Thank you so much to everyone who visited us at Tabletop Weekend this year! Even if you couldn’t make it in, the kind words online meant a lot to both me and the visual team who worked hard getting the gorgeous displays up and ready! Creating a tablescape is no easy feat! With all the options in material, size, color and on and on – it’s easy to get lost in the process. I know how blessed I am to have an amazing team beside me to help design these fabulous tablescapes. This week I want to highlight some of the displays from the event that we all got to enjoy in the shop. I hope that this inspires you to step outside of your comfort zone and take your tabletop to the next level!
Classic Blue and White
You can never go wrong with a classic blue and white tablescape! This combo is not only one of my favorites, but also a pairing for which Nell Hill’s is well known. Blue and white is a traditional and timeless look that can be adjusted for any season. Green topiaries add a touch of freshness and height to draw the eye upwards (and towards your no-doubt gorgeous centerpiece).
This tomato centric setup brings to memory hot hazy days in August when the garden is bursting with goodies! The layers of color and patterns make for a fun, festive and surprisingly complex-looking setting. Reminiscent of a summer picnic setup with accents of red buffalo check, this look is sure to be a show stopper at your next seasonal gathering.
Tropical Tea Time
A little behind the scenes information on this fabulous setting. On the morning of tabletop weekend, we could NOT find the perfect tablecloth to compliment the delicate and regal pink rose settings. Luckily, one of our amazing fabric magicians upstairs found the gorgeous palm leaf print you see here and was able to create this masterpiece before the event! I love the juxtaposition between the elegant gold accents with the whimsy of the Dana Gibson ginger jar and fun red chairs. Mixing together different styles creates a unique and relaxed setting that still has all the glamour and sophistication you would want at a tea party.
Fresh, juicy, and bright – this is one of my favorite summer settings! Yellow is on trend and it is the perfect time to start collecting your favorite hue. Our team was inspired for this setting by the beauty of lemon trees, which are an enduring symbol for freshness and healing. This tablescape is a breath of fresh air for any space.
Antique dishes are a beautiful and unique addition to any table. These place settings featuring flowers in warm hues of yellow, red and orange are great transitional pieces that look amazing in spring, summer and fall. We added spring accents like the adorable frog pitcher and individual honey pots at each setting to add even more personality and texture to the design.
Day at the Lake
Here in the Midwest we love lake time. The sound of water against the dock and a light breeze blowing back your hair – that’s the inspiration behind this beautiful setting. Elegant outdoors is an aesthetic all its own! The woodsy tones, wildlife accents, and natural elements bring a refined rustic feel to the tablescape that guests will both enjoy!
I hope you found inspiration for your own home by viewing some of our tablescapes! I will be sharing even more on our Instagram and Facebook pages so be sure to follow along! Please share any themes you would love to see in upcoming displays in the comments – we love to be challenged! As always, we love to see your own creations so please share and keep the inspiration going!
