This week’s tablescape was inspired by the bold patterns of my favorite linen supplier, Hen House Linens. I love the modern and preppy style of these linens-they shout gracious living without being stuffy.
Mixing-and-matching the patterns allows you to reinvent your table with simple changes. This swatch combination is called Bargello Navy and Bold Stripe Navy and can be purchased at http://shop.henhouselinens.com/. If you are local, you can find a great selection of Hen House linens at Seasons in Madison, NJ.
I used all white china (Lenox, Opal Innocenc) and milk glass serving pieces for contrast which makes the brights look even more modern and crisp.
The centerpiece consists of a Fenton silver crest milk glass trumpet vase filled with hydrangeas and a pair of Fenton silver crest candlesticks with navy blue candles by Caspari.
I found this silver pie server at le Marche de Puce at Porte de Clignacourt in Paris.
