Tablescape Inspiration in shades of Purple


J'adore purple! There is a sophistication to purple that allows you to have a very chic tablescape with just simple details.... and you have a perfect excuse to have a fabulous lilac flower bouquet!!!

I have my regular table clothes but when it comes to setting a special table in a different hue I just buy a piece of fabric (usually at Anna's Linnen) and glue the edges. You can also use the same fabric for your napkins (I love it because it gives a more cohesive look..and you end up saving money). Here is a tutorial for no-sew DYI napkins... it's so simple once you get use to it, you are going to make napkins in all colors & materials! If you keep the table cloth and napkins in the same color and material is much easier to play with different plates in different colors and still get a very chic spring tablescape!

...and of course don't forget the champagne!

What a fabulous spot for a dinner party. ROund tables are my favorite, everyone can see one another and really visit! The lilacs are beautiful.

The shot with the champagne is perfect! I'm also inspired to make DIY napkins (will have to wait till I'm back in NY to find fabric though!)
