vegetable tablescape

Looking for a fun way to decorate the dinner table...you all know I'm all about the flowers....but,  why not incorparte a few veggies in the mix!  Everytime I'm at Whole Foods, I get drawn into all the gorgeous vegetables...not to buy them to cook, but to decorate with them and the cool thing about it, the vegetables and the flowers are side-by-side at our Whole Foods...great marketing on their part!

Well, I finally got a chance to put together a "Veggie Tablescape" with the help of stylist, Dana FitzGerald and photographer, Emme Wynn.  The florals + veggies cost around $45.00....and no need to buy new linens and tablesettings....use what you have in your home...I'm sure you'll be surprised at the beautiful pieces you've collected and have totally forgotten about them.  Mixing vegetables with florals are certainly eco-friendly and you can always reuse some of the veggies the next day!

Let's check out all the veggies on the table...Enjoy!

Tuesday, March, 27, 2012  |  Weddings

There are so many gorgeous venues in California and Jess & Eddy choose to have their wedding take place at Cornerstone Garden in Sonoma, California. Cornerstone is incredibly gorgeous and already picturesque, so there is never any need to go over the top with decor.  The art gallery gardens are so much fun to explore with the bride and groom  and make for some unique couple portraits. 

Capturing Jess & Eddy's beautiful wedding story is one of my favorite photographers, Caroline,  of Tinywater Photography.....Caroline's work is always "picture perfect" and I love it when she stops by the cafe....let's check out all the gorgeous images she is sharing with us today...Enjoy!!
