We have only seen the sun a couple times in the last few weeks...I don't function well without it.
I wanted to do a bright table, but not too bright. I can always depend on the cobalt Artland Iris to provide brightness on the table!
I started with a cotton striped tablecloth in oatmeal/blue. I used blue gingham napkins in a lotus flower fold so I could put the soup bowl in it.
I started the setting with a woven charger, oatmeal dinner plate, unknown who the maker is, a blue BP cabbage salad plate and soup bowl.
The glassware is Artland Iris and the stainless flatware is International, I don't know the pattern.
The centerpiece is a collection of Iittal Festivo candlesticks. They were made by Finnish artist Timo Sarpaneva. The candlesticks are circa 1967. They have 1-8 rings. I have all except the 7-ringed one. The candles are round, apparently made specifically for these candlesticks. They are perfect for a winter tablescape as they kind of look like ice. I am sure you will find them in future tablescapes! I first saw these candlesticks on Tanya's blog Dans le Lakehouse and fell in love with them...and her kitchen!
Thanks for visiting today, hope you will find the time to come back next time.
