The Almost-Spring Tabletop

Lots of black, because of the never-ending soul-crushing bleakness of winter. (I may be being a bit dramatic* there). But then! Color and life! I’m pretending spring is here, via this tabletop. Makes sense to me.

Spring Tabletop #makingitlovely

  1. Almoco Flatware, DWR
    This could have probably used some shiny gold flatware, but black. Because that is apparently my thing now.

  2. Marimekko Napkins, Crate & Barrel
    Kind of wishing these were fabric, but the pattern is so cute, so oh well.

  3. Confetti Print Table Runner, Leif
    Confetti without the mess! (We’re still finding the occasional gold star confetti from August’s birthday party.)

  4. Cake Pedestal, CB2
    I bought this initially for a tabletop styling job, and it has proven to be exceptionally versatile — for a cake plate.

  5. Low Glasses, Kate Spade Saturday
    Brandon gave me a set of these for Christmas, and they are darling.

  6. Graphic Pitcher, Kate Spade Saturday
    I just love the shape of this thing. I’ve been eying it from afar since forever.

  7. Rainbow Fringe Garland, Furbish
    Party timez!

  8. Solitary Stroke Salt & Pepper Set, Leif
    Simple, but that brush stroke is so nice.

  9. Gabriel Candleholder, Crate & Barrel
    These look great in multiples, and they look a little different depending on the angle

  10. Tickar Striped Plates, IKEA
    Is there a better pattern than black and white stripes? Nope.

* For real though, the added daylight these days has been a huge mood-booster. :)

    I REALLY like that cb2 cake stand. Think it would work for a 4 year old’s birthday party?

      Yes! August’s cake was a giant rectangle, but we still used the cake stand for cookies.
