Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic


Written by Patti on April 28th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

Eric informed me that we are now at blog post 201! So exciting.

I thought I would celebrate by posting some of my favorite tablescapes designed by others. Enjoy!

Since Preston Bailey’s website is so fabulous, I want you to see it all… here for the most gorgeous tablescapes ever. He is my design hero!

And Colin Cowie is always coming up with the most fantastic ideas on a shoestring budget. Take a look at a few of his creations:

Isn't This The Sweetest Idea? Love it!

Now Is The Time To Start Using Those Flowers From The Garden

How Easy Would This Be? And Stunning!

And from the Dinner Party Planning Site, comes this lovely red and white tablescape – so doable!

Red and White Always Looks So Fresh

Check out this adorable table setting from the blog Draw, Christina, Draw. How cute and easy is this?  Sometimes you just need to view with fresh eyes.

For a Formal Dinner, You Could Use All Black And White

Over at My Home Ideas, they came up with this lovely spring table. Love it!

I Love A Table Set With Abundance (the pink & green is my fave, too!)

So there you go, my darlings! A little love letter of beauty from me to you.

xoxo, Patti
