Black and White Tablescape "French Style" Napkin Ring Giveaway!

By Karin Brosnan - Thursday, April 15, 2010

"French Style" Tablescape dedicated to my mom she loves all things French!
Napkin Ring Giveaway information is at the bottom of this post.
Here we are looking through one of my black chairs at the the tablescape :)
ooooh lets get in closer shall we? Black and White with a little punch of hot pink!
The tablecloth is fabric from Walmart!
I like using unusual things like frames on the table.
Le Poulet (The Chicken).
I used my white dinner plates from Ikea once again and my black and white "Toile" plates on top. (Toile means cloth)
Notice my white napkins spruced with my pink napkin rings!
Do you love or what!
Again I am using my dollar store finds! These little black tea-light holders are fabulous on any table..remember I also used them in Beachy tablescape HERE
I snatched a couple of buds off my beautiful flowering bush (I can't remember the name of it) and placed one in each of these darling juice glasses that I picked up at the thrift store! I love how my plain glassware just sparkles on the table and how everything looks so European up against the brick walls.

I stole this glass jar from the living room that is filled with white balls that have cute black letters on them. How perfect is that! Isn't it interesting how when you use a glass dome and place something very simple underneath it...that simple little item becomes something magnificent. I used a clear glass cake plate to elevate it and give it even more prominence on the table.
I don't have enough of the black and white Toile salad plates so I used these white salad plates that have words on them. The whites don't even match but I think it all came together.

Ahhhh...it just says spring doesn't it. Look at the blue sky with white puffy clouds in the back! I think these colors and ideas would work perfectly for a Mother's Day Lunch or even a wedding reception..don't you think?

Okay...a little secret...see those black charger plates sitting underneath the white dinner plate? They are actually gold and red chargers...I just flipped them upside down!! How cool is that! No money spent here!

Bon Appetite!
I also used some other odds and ends from around the house. The white rooster and the tall black wooden thinga ma bobs to add some height and drama.

Hope you all enjoyed my "French Style" tablescape.
Especially you MOM :)

  2. Oh my darling daughter,

    I love, love, love the black and white. You knew I would. Aren't you so precious to dedicate this tablescape to me. I love you to pieces. I would love all of those gorgeous things on my patio. I really think I NEED them. You have such a tremendous talent and I am so proud of you. MOM

  3. Wow...thought I loved the one I blogged about...but now the black and white!!! Oh la la! I love it. I am thinking about making a table cloth like it and using red accents with it instead of pink. I am not a semstress, but I think I could do a table cloth! Did you do just one photo frame on the table? I love that you use thrift store, garage sale and dollar store stuff. You take inexpensive stuff and turn it into GOLD! I love your ideas and now am super motivated. I asked this question in my blog post though...What do you do with your tablescape when it's time to eat, or do you only dress the table before dinner, or? I am having a very DUH moment in relation to that! XO Heidi

  9. I've been visiting your site for awhile now and every time I'm here I love what you've done even more than the time before. This, I think, is my favorite setting. Those pink napkin rings are perfect (I love pink) and the black and white is so sophisticated.

    Beautiful!

  11. I love the way all the black and whites came together. I enjoy matchy matchy, but this is better, pulling a variety of things together to show off a theme. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Well, do you think I like your French style tablescaping? Honestly? I DO LOVE IT... §;-)
    B&W is absolutely stunning. I would die for your apothercary.

    I never seen that in Stockholm, Sweden. I been looking for that for a couple of years now but to no avail. It sucks. I love glasses, big or small & adore cloches.

    I love your blog and guess, will hang out here often.

    Take care and have a wonderful Friday & w/end ahead.

  16. Thanks for so many ideas! I'm going out to the kitchen right now and see if my chargers have black undersides!! I also like that you incorporated a picture frame into the tablescape. When I go by the frames at TJ Maxx (which has really cute, cheap frames), it was sort of a half-thought that I might do something with them on a table. Now you've completed what was only half a thought! I love black and white, too. I plan to get a cup of coffee and have a longer look at your wonderful tablescape. Thanks!

  23. Very cute table! I have those toile dishes! I got them in a set of four from Spiegel some years back. That tablecloth is great- who knew Walmart was a place to go to for French deco too! I like the flipped over chargers- very creative! All of your elements are creative and fun to look at!
