Fall Tablescape: Urban Chic

welcome to all who are arriving via my guest post
over on
BROADWAY+THRESHER Magazine's blog!

HOMEWARDfound is all about inspiration for your seasonal decor, 
making use of everyday 'found' items and natural elements
to bring fresh beauty to your rooms each season...
decorate without spending a lot of money!

 my table decor design for B+T 
was created with a cocktail or dessert party in mind -
easy to accomplish in a small space OR on a tight timeline

friends popping in spur of the moment?
grab some of your basic household goods and put them together in a new way
[i call that my trademark 'Fast, Cheap, & Easy' decor!]

this design scheme features a masculine style,
using industrial materials like galvanized metal and wire, 
the roughness of wood, the smoothness of clear glass, 
crisp black dinnerware & linens, and a few whimsical game pieces. 
a few unusual serving ideas make this compact bar or dessert service station
function effectively while looking stylish:
 dessert-size flatware is held in a footed clear glass votive cup, anchored by Scrabble tiles
a dinner plate sits on top of a galvanized watering can,
to elevate and serve aperitif glasses, appetizers, or desserts.

think of every item you own as a possible decorative item, 
and you'll never run out of possibilities for a stunning table, room, and party.
and remember, even though we all love surfing pinterest and blogs and mags for ideas,
don't get hung up on 'what's IN'.... express YOUR OWN STYLE!

i would like to express my gratitude and thanks to 
David Gobeli and Andrew Kohn, 
Editors of BROADWAY+THRESHER Magazine,
for asking me to be a contributor to their new publication and blog.
i am honored to be included in their vision,
and look forward to bringing you content that inspires you creatively
and shares the stories of the many creative artisans and businesses in our world.
