Fantasy Tablescape

I've had this gorgeous tablescape saved in my favorites for so long, and I just keep coming back to it. Seriously, how can you not fall in love with this? Everything about this table setting is fabulous, from the excessive chandeliers to the sheepskin covered chairs. I've often thought how wonderful it would be to recreate this for my own dinner party someday, and while I'm sure this exact replica would get quite pricey with all those chandeliers, I thought maybe I could throw out some other options to recreate a similar vibe for less.

Chandeliers: If you can't afford several crystal chandeliers, I found an almost equally fabulous option on dress, design, & decor's blog the other day. These quirky pendants are from Habitat, and at only 65 GBP each they are quite a steal. (click here to buy). And of course you can find loads of white candles anywhere to help boost the glow factor (they come in bundles of 5 varying sizes at Ikea for only $1.99 last time I checked).

Sheepskins: Speaking of Ikea, I found these Ludde Sheepskin Rugs for only $39 each, and these would work perfectly thrown over any chair of your choice.

Place settings & silver: You can go with whatever you want here really. I personally have several white plates that I purchased at a restaurant supply store a while back, and they work perfectly for all dinner parties. But using some vintage (or passed down) settings and silver would be really fantastic too!

And one last thing to complete this fantasy tablescape? A couple snips of white roses, good food, and great company. Bon Appetit!


  1. Cute new layout! I love that tablescape.

  2. I absolutely love this, we have very similar taste. Unfortunately, it's not too practical at this time in my life, but I am looking forward to when my kids are a little older and I can host parties with elaborate table settings and exotic foods. About five years from now, I'll give you a call!
