Funds raised at this silent auction go towards fighting aids, and the auction lots consist of wine dinners for six at top area restaurants. Each dinner to bid on is displayed via a tablescape created by a local designer. Tablescapes are my very favorite thing ever.
Here’s one perfect for this season… love the paisley/purple/pumpkin combo!
I loved this tablescape for a wine dinner at Bastille. This restaurant has a garden on its roof, so it’s fitting that the tablescape has a mini herb garden in the middle.
Greek keys are among my fave design elements right now. Here’s an Greek-inspired Asian tablescape…? Note the fun fur pillows at each seat:
And the pièce de résistance (in my opinion, anyway):
Check out these wood chargers with gold metallic sides!!
And the moss balls as a centerpiece and chandelier – AMAZEballs, is what they are:
It was a very inspiring event all around. What tablescapes are inspiring you right now? I want to see your links and pics! Do you have a picture of the tablescape you’re most proud of? Let’s all just copy each other. 🙂
The only thing that improved this uncharacteristically stormy week in Seattle was the excuse to debut my fall bag a few weeks early. My summer bag (a raffia tote) is simply not practical in the rain. Therefore, new bag:
I love fall and back-to-school season. While growing up, I would spend my summers obsessively planning out what new school clothes I wanted and then once I had them, what outfits I would wear. I got the deepest pleasure from hand-selecting each and every school supply, and organizing them in to my backpack, taking into account convenience and of course, cuteness (for instance, in 9th grade my best friend and I got matching lime green label-makers). And that sweet day when you finally got to use all your new stuff? Almost as serendipitous as Christmas. Back to school is a Type A personality’s dream. In my adulthood, I no longer go back to school, but I have an apartment to decorate and people to cook for. It just never ends! I love it.
Lately I’ve been seeing Harvest/Fall/Autumn Bucket Lists on Pinterest, and I feel inspired to create my own to get in the spirit of the season. It’s not the most “family friendly” list, as there are no pumpkin patches or stomping through crisp leaves, but bear with me.
What do you think of the list? Any blaring omissions? I will be working my way through these tasks until I lose interest and start obsessing over the holidays instead, and charting my progress on this blog along the way.
