I know for many of you it doesn’t quite feel like Spring yet when it comes to the weather, but you can at least make your house feel the warmth. Here in Los Angeles, it was something like 80 degrees yesterday so the trip to the Farmer’s Market for the weekly supplies and flowers was definitely a go. I think getting the flowers is my favorite part of the week. There is just something about fresh flowers and how they make your home feel even more inviting. Plus, we got these beauties for about $4. They are very fragrant and sometimes we get about 2-3 weeks worth of use out of the ones from this booth. I always add new ones each week though.
This tablescape is fairly simple to do. I found a strip of green tulle on sell at JoAnn a few weeks ago, and I thought well this will be useful with St. Patrick’s Day coming up. I didn’t know at the time exactly what I wanted to do with it, but I ended up using part of it for this tablescape. I simply cut it off the roll so there was no sewing. Easy peasy, right? Now if you’ve been reading The Dahlia Scene for awhile you’ve seen these chalkboard wine bottles in various uses so it was only right to use them again for this scape. I wanted to add height anyway. The flowers really helped with that. The candle was a purchase around the New Year from Bath and Body Works. It is Butternut Rum flavored! Yes, I think all candles are flavored and not scented. The lower height of this piece allows me to be able to look at my Beeble without having to move anything around.
So it’s simple, beautiful, and easy to do. You can customize it as you want. What more could you ask for in a tablescape that will last the length of the Spring season with only a few changes in flowers.
