a french farmhouse tablescape

here we go again!  tablescape #2 from my photo shoot with jasmine star and sweet and saucy!!  this tablescape was featured last week on the amazing blog, snippet + ink...THANK YOU kathryn for the feature!  we are so honored over here!  :)

for this one i went with a french farmhouse theme...i would like to say i was traveling in provence and bought some eclectic finds and was inspired to create this shoot...but to be honest i just went to homegoods and found so many cute things i decided to design an entire table around them!  glamorous yes?  :)


throwing a couple strategically placed pillows into the mix always adds a splash of character to the scene...

the cream colored russian linen and stunning lace overlay were provided by wildflower linens...


baby green artichokes were combined with white peonies, creamy garden roses, olive branches, green wheat and fresh herbs like rosemary and lavender...




the cake....ooooohhhh the cake...one of my favorite cakes ever!  that lace detail is just so beautiful and i love how there is just one white sugar flower to accent...it just goes to show, cakes don't need to be dripping in fresh floral to make an impact...melody really hit it out of the park when she designed this one!


the light jasmine captured in these photos is insane...so fresh, airy and carefree...just as i imagine the french countryside...



here is the scoop on where i purchased everything:

white urns, pitchers and creamers: local thrift stores
rustic stone chickens: homegoods
green and white wrought iron chairs: homegoods
straight edge white metal chairs: ikea
throw pillows: homegoods
scallop edged charger plates: homegoods
glassware: ikea
flatware: crate and barrel

ENJOY!!!

I want to drink sauvignon blanc and eat rosemary chicken at that table and follow it up with a slice of delicious lemon cake. My girlfriends and I could spend hours there...

Can y'all recreate that setting just for us? Kthnxbye.

As always, LOVELY work! I especially love the shabby chic, french, "mix and match" concept with the whole tablescape...Love the artichokes too, I think artichokes are totally the new "in" centerpiece and accessory =)

The more I look at your designs, the more it becomes abundantly evident how talented you are! This is simply gorgeous! I had seen pictures of this wedding floating around the blogosphere, but I had no idea it was one of your creations!

Oh and if you ever do an all white wedding, please let me know! I think that would be stunning!
