Today I'm excited to introduce you all to another one of my best friends (yes I'm biased, but their blogs are FAB). Madison has the most impeccable taste, and I envy her eye for style. She works as a wedding planner in Chicago (even more jealous), and is constantly surrounded by beautiful pictures so I knew she was the perfect person to get table decorating advice from.
Hi all, it's Madison from The White Ruffle and I am so excited to be here today sharing some lovely table decorating ideas with you all! First off, Julia has been one of my best friends for years now, and I feel very honored that she has asked me to give her some decorating ideas! I mean come on- we all can clearly see that she has impeccable taste, I only hope these ideas below are worthy of her stamp of approval (they totally are - I'm drooling, JR)
Julia's apartment is adorable (we have all seen pictures) but she has one space that needs a little something extra. Her kitchen table...an area where you eat, entertain, do work and relax. How can one space that fullfills all of those activities have one decorating idea? The truth is, I couldn't narrow it down to just one, so here are a few ideas for her to work with:
1. Fresh Flowers...easy peasy, simple idea, yet always beautiful
2. Dolie Runner! I found this wonderful DIY idea here at Style Me Pretty and fell in love! Plus I am a huge fan of white on white...I will have to test this out soon and let you know how it goes.
3. If you love the white but want to spice up the actual table, I think that paint is always a great option! I am a huge fan of chevron stripes and think that some light gray tones would be a beautiful pattern on a simple white table top. Here is a step by step DIY guide for painting chevron stripes.
4. Beautiful place mats found here!
Hope you all found some of these ideas inspirational and helpful! Thank you Julia for letting me share!
