Blush and Bashful Tablescape

April 19, 2021

Happy #tablescapetuesday , y’all! Today’s tablescape features one of Sarah and I’s favorite shades of pink, blush! I can’t think or say the word blush without hearing Shelby from Steel Magnolias saying, “my colors will be blush and bashful”….anyone else? So, let’s break down this blush on blush tablescape.

The tablecloth is a darling thrift find. It is the most subtle shade of blush with a barely-there pattern on top and has a cute scalloped edge. Couldn’t pass it up! Another thrift find are the pink floral candle holders, which, to be honest, I’m not sure if that’s actually their given purpose but it works. I just think they are so special.

To break up all of the blush, we tied in some natural elements with our favorite scalloped rattan chargers, trusty bamboo flatware, iraca napkin rings, and a bamboo bud vase. I have to give the bud vase a special shout out because it’s the easiest way to incorporate florals to a tablescape. I love it and I’m sure this won’t be the last time it makes an appearance.

And for the show stopper – custom embroidered napkins from Charleston Cotton. Jill with Charleston Cotton I’m convinced, can do no wrong when it comes to embroidery. She does it all and the precious pink monogram on these napkins makes me swoon. I just sent her a picture of the tablecloth and this is what she came up with, they’re perfect! Of course if you want to be more hands on you can design your own but I knew she would get it right, because she always does!

Lastly- our dresses. I am completely smitten with this floral silk number I am wearing by Hannah Artwear. It’s hand blocked in India and it’s one size, so the fit is beautiful. You can remove the tie so it looks more caftan style which is also chic as can be. Sarah is wearing the cutest dress from Tuckernuck. I love the easy silhouette with the flutter sleeve detail and that deep emerald green embroidery compliments the peachy-pink shade just perfectly.
