2020 is the year of a lot of things but for me it is the year of Blue. It is so weird but I remember 2018 distinctly being the year I fell in love with Pink. I couldn’t get enough of it. I painted my daughters room pink, I bought all pink dresses, and I only wanted pink accessories in my home. But 2020, it is blue. I am loving all shades of it too: french blue, navy, light blue, etc. I am even doing my daughters nursery blue.
We decided to have a couple over for dinner and I had blue on my mind. The first thing I do when I put together a tablescape is to figure out my colors, which was easy since I had just received my Alice Neylor-Leyland “Serena” tablecloth. It is beautiful and the perfect tablecloth for those summer evenings. After the tablecloth is selected I usually play around with different placemats and plates. I really have a lot of fun mixing and matching patters but it was my husband who told me to use this arrangement. To top off a beautiful table I love adding florals and/or candlesticks. They are such a fun way to add texture, color, depth and height. I used these OYOY candlesticks (currently 50% off) that I had as decor in my living room and turned to Pointers Petals to create a beautiful arrangement for the centerpiece.
The evening was a success. We laughed, listened to music, and over served ourselves wine. Everything I want a dinner party to be!
