See what I mean? Isn’t this the prettiest tablescape?

Every time that I go to the local flower market, I lose control and I end up coming home with a carload of flowers.

I love the mix of all the citrus with the flowers.

I have been wanting to do a tablescape using citrus, it just feels so refreshing to me. I knew that I wanted to use lemons, kumquats and grapefruit. I decided to use colors from these fruits-yellow, orange, peach and pink. The picture above was a happy accident. The stacked were napkins on this chair while waiting their turn setting the table. An assortment of peach and pink cloth napkins were used.

I used two of my vintage silver three tiered trays with the floral arrangements near the middle of the table, I added vintage crystal candlesticks in the center of the table. Two vintage silver candelabra were put nearer to the ends of the table. Then a “garland’ was created with greenery and fruit. I used pink/peach roses, pink and yellow cottage roses, Freesia, peach, orange and yellow Ranunculus, Hypericum, Italian Ruscus, white Hawthorne, pink/peach Stock. It is a wonderful combination.

I love this time of year when the wisteria is blooming. It’s just magical. I love how it drapes so beautifully.

I used silver chargers, gold rimmed dinnerware and topped it with a peach colored linen napkins.

I have two identical vintage silver three teired trays to arrange the citrus and florals. Watch the video above to see how I made the citrus and floral arrangement. Two of my favorite tricks to keep flowers fresh longer are to dip the stems in Quick Dip, then to spray the entire arrangement with Crowning Glory. Both are floral preservers. The Crowning Glory even adds a bit of a sheen to the flowers.

I just love how this turned out, it’s perfect for a outdoor dinner with friends and family.

Our dining pavillion seats sixteen to twenty people comfortably and it’s a wonderful place to dine outdoors, even when it’s chilly outside, as we installed heaters in the eaves.

When I was designing my vegetable and flower garden, I knew that I had to remove a very large tree that was right in the middle of my new garden spot. We had the tree milled and we built this table out of it. The table is 20′ x 5′.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
