Italian Table Inspiration:
The Italian table inspiration for this table came from a few platters that I received as wedding presents (Marshalls) from my in-laws. This is my typical go to tablescape for more semi-casual family gatherings. I love these platters! They have all of my favorite colors in them, specifically, blue, white and yellow. So most of my entertaining-ware that I own are in those colors. It allows me to mix and match quite often so I don’t get sick of the same plates or bowls.
The blue plates, silverware, and blue wine glasses are all from target, also wedding gifts. The table runner and napkins were a find a while ago at Marshalls (Williams-Sonoma brand).
The candles and terra cotta pot trays (shown above) came from Michaels. I love these pillar candles, I always keep them on hand. I’ve had them for about 4 years now and they just keep going.
At first, when I received these goblets (shown above) that I had registered for, I have to admit, I was a little disappointed at how large they are. But after using them for the first time, I absolutely love them!!! They just add so much elegance to a casual setting. I always feel like a queen when using them. Also, they are amazing to use for puddings and dips.
I love the detail in these blue pates (shown above), very simple but adds a little something extra than just a plain blue plate.
The most amazing flowers provided by April Anderson (Loving sister-in-law). All I had to do was give her the colors and she created this (bouquet shown above). Perfect for an Italian theme! Also, she knows sunflowers are my all-time favorite flower in the whole wide world. 🙂 Aren’t I a lucky duck! April even suggested the vase for the flowers to go in. She had this stone looking vase with a cute handle on it. It almost looks like something farmers used to serve fresh milk in. I love it.
April even brought over these tiny guys (shown above), I love her creativity, they completed the table.
I will go into more detail about the menu in my menu post, but for this table I wanted to keep it very simple with a simple font on cream stock paper.
