Elegant Dinner Party

I love hosting dinner parties and being able to play with my beautiful things to create wonderful settings. This time I wanted to create a dreamy, pearly theme with the colours of blue,cream, white and green.

I used a roll of beautiful blue and pearlised patterned wallpaper down the centre and covered it in a pearly coloured organza.

My centrepiece was white roses and chrissies (fresh of course) with a hint of green. The green glasses added more green, creating contrast.

The pearl entwined napkin rings I've had for a long time and together with the mother of pearl shells, added to the pearly colour scheme. The finnishing touch was the silver candlesticks and tealight holders.

Easter Vignettes

Is there a better time to display eggs in the kitchen?

I just love the magic of birds eggs

And I had to have these blue ones!

Together with the autumn flush of roses

Happy Easter!
