Paper whites are an inspiring way to start 2021 , I'm always inspired by what flowers are in season and available locally, so after the Holiday decor was finally taken down, I was looking for something fresh and easy !
To create this tablescape I layered some vintage white linen placemats over a matching table runner, then I added some simple gold bordered antique plates and my simple everyday flatware. Next came the glassware, I used some victorian opalescent swirl tumblers for water and some vintage Swedish etched goblets for wine. Then I added some vintage opaline glass salt and pepper little bowls.
So after I have all of the functioning parts of the table in place I add the more decorative parts , I used my favorite candle bowl as a centrepiece and some white votives in vintage pewter cups. Then I added the paper whites, I used three vases and cut them and just casually put them in a row. Then lastly I added the napkins, I always do this last as I feel that napkins should be the freshest part of a table !
