Hello, Everyone! I'm thrilled to be back guest posting at New England Home Magazine today. Today's mission? Creating a Anthropologie-inspired tablescape for under $50. Can it be done, you ask? The answer is a resounding yes!
I headed straight for to my local Homegoods and to see what goodies were awaiting me. My first find was the tablecloth which had an Anthropologie vibe, so I took it from there.
I spotted these beautiful tea tins and knew that I had to have them for my centerpiece. I love the mix of colors and I know I will use them time and time again, to hold flowers on my kitchen windowsill, bedside table, and powder room, (not to mention I am now stocked with a delicious variety of teas).
The little blue bowls were a find at $1.99 and are perfect for holding ripe fresh strawberries. They will also be cute for serving sorbet, a summertime fave.
The tray I already owned and it worked perfect for displaying flaky Croissants and Granny Smith Apples. Mixing in items you already own is key to keep the cost down when creating the perfect table.
I created the brunch menu on my computer and just simply printed it out on cardstock paper and used a frame I already had.
These plates are very Anthropologie-like. I ran into my close friend, Terry, in Homegoods, (also a stylist), who came around the corner holding one of these plates and we both oohed and awed. They are my new favorite.

My grand total? $49.99! Not bad at all. Are you a fan of Anthroplogie-inspired tablescapes as well? When was the last time you had your girlfriends over for a relaxing brunch?
