My Other Tables at the Lewiston Tour of Kitchens

Thanks for all of your compliments to the table I showed you as a teaser to the tour here. I hope that anyone local was able to make the tour, and if you did, I'm sure you had a great time! The second house I was asked to set tablescapes for was a beautiful Victorian Mansion on the water, which is currently for sale and can be seen here: http://www.coldwellbankertalarico.com/real-estate/New-York-State-Alliance-MLS/Residential/property/B372320-976-River-Rd-Porter-NY-14174/


Beautiful, right? So I was inspired by the Victorian architecture to build a Victorian themed tablescape in their formal dining room:






I loved the idea of using ferns for the table (as they're tell-tell Victorian) as well as the antique bound books and aged brass candlesticks. Thanks to my blog sponsor: CREATIVE CANDLES for the beautiful 34" taper candles I was able to use on the table. Stay tuned for a giveaway to win a pair of these for yourself! Other fun things: Monogrammed napkins, miniature salt/pepper shakers (Christmas Tree Shoppe), Cross Bottles (on Buffet) made by Me! If you're interested, let me know!

The next space (in the same house) was the breakfast room which the family uses as their primary dining room. I wanted something less fussy than the formal dining room - but still relative to the theme and the architecture - so I chose a Victorian Farmhouse setting with beautiful Buffalo Pottery Blue Willow Dishes:





A special thanks to Novica, who provided me with the beautiful silk scarf, ate grass trays, and a few other goodies I've got tucked up my sleeve for another project. Fun things for this setting: The pottery of course (a steal at $30 from craigslist) the flower arrangement by Linda at Summertime Blooms and the Lewiston area wine glasses (homeowner).

I'm so happy to have shared these with all of you, and thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for letting me link up with her party. If you're interested in anything you see in these pictures, please email me as some items are for sale. See you Sunday with a garden update!
