A Simple Table-Scape


Today I wanted to share a simple table-scape that I’ve put together on my kitchen table. Over the past 5 months, I’ve been posting on the flower box that I had decorated in various ways. Though the box was very pretty and a great decorating tool, I needed to change things up for the winter and decided not to use it at this time. I needed something different!
I left my chandelier over the table decorated from Christmas. The black and white check ribbon looks so pretty, I didn’t want to take it down. Not just yet! I designed the tablescape to reflect the design in the light.



I used faux green hydrangeas for my design and placed them in a galvanized container. (The container is actually a stand for a beverage dispenser I have.) The dispenser did not sit on the stand properly, so I re-purposed it for flower arrangements. It worked perfectly! I tied a black and white check bow around the base of the container to give it more pizazz.


Pretty green roses, with a hint of pink around the edges, compliment the hydrangeas. The mix of real with faux flowers, makes it hard to tell the difference between the two. I used a tall pitcher for the roses to give the design some height. Small plates hold a glass jar with a tea light in it. My lovely chicken tureen gives the table a touch of country look.


A white tray holds a tea pot and a cup and saucer that sits on top of a stack of small white tidbit dishes. The cup and saucer’s black and white check pattern matches the ribbon I used on the chandelier, galvanized container and tea pot. This gives a uniform look to the design and balances the elements together. Two small pitchers complete the design and fills the empty space between the hydrangea arrangement and tray.
You can use anything to decorate your table. It doesn’t have to be for a specific use or occasion. I used different elements that compliment each other in a fashionable way. Even though I’m not using the dishes or tureen right now, they fit in nicely to the design on my table. If I had used the hydrangea arrangement alone on the table, the table would look a little bare. Don’t be afraid to expand your centerpieces out, just as long as the table remains functional.


I hope you enjoyed A Simple Table-Scape post today!

  1. Beautiful and so inviting, LuAnn! Your serving pieces and dishes are sooo pretty, too. The hydrangeas look real; know what you mean about mixing the faux with the real thing…it does fool the eye. I love how you add touches of ribbon and cute little birdies to your vignettes…a nice touch of whimsy that’s also lovely.

    1. Hi Bobbi! I think the check ribbon is eye candy for my kitchen design. I love how the ribbon works with the decor on my chandelier and table. I especially love the gold backing on the ribbon! I have another post coming up soon on my kitchen island… it will have more of the check ribbon design in it. I’m happy you enjoyed my post! I always appreciate your lovely comments!
