Tablescape Thursday..my peonies are blooming!



This table setting is great for an afternoon soiree. A light snack of crackers, cookies, and fresh fruit like red and green grapes, blueberries, raspberries and scrumptious strawberries....can you say HEAVENLY?

We will have some champagne in these tall fluted glasses to bring out the sweetness of the summer fruit. White dinnerware is set atop bronze chargers and sandwiched between red napkins.

Small metallic bowls are filled with spongy green reindeer moss followed by a luscious pink peony bloom, all which is nestled under
a tall glass cloche.

The final touch is the gorgeous centerpiece filled with blue hydrangeas, peonies, and late blooming lilacs.

I have looked everywhere for the individual cloches. Where did you find them? Your table is beautiful with all the flowers!

This is such a beautiful table!! The fruit looks so fresh and pretty the way you have it arranged and your dishes and chargers are so pretty. But I will tell you that your moss and peonies under the glass domes are the star of this show!! These should be on the cover of Better Homes and Gardens. Wow! Need to remember this idea!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Hi! Thanks for joining my blog! I know this has nothing to do with your most recent post BUT the brownies on your header look sooooo yummy! SO much so that I am making a trip to Costco tonight to pick up a box of the Ghiradelli brownie mix and I even think I am going to add the icing on top just like yours!LOL! OMG! I think I am hungry! Anywho, love your blog and your tablescapes...look forward to getting to "know" you...be blessed.

I sell some cloches very similar to these in my giftshop. They are $21 I believe. Let me know if you want one or two. Also I have several sizes available in different price ranges.
