Remember when I was asking for advise for this wing back chair that I used to hate?
I mean look at her... she is UGLY! However, this is the last time that you see her like that!
Well it's time for the big reveal...
Are you ready?....

As we do have a long weekend here in Belgium, I invited some friends to come over!
So I was browsing into my ‘decoration tips’ file. Since I started blogging I filed a lot of inspirational images which are very helpful whenever I have to create my tablesetting or if I want to redecorate my home bringing in only a few little changes. As I was printing some of the images, I thought that maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea to share them with you.
First thing I always think about are flowers! I can’t imagine my house without flowers!
I love this silver bowl filled with flowers. Source here
Or this marble mortar filled with roses! Source here
Even in th kitchen I love to bring in flowers. Source here

Not only inside the home, but even outside I love to see decorations with flowers.
Love this way of decoration. Source here
And the second thing I think about is ‘how to decorate the guests’ powderroom.
Love this basket filled with soap lathers. Source here
And after this, I love to decorate my bowls and plates with fruit. This is very inviting, isn’t it?
And I love to see pots and jars filled with herbs, on the kitchen shelves. Source here
And then…the atmosphere bringer : lots of candles! In all variations.
Love this! Source here
After all candles are given the right place, I start thinking about redecorating some room corners.
I am going to try to create a still as this here! Gorgeous! Source here
The moment I am satisfied with all this, I start thinking about how to serve the food and how to set my table.
Apero time! Source here
One of the most important things to create a succesful tablescape, is the way you display the napkins. Don’t you agree?
What will I do?
Do you prefer to display them in this way? Source here
Or this way? Source here
Or this one with the key! Isn’ t this lovely? I found it at Jermaine’s blog French Kissed. Source here
Or should I go for the roses? Source here
And yes of course, candles on the table! Always!
After dinner, dessert time.
Or a fruit buffet. Source here
And now it’s time to start cooking!
It promises to be a succesful evening ! Don’t you think?
I wish everyone a wonderful weekend!
