Nothing speaks to the end of summer quite like sunflowers. And sunflowers with their golden hues make me dream of Provence. This is the inspiration for my breakfast tablescape this morning. I did some shopping in my dish closet, my "Prepared Hostess" cubbies and my favorite dish store, Pier 1 :)
I just love the rich accents of reds and blues to the golds of the tablecloth, sunflowers and plates. I've discovered a new detail in tablescaping, layering! I've picked up some wonderful tips from Susan at Between Naps on the Porch over the past year. She is so talented, and handy :) And her followers are too!
This unexpected pop of blue really brought out the best in the tea cosie, wouldn't you agree? And then it just added depth to the plate for scones layered on top of the tea napkin.
I'm drinking French Breakfast tea this morning as I dream of sunflowers in Provence and head off to work on our new catalog.
While I do that, hop on over to Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday and fabulous inspiration!
