It’s time to set the table!
I always find it interesting to understand the thought processes of decorators and designers, and to hear what goes through their brains as their creations come to life. How do they troubleshoot and overcome hurdles? I often come away from the experience with a light bulb moment of my own, or something is brought to my attention that I may not have even considered previously. It’s part of my natural curiosity, which has served me well over the years.
To help share my experiences, I have recorded my process for putting together the tablescape that showcases my previously shared Featherington inspired floral table arch. Hanging centerpieces, or hanging table décor, be it via a table arch or otherwise, can sometimes be challenging to compliment on the table top surface.

Truthfully, I like the look without the extra layer of formal elements as well. Just depends on your needs!

There are lots of other ideas that probably could have worked, and I would love to hear your suggestions on what you would have done. My focus was working with as much of what I have more then anything else. If I had a crazy amount of votives, I think they could have been fun on the table as well, but it worked out alright as is.
