This weekend my sweet mom turned 65 years old, so we celebrated her by having a birthday dinner at our place. I took a few photos from the table setting I did and thought I could share it here with you, in case you need some tips for your next dinner party..
As it is August I wanted to make it summery, but also with a hint of autumn. As a base I used a grey-beige tablecloth together with white tableware and white linen napkins. Most of the flowers are actually from the garden and are a mix of white, green and burgundy. I put them in small glass vases that I spread around the table. To create a contrast and to avoid making it too formal, I used my black cutlery. I really like how well they go with the dark burgundy flowers (Chocolate cosmos) but also how it makes the table a bit rough. What do you think?
