  1. Oh so clever and OH SO BEAUTIFUL!!

  2. Beautiful set table. However casual you were being I would have taken the time to present the design on a pressed tablecloth instead of one that looked like you left it in the dryer to long.

  3. Love this look and everything about it! I have a similar white heavy linen ruffled tablecloth. I think the casual beauty of natural linen includes a little wrinkling!
    Alice, you should probably stick with cotton or a linen/cotton blend that could provide you with more wrinkle control.

    1. Thanks so much, and I completely agree, Ginger! As you know from my newsletter post from a few weeks ago, I’m crushing on laundered linen big time. Ironing it would ruin the intended look. I fully understand it’s not for everyone, but the suggestion that I just didn’t “take the time” to iron it is kind of amusing, given how many hours these tables take to do… šŸ˜‰

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!! Of course, the peonies take center stage with me. I think you did an amazing job with this. I don’t think if I had a million years I could come up with something this enticing. You definitely have a gift and I thank you for sharing it with us.

  5. Love the rumpled look of fresh linen Lory and often do this intentionally myself! Those new plates from Amara are perfect for your style!

    What a snappy table! I would have never thought of mixing such traditional china with the fun animal print but I really like it! Especially love the glasses! I rarely ‘set’ a ‘fancy’ table so never really had an interest in this sort of thing, but i must tell you, since I found your blog I may have to start! And I think I may just have to start with those glasses! What fun! Thanks for sharing and the inspiration!

    1. Thank you, Joanne! It’s funny – I have no idea where my interest in table settings came from, but once you start, it really becomes a joy to do… šŸ™‚

    Oh so gorgeous and love the table setting

  8. How did I miss this wonderful table last year??? It’s gorgeous! I’ve seen you use those napkins in other tables, and they always look fabulous! So pretty! And then, here, you paired them with those wonderful leather napkin rings! I just spotted them on sale at WS and ordered them! I haven’t had a chance to use them yet, and I was thinking that I’d use them in the Fall, with Autumn colors. Yet here you are, using them in the Spring with such a soft, pretty palette, and they just work! You’ve got this male/female, romantic/modern, yin/yang thing going on and it put a smile on my face. Love it! You have shown us again and again that a good purchase will stand the test of seasons and time. So nice! And, btw, you are not kidding about how long it takes to put together a lovely table! But so worth it!

    love the tablecloth, looked it up right away and seems to be sold out. Will keep looking. So funny that someone wanted it ironed. It’s beautiful just the way it is.
