GOODIES - Sorbet Décor

Saturday, July 4, 2015

soft pastels

One of my favourite combos for home décor is to decorate in neutrals and greys and then have a few decorative pieces in a pastel colour. That way it still has a bit of feminine touch with being too "girly" - like these new sorbet coloured vases that we have available in pastel pink, mint green and bright yellow.

GOOD PLAN - A Knight's Table

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

knights of the round table

For our Knight's Tale table décor, we set up one large banquet table with wooden chairs. You may also like to use benches, and a round table would be the ultimate! If your table is wooden you may want to leave it bear or as ours was metal we covered it in hessian. Echo the surface in your arrangements by filling silver lace edged glass votives with little bushels of wheat.

Burnished silver vases and pitchers found in flea markets filled with a few burgundy flower heads make for a fine arrangement. Furthermore, lengths of ivy trailing down the table centre or around the chairs are any easy and inexpensive addition. 

Be sure to dim the overhead lights, and the warm glow from antique candelabras, candleholders and votives will easily recreate the banquet and ballrooms of days of old. Make custom candle votives by printing out this paper lampshade and placing over a wine glass with a lit tea light inside.

With a touch of gold spray paint transform plastic fruit and trinkets into treasure. Display these on tiered silver tea trays amoung real red grapes and miniature bread rolls. At each place setting set a gold charger plate and as far as possible go for gold (paper) plates, cutlery and napkins.

These party ideas come from our book For Good Times. Get the complete party plan, as well as 11 other great party themes here. Plus, all the free printables!

GOOD PLAN - A Knight's Tale Table Ideas

linen and lace

For our Knight's Table, we decided to deck the table in wheat coloured runners made from hessian. The advantage being that these can easily be made as no sewing is required and are relatively inexpensive compared to other fabrics. Plus: the look is well suited to our other party themes: Cowboy, Pony, Pow Wow and any casual or vintage birthday or even wedding. We love this look so much that also we now sell these runners in our shop.
