  1. Beautiful as expected. love the pear tie in and your colors and shapes are displayed beautifully. Such a classy and sophisticated table setting. Anyone would be honored to sit at your table.

  2. Absolutely exquisite in every detail! Love your color combination, accents…….everything. Bravo!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  3. Wow, wonderful tablescape! I am loving the detail and the thought put into it….and those candles are stunning!

  4. I love to use unusual things too Lory, but I don’t think I’d be brave enough to lay a gorgeous pashmina on my table top for potential spills! It looks incredible though, the colors are just dreamy~and I love all the texture contrasts and the low line of square candles and your beautiful flowers…

  5. Lovely. The candles and the pears and all of the layers of textures add a lot of personality to the table. Very nice!

  6. A very stunning table full of beautiful pieces. Your talented use of the white plates grounded with the dark chargers and topped with the iridescent spring green bowl and pear candle creates a calm and serene setting. The frog napkin ring is the perfect touch of whimsey, bringing a smile. I love it. Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment on my blog.

  7. Elegant and beautiful! Love the coloring and how you captured the light. The flowers are perfection and I love the napkins with the frog! The silverware is so pretty and I like the candle centerpiece. Lucky friends to have set at this beautiful table!

  8. Wow, what a treat for your friends! This is such and elegant setting! I love each element, especially those pear shaped candles! Just lovely!!

  9. I absolutely love this table! Love the shade of purple in the pashmina (that was very brave of you, because it’s really lovely), the iridescent bowls and napkins, the square vases with the floating candles . . . I saw those frog napkin rings at PB and just walked right past them. Now I’m sorry I didn’t pick them up! You’ve introduced a lot of different elements on this table, and yet, it doesn’t seem overcrowded. This is truly beautiful! Thank you for the inspiration!

    1. Thank you so much, Maria! Those napkin rings were actually bought specifically for another setting which I will feature shortly, but I’m using them a lot now… πŸ™‚

  10. Lory ~
    What a beautiful table and wonderful website. I just stopped by for the first time today and it is now one of my new favorites! You are a girl after my own heart with your lovely creations!

    1. Debi, I appreciate your comment so much! My blog is only about 6 weeks old, so I’m delighted to have people finding it and enjoying it… πŸ™‚

  11. What a pretty, pretty table. I especially like your little frog napkin holders. To me, they go with the green so well, with real frogs being green, and all, and they are just an unexpected little surprise tucked around the napkins. Why not use a pashmina? They wash! If the color is what you need, go for it!

    1. Exactly my thoughts, Chloe!! Thanks for the kind words. Those frogs were actually bought for another setting you will see soon, but they worked for this spring setting too… πŸ˜‰

  12. the colors in this table are beyond words to describe. It looks so inviting yet so serene and calming just stunning great blends of everything thank you for such beauty.Susie

  13. Such simple elegance. Every inch of this table is stunning. laurie

  14. What a stunning table – I love everything, but what really caught my eye was the gorgeous fabric on your chairs!! I am new to your blog and enjoyed reading about St Tropez…I am heading to the Mediterranean in the fall and so anxious to take it all in. Your photos are just fabulous – I imagine you have an expensive camera because the photos just “pulled me in”! Off to read more on your blog!!

    1. Thank you so much for your comment! I’m so grateful that you are enjoying and took the time to tell me. I’m so jealous that you are going to the Mediterranean in the fall – it’s my favorite region!! You will find many more posts in the upcoming weeks of my last few trips to Italy and France… πŸ™‚

  15. Beautiful color palette…perfect for the spring feel you were going for! Love the flowers and all the pastels.

  16. Lavender and green, so perfect for spring! The pashima scarf is very pretty indeed but I even loved the contrast of the beige weave underneath. I also really like the two rows of square clear votives down the center as well. Beautiful flowers and settings all the way around!

    1. Thank you so much, Mary! This one is a little different for me because there are really no patterns, but I let the color tell the story. Glad it resonated with you… πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!!

  17. Stunning and elegant! Gorgeous flowers. Love the pashmina, pear candles,elegant napkins and cute napkin ring. Your centerpiece is very creative. You are a great designer.
    I would love to know where you found your napkins.

    1. Thanks so much, Bonnie! The sheer green napkin that’s placed over the white one is from Pier 1. I have them in several colors because I love the sheen they offer as well as the ability to see another color underneath, whether it be white, or another color to mix with the layer on top. Thanks for visiting!!

    Lory, your tablescapes are amongst the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. You should share all you’ve posted and some new ones in a coffee table book.

    1. Thank you so much, Patricia, and it’s funny, because that’s exactly what I have in mind… πŸ˜‰ Wish me luck!!
