure they came from an estate sale.
I was trying to make it look all daisy~ish with the yellow bowl on the scalloped plate.
Can you tell?
The red salad plates came from K-Mart earlier in the year. They go with my new red kitchen. The butter yellow bowls came from Home Goods and belong to the Duchess.
And that's about it.
What a goofy way to spend my first day out of the classroom,
playing with dishes, and creating a table that absolutely no one will see.
Tomorrow is another day.
