Tablescape


Monchéri cracks me up. He's learning English - well poco a poco (little by little) as we say in Spanish - and the other day he came up with this word tablescape. This one must be reading design blogs with much more avidity than I. Peevishly, I confessed the term was unknown to me. So here's to tablescape and tablescaping!


this custom made lucite table could be useful to put a glass or two but it's mainly filled with samples of my cards (from last Xmas season), bangles and a vintage bracelet


don't ask me why I added this collage...at the moment I thought it was funny


little shoe from one of the numerous shoe miniature shops in Elche near Alicante, famous for its shoe making activity. A mini guest soap from Guerlain is tucked inside of the shoe. What for ?...I don't know....

a collector's Evian bottle, the red mini is topped with a lighting ball bought at the V&A shop in London, a broken diamond cut crystal, a Christmas decoration and some of my designed cards from last summer


and you do you tablescape ?

(can I see please)


edit to post and note to myself: I think it's time to rethink this tablescape...too crowded

I tablescape so much that it can actually get out of hand! I have to hold myself back so it won't look too contrived. Yours is oh, so fun!! :^)

Nice tablescape!!!
I do not do them, how much can they endure in my home, but my little one does,he is not tidy but he has 2 perfect tablescapes with little toys, in his bedroom.

dear Lala, unfortunately i don't tablescape (hee hee, such a great word:), too many of my table surfaces are covered with books and magazines. when i was a kid my mom would walk into my room and just wonder 'what is the deal with this girl and paper.'

your tablescapes are so pretty. they remind me so much of modern art. i would love to walk into a modern art museum and see one of your tablescapes, stand in ponder. i love it. i'd want to touch the beautiful shoe, smell the guerlain soap. try on the bracelets and bangles...

Such a lovely tablescape Lala.
The Lucky Bitch adds a perfect touch of humor and whimsy to your design.

Listen to your Cherie. He's in the know. There's a lady on the food network here in the states Sandra Dee. She is into "tablescapes" too!

I have no room for a tablescape, alas! I have a dresserscape in my bedroom, but it is very sparse. I tend not to have too many things (unless you are counting lipsticks or shoes, neither of which would make a nice display).

I think I would have a miniature shoe tablescape, given the choice. Please thank Moncheri for introducing me to something new.

I love your tablescape. My only complaint with my house is that there are so few horizontal surfaces. I love to create vignettes. I am dying over that sparkly mini shoe.
