It's all in the Details

As beauty is all in the details...I thought I'd better describe my table's composition. In this close-up photo, you can see that I used several dozen bouquets of roses as well as bouquets of Provencal lavender in various sizes. As it was a table top event, I included some stacks of vintage transferware dishes made by Creil & Montereau that have a stunning lavender color. The table is a typical French cast iron garden table but then we put a wooden top on it. In the center is a cement pot in the shape of a flower with chipping paint. Old books (a staple in all my decor), and old French handwritten manuscripts cover the surface of the table. I didn't forget to include a handblown glass demijohn and a majolica cachepot as a champagne bucket. The child-size mannequin was dressed with some lavender wreaths. Oh, and I can't forget to mention my wonderful sage covered bunnies and spheres. Here is a photo from the back side of the table as it was in the center of the room. One last bit of Provence was to add a Biot jar with decoy ducks.
