Welcome to the 339th Tablescape Thursday!
Recently, Elena put together a “Beauty and the Beast” princess birthday party for her daughter, Susanna. Elena said, “Even though she’s 27 years old, she will always be (to me) my beautiful Belle, my favorite Disney princess.” The table Elena put together would be great for any Beauty and the Beast fan, no matter the age.
Elena placed a pretty pink rosette runner down the center of the table as a backdrop for her centerpiece.
In this vignette, beautiful Belle is seen reading a book while Mrs. Potts and Chip are nearby.
Elena decorated simple glass votives with David Tutera crystal ribbon found in Joann Fabrics. I had no idea they made crystal ribbon. That could come in handy for making elegant napkin rings!
Belle twirls her gown with Cogsworth and Lumiere nearby.
A sweet centerpiece for this Beauty and the Beast tablescape…
Elena said, “In order to really go all-out with the Disney Beauty and the Beast theme, I ended up having to use paper and plastic party goods. I really don’t like using paper and plastic, but I think I was able to blend the place settings fairly well with some of the more ornate glass, porcelain and bejeweled decorations.”
This birthday table setting shows you don’t always have to use expensive china to create a beautiful table. Often we already have lovely collectibles or special pieces that can be used to create a wonderful centerpiece. I love Elena’s creativity in putting this table together!
Elena decorated the room with pink tissue flowers and banners she made by hand.
Such a gorgeous cake! Elena surrounded the cake with more crystal ribbon and topped the cake with a beautiful Swarovsky crystal crown. Wow! So elegant!
I really like the idea of placing the writing on the side of the cake because it leaves plenty of room to decorate the top. Filing this idea away for the future!
Elena, thanks so much for sharing this wonderful table setting! This makes me want to throw a party and decorate right now!

Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
Please do not link up table settings that were just recently shared in the last few weeks for Tablescape Thursday.
