Inspirational Centerpiece Tablescape. . .

Recently On Crooked Creektt,
I had a vision of an elegant centerpiece embedded within my mind.

 Inspirational Centerpiece Tutorial (here).

Several nights, as I re~read Carolyn Westbrook's 
Through The French Door 
Romantic interiors inspired by classic French style,
I became inspired to re~create the featured 
Town and Country dining room centerpiece and tablescape. 

Town and Country On Crooked Creektt is not!
I have a Traditional decor with a hint of French Country
in the galley kitchen and petite dining room.

I adored the reflections of the gleaming glass and crystal
combined with vintage silver and glass salt and pepper shakers
and serving spoons.

Opposites, yet similar. . .
The books version is a dramatic charcoal~gray.
While mine is a pristine, light and bright, white 
monochromatic color scheme.

My greatest challenge for this tablescape were scale and dimension.

Using what I already have,
and purchasing a few vintage silver serving spoons and forks
from our local Roadhouse Antiques and Gifts,
I am quite pleased with this elegantly romantic tablescape.

Until next time. . .
