Using colorful table decor inspired by nature is the perfect place to start. This floral tablecloth and matching set of napkins are my go-to for a garden party. I couldn’t find the exact match to my tablecloth, but this one is so pretty, and the cloth napkins to match.

I used a cabbage leaf placemat as a base for the place setting. And, of course, I love my Cabbage plates. I used a green cabbage plate charger, topped with a floral dinner plate, and a white cabbage salad plate.

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.
