“I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me”
The past week has been a mixed bag of weather…snow, rain, freezing rain, and sleet! So what do you say… let’s escape to an exotic and faraway land for a safari!! Oh well, it sounded like a good idea. We will have to settle for an escape via our Tablescape Tuesday. Welcome to the wild side!
This tablescape did not start out this way in my mind. It was not going to be themed, but rather an elegant black, gold, and cream setting. You might say it evolved into this as I started adding “stuff”! Love spontaneity!
It definitely lends itself to a little “wild”!
The centerpiece is a leather zebra tray that you first saw here: Coffee Table Talk. I then searched my collection for what I would add! Always “shopping my house!”
The Fitz and Floyd cheetah holds a collection of feathers. The lidded box usually sits in a guest bedroom and the elephant candle holder has a twin somewhere in my house!
I like the collected elements in the tray!
The zebra placemats serve as the foundation for gold chargers, cream dinner plates, and initialed salad/appetizer plates. Amber stemware and tortoise flatware, along with porcelain place cards completes the place setting!
I think we could all learn a little something from this tablescape. It is fun and doesn’t take itself too serious!
I saw bow tie napkin rings in a shop in Raleigh and I just fell for them! That was until I saw the price-$24 each. I took a picture and showed to my sweet friend, Joann…and just look how lovely! Joann was my craft artisan for Seth’s and Allison’s wedding!
Katy found the vintage salt and pepper set at Gadsden Variety Antique Mall, owned by our friends, Mike and Sandy!
Hand carved bone box from India with a porcelain elephant that was a gift to Seth while a student at the University of Alabama (Roll Tide)!
This just might be the easiest and quickest tablescape ever!
I have always liked the safari/jungle theme and I didn’t purchase anything new…had everything you see in this setting!
I always keep a stash of feathers-love their warmth and texture! You can see another tablescape I did with feathers here: Peacocks & Feathers.
The faux sunflower-leopard stems added to our safari theme. They were perfect for the etched amber vases!
The giraffe is a bejeweled box and it stands on my other hand-carved bone box from India!
Hope you all enjoyed our walk on the wild side! So now what shall we have for dinner?!
