I've always found laying the table a relaxing activity. When I lived at home it soon became tradition that I would lay the table before dinner (hey, it got me outta the washing up!) and as I grew older - and discovered my interest for interiors - I began experimenting with tablescape designs. In the lead up to Christmas I would gather left over baubles and ribbons and for birthdays I would hunt for seasonal pieces, all of which I would use to compliment our existing tabletop pieces. With a change in seasons just weeks away, I thought I'd pull together inspiration for a trans-seasonal tablescape: the saturated, nautical blues of high summer have been swapped out for washed-out navy hues and fall-like, harvest-inspired textures replace silky linens - the perfect table for the final alfresco dinners of the year. What are your weekend plans, folks?
