I had the 3 vases of roses for a bit with the canvas table runner . At Christmas I put the leaf in my table and never took it out, I liked the table with a larger presence. But now the table runner looked too short. So I bought a very pretty linen runner in the color of my chairs, but it was blah, so I went back to the canvas and changed to all white vases, this look didn't last long. It looked pretty in a magazine but I felt like my vases were at a store on a conveyer belt, too much of a good thing, especially with my hutch of all white dishes on one side.
My new tablescape is turquoise and gold just the pop I was looking for. I first cut a piece of canvas just a couple inches shorter than the table. I copied the other table runner that I had bought at West Elm. Stitching around all the sides with my sewing machine about 1/2" from edge. Painted it with a coat of gesso, then a coat of gold paint. Placed the wooden ombre vases back on the table with two turquoise vases. I added five turquoise flowers and one orange flower bought on Etsy a while back, to each vase.
Whenever I decide to rearrange something I always start with what is around my home. But this always leads to a snowball effect. Now I need to tweak the family room and front entry a bit. Which will probably spill over into the bedrooms.
Just when I think it is perfect another idea is born and around I go again.
