Living in the Pacific Northwest is definitely my favorite. Every time I venture into our gorgeous forests, I can’t help but be inspired. This month’s tablescape is inspired by the forest floor of the PNW — full of foraged foliage (did you see yesterday’s centerpiece tutorial??), ferns, and many, many shades of earthy green. With a setting of rumpled, layered linen, the vibe is casual, pretty, and unexpectedly romantic.
I’ve been so obsessed with shades of green lately, which funny because so much in my home is blue! But it still vibes really nicely. As soon as I saw Sarah’s ikebana inspired centerpiece, I decided on a layered look for the tablescape with tons of mixed materials: woodgrain, pressed glass, green glass, antique silver, rumpled linen, and galvanized steel. Layered… sort of like the PNW forest floor!
To start, I layered a natural linen runner on top of a white linen tablecloth and placed the centerpiece in the middle. Chargers lend a really fancy vibe to any tablescape and I’ve been dying to use these wood veneered chargers, so on they went! I loved how these pressed glass dinner plates looked layered on top — the subtle pattern really lends a soft and pretty vibe don’t you think?
Also, I love mixing glassware, so I added in gorgeous smokey-green glass tumblers, plus simple small juice glasses in place of wineglasses for a more casual look. Sipping wine out of a small juice glass always makes me feel so… European!
I’ve been working on my napkin folding skills, can you tell? To fold your napkin like this, fold it into thirds lengthwise, then fold in half. Then fold in half width-wise and tuck into a napkin ring.
I love the additional texture that these galvanized napkin rings add to my tablescape. Simply tuck in vintage flatware and a fern to finish off the look!
I’m so obsessed with how this tablescape turned out. I swear, I say this every time…. but this is my favorite one yet!
