Welcome to the 157th Tablescape Thursday!
You may feel like Bill Murray in the movie, Groundhog Day as you view the following tablescape. In last week’s Tablescape Thursday post, I mentioned I had created a tablescape on the porch and it somehow mysteriously moved itself right out on to the deck, turning into this romantic table setting.
This romantic table would be great for a Valentine’s Day celebration.
Since I used my Modern Butterfly dishware, a butterfly napkin fold worked great for this setting.
The candles are surrounded with red geranium blossoms.
If you saw last week’s table settting, this one is looking a bit familiar, isn’t it? The chargers are different but the rest of the place setting is the same as the place setting from last week’s romantic tablescape for two.
I’ll post the directions for this butterfly napkin fold on either Friday or Saturday. This has fast become one of my favorite folds of all time. It really works well with this beautiful butterfly themed china.
Update: Find the Butterfly Napkin fold here: Butterfly Napkin Fold Tutorial.
The red flowers and stemware really pull out the red in the Modern Butterfly china.
The butterfly votive holders are perfect with this pattern.
Last week we peeked through this geranium to view our tablescape on the deck.
This week its blossoms surround the candles in our centerpiece. I had already snipped all the flowers before I took this photo above. This little geranium has been blessing me with a bounty of blooms all summer long. Centerpiece was easy to make by placing the geranium blossoms around the base of the candles.
A view at nightime…
The Blue Hour approaches…
You can tell when the Blue Hour is near because the white deck takes on a slightly eerie glow/look. Time to grab the camera to capture some blue hour pics.
The Blue Hour is here! You can read all about the Blue Hour and find out when it arrives in your area here: Blue Hour
Looking forward to viewing all the beautiful table settings posted for this Tablescape Thursday!
