Country Western Tablescape: Ralph and Audrey

By Karin Brosnan - Monday, September 10, 2012

This tablescape makes me think this is what dinner would be like if you combined
Audrey Hepburn and Ralph Lauren....a little elegance and a little rustic....
Ele-Gustic!! My new word hahah
I was actually going for the "Farm Chicks" look..you know those cute gals that have a cookbook, fun apparel and home decor?
I love this Robin's egg blue color or maybe I should call it "Tiffany" Blue for Audrey :) mixed with red and pink. I used my dollar store grapevine wreaths as chargers and tucked in some colorful greenery (I roamed all over my ranch looking for the perfect posies to use) I looked in all my craft boxes and happened to find these little nuggets to tuck in the wreaths.
I did not have enough of the "Tiffany" blue salad plates to use so I mixed it up by using some of my (really expensive antique red floral salad plates) actually my old restaurant cast off luncheon plates that my mom gave me that
I LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Have you noticed my napkin rings yet? Old Ralph would probably have a coronary if he sees these...I cut up leather belts and turned them into napkin rings!!! So dang cute if I do say so myself :)
I had to have a picture with my chandy showing all the fun below.
I used my denim silverware holders to hold the napkins and slid the lether belt napkin rings over the top. Accessorizing girls! How fun is this! Ralph and Audrey would be all over this...I can see it now ...on the tablescape runway....hahaha

I only needed a short part of the leather belt with the buckle on it to make one napkin ring and I had all this left over leather so I cut it into small pieces and hot glued them into a circle and added some "Audrey" to it in the form of a button. (My grandaughter who is 3 saw this at her placesetting and pulled (yanked) hers apart and decided it would be a nice choker necklace ....she then grabbed a thing of tape and had her Aunt Emily tape it together) Creative girl hahaha

Posies tucked into the wreaths

Stacked plates...I love how this looks but the men in our family keep asking why I have to have all the plates? Silly men...it is for looks!

At first I had light pink bowls on the table but it just didn't pop for me...luckily I remembered I had these (super nice pottery barn cranberry bowls that cost a fortune) Garden Ridge .25 cents each bowls I bought when I lived in Texas!
Centerpiece Highlight will be shown tomorrow for Centerpiece Wednesday!
Make sure you come back and link up tomorrow (A day early)
Ele-Rustic!
Sneak Peek of "Boot Scoot Boogie" Centerpiece Wednesday tomorrow!
Just to get your mouth watering a sneak peek of my mini peach pies I made for this dinner! All recipes and photos of the yummy country Western dinner will be posted on Friday so

  2. Ralph Lauren and Audrey Hepburn...two of my all time favorites I love your table, and the napkin rings are superb! I can hardly wait for the mini peack pie recipe...I have several bushels of fresh/frozen peaches that I cut up and put in the freezer to take us into the winter. Thanks for inviting us for a peak.

  3. This is overwhelmingly ele-rustic -just like you stated. That is the perfect name for it. Those red and white restaurant plates have to be my favorites. Love the belt idea. Now if Solo plasticware would come out with an ele-rustic line I would be in business!
