dress your table


let's stroll through a few tables
to get some ideas
 
Use your garden on you table... make tree trunk placemats(1), use moss(2), bark(3), succulent roses (Sempervivum)(4),  cover Styrofoam balls with leaves(5)... and buy Anthuriums(6)!

~ dramatic flair ~ 
For a dramatic effect...
you can't go wrong with candlelight and red...


~ funky alfresco ~
(one of my favourites!)
Thought that you could only EAT pasta?  Maybe in Italy...


A Gerbera (or Barberton Daisy) is a lovely flower to decorate the back of a chair!  [Barberton is a historic mining town in South Africa - it's famous for its gold and…. the Barberton Daisy!]

You have some very creative table settings here. I´m sure guests feel very welcome in your home. Love the red!

@ Betty: I Wish I could take credit for the beautiful tables! - but I was just behind my camera's lens.

A local school (Grey-College, Bloemfontein) held this exhibition of table decorating, and it was open for 4 days for public visiting. There was about 30 tables decorated in the school hall, and the name of the exhibition was "Table Talk - the art of expressing yourself".

Me and my mum went there, and between us it was 'oohs ' and 'aahs' the whole time!

Wow, Ida! Die dekkings is pragtig. En jy is so kunstig met die lens. Ek wens jy was die week hier en kon my help met photos by 'n PRAG- onthaal wat ons bygewoon het. Ek pos Dinsdag daaroor. Liefjou, pragtige mensie. In Sy diens. Jo (Khartoum)
