Simple Spring Tablescape

Happy Friday!
What are you planning for Mother's Day this weekend? Are you putting together a special breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner for Moms on Sunday?  I have a super simple, vibrant, tablescape I created in the spirit of celebrating Spring for my studio space.  It's the perfect inspiration for designing your Mother's Day tablescape! Choosing a festive fabric was my starting point, and used it throughout my design. 
This fabric definitely has a lot going on, but isn't it pretty? I paired it with a yellow gingham tablecloth..
so Spring!
Fabric wrapped around the centerpiece, gorgeous pink roses!
Adding interest, I paired a round dinner plate, with a square salad plate, and a fun fabric napkin set atop a rattan charger for texture.
In keeping with the spring feel, fresh herbs dill and rosemary were used as a parting favor.
This is perfect to double as a placecard, simply tie the name of your guest to the plant or set a tent card right in front.

As a prelude to the highly anticipated desert table, I added tiny cupcakes inside tealight holders for a taste of whats to come!
Cheers!

Happy Mother's Day to all! Enjoy your weekend!!

Festive Fiesta

I'm ready for some margaritas! Who's having a Cinco De Mayo celebration?  If you are looking for inspiration to get started, look no further! Chris from Celebrations at Home hit the nail on the head with her Mexican Fiesta!  I'm totally loving the ruffle tablecloth (shower curtain) she combined with a traditional Mexican Serape Blanket used for her tablescape design.

LOVE THIS! The ruffles are the perfect compliment to the Mexican Serape Blanket. I have a blanket already, just have snag one of those curtains!  
 
You'll want to check out Chris' contribution to the Celebrations blog and pick some tips and pointers on how to pull off your own Mexican Fiesta!

The rosette pattern can be found any and everywhere lately, and I'm a huge fan! I love girlie details, and  this is one trend that I wouldn't let pass me by.

Doily Decor

Some may think of doilies as "old" and grandma-esqe. But you should know that what some may consider "old" is now new! I've always loved the dainty, delicate, feminine, feel of doilies. They remind me so much of lace, and you know how much I adore lace! This little sheet of intricately cut paper circles, are not only used to decorate the plates you place your deserts and cakes. Create your own party decor using doilies. They are also perfect for Valentines Day decor.


Doily Garland
I am working on a little doily garland for this weekend.  I'll be sure to share it when it's complete. Love this all of these! Martha Stewart of course.

Doily Pom Poms- Instead of tissue paper, use doilies! I have to try this one of these days.

Found the final two photos on Esty. Check out Myhaleygirl etsy shop for more doily decor!

Past Parties: Thanksgiving Remix

I can't believe Thanksgiving is rolling around so soon! I know everyone is preparing for their Thanksgiving menu, I'll be away this year. But... last year around this time I was not only thinking about what I'll serve for the big dinner, but what I'll transform my left over Thanksgiving dinner into the next day.  Yep.. that's right, you read it correctly. The day after we packed on the pounds for Thanksgiving, we packed on some more pounds with the left overs!  I called it After Giving Thanks Remix Dinner. This was one of my favorite gatherings with my girls, and thought it would be fitting to share it with you (again), and those new to my blog.  So don't just make turkey sandwiches after Thanksgiving.. get inspired and REMIX IT UP!

The decor was also "remixed"! Leaves, nuts, and branches.were found in my backyard! 
 Candles floating in water sprinkled with shredded gold leaves
 I also used the leaves as food labels to identify the "remixed ingredient.
Shephard's Pie 
 
Turkey Caesar Lettuce Wraps
 Cranberry Spritzer
 
  Cranberry Butter
 For desert..Pumpkin Cheesecake "Remixed" Pops
Pumpkin crunch popcorn
 

 
  Left overs never looked so good! That's because they were spruced up with fresh ingredients. Mix it up!
 Enjoy your Thanksgiving, and the left overs!
