We’ve been asked by a number of designers to help with their centerpieces for the upcoming Red & White Ball benefiting the Greenwich chapter of the American Red Cross.  Since we just created beautiful springtime table settings at Gracious Home, we thought we could be inspired by these.

    I love seeing different patterns and colors for place settings…it makes it so vibrant and beautiful. Of course, having beautiful flowers like the ones above always helps too :)!

    Gosh, that yours truly takes such lovely photos! Love the idea of wicker placemats and melamine mixed in, all seems very spring time fresh to me!

    These are all just beautiful. I love to have a dinner party and design my table different every time. Usually casual and chic is what I go for in warm weather! Hope you are well.

    My favorite vignette is the one with peach/orangy roses with the weaved charger. The colors look both traditional and bohemian. I love that!

    I love the blue and yellow, but I’m such a fan of purple, that has to be the winner for me!
    Many thanks for stopping by my place and following.
