Last week we had the pleasure of hosting some friends for a dinner. We had a great time and I had almost as much fun setting the table. I wanted to do something different. I was inspired by the latest issue of Southern Living Magazine (if you haven’t seen it….what are you waiting for). They showed several floral options that incorporated fruits. Which I thought was so fun.
I decided to give it a whirl. First I used a vintage soup tourine that I got for a wedding shower gift.
I went to a local grocery store and got all kinds of fun greens, flowers, kale, and pears! I started with floral foam in the bottom of the tourine and took pine bows to the edges to start drapping over.
Then I just kept adding different textures together and I think it turned out pretty fun!
I also mixed wedding china, grandma china, kate spade dot wine glasses, waterford water goblets, and my fun flea market candelabra set.
I wanted so much variety in the arrangment that I ended up having some extra flowers….
So I made a second arrangement for an end table….For this one I used a cake platter. I like how this one draped too!
