Natural tablescapes

As Heather mentioned HERE in her post on Century Furniture, their showroom at High Point really had the best tabletop displays which rivaled a magazine spread. I loved this tablescape which featured antique books on an beautiful wood table alongside a terranium and a dome filled with even more books topped off by a bird's next. Nature, spring and books -what could be better? Have a great weekend and here's to bringing nature inside!

I like the picture, but I have a hard time hearing the word "tablescape" without thinking of Sandra Lee's dreadful semi-homemade show.

This is lovely with the warm tones of wood and books. It gives the interior a feeling that life is lived in the space and interests are pursued....an atmosphere all too often absent in many homes.

Have a wonderful weekend, Stefan! I hope spring has arrived in all its D.C. glory!

Napoleon the puggle is way ahead of us on the topic of bringing nature inside! I will try to get photos next time! His paws aren't so cute when covered in mud, though!

Nothing beats a little touch of live greenery in an interesting container, does it?

Terrariums sure have come a long way from the homemade variety populat in the '70s. I have been waiting to plant a series of glass containers with grass on my kitchen table. I think the combo of mellowed wood and bright, fresh green is marvelous.

This is especially creative and natural at the same time. As I think to myself can I use my oversized flour jar to grow plants as shown.

Stefan, the last time I had a terrarium I was 7 but you're inspiring me to do a grown up version :)

Glad you enjoyed your trip.
