Dining Room Tid Bits with guest blogger Kirsten Krason

Welcome to the first "Dining Room Tid Bits" our special guest blogger is

Kirsten shares her formula for decorating a room or a tablescape-
I pull together a tablescape the same way I pull together a room, I always start with fabric first. In this case I had a set of colorful floral napkins that I picked up at T.J. Maxx several years ago.
I love pulling these napkins out in the Summer or Spring because of the vibrant colors that are used. I then look around my house to see what I can use that is in this color scheme. I had purchased these felt green placemats years ago at Home Goods and I love how they pull the green out from the napkins. The gold chargers were an after Christmas Target special and I love the metallic sparkle they add to the table. I always shop after Holidays to find pieces that I can use all year long. These chargers work for any season or any Holiday.
For my table runner I layered an old CB2 runner with some circle paper dots. These were leftover from a bridal shower that I threw for a friend. I find it helpful to keep leftover party supplies on hand to make pulling together my tablescapes a little easier.
For my centerpiece I pulled over some faux cherry blossoms that were in my Living Room. I love fresh flowers but if don't have them on hand I find that faux flowers can make a beautiful replacement and the pink impact was perfect for this table!
For me a great table comes together just like a great room. The formula is simple, a beautiful fabric mixed together with metallics, coordinating colors and geometric shapes!
I hope you enjoyed meeting Kirsten and learning how she puts together a room or tablescape. Make sure you head over to her blog and her interior design website to see her incredible work.
