Copy A Table ...:):)

    It was interesting to do a table setting for "Kathleen's copy a table challenge" for 11th  December.

     I selected a picture from the "Architectural Digest" magazine and the table scape photo was from the home of none other than the master designer himself "Ralph Lauren". I liked it instantly for the table had a Tartan fabric touch. Seeing it i felt it would be apt to copy the table for the  challenge and the season as well.As  all of you know the fabric is a natural choice at this time of the year.

    I spread the tartan tablecloth and used my red plates like the white plates used on 'RLs' table.Instead of a transparent hurricane lamp I have placed a red hurricane lamp in the center .I have also used  three stem glasses to match the picture setting.The side board in the picture has a  red hunting coat,candle holders and a lamp.Instead i have  placed a old Ficus Bonsai tree decorated  with red bows and a candle holder filled with potpourris  for my side board.I hope you all like it.






























Thank you for your visit and have a wonderful season....:):)

  8. What a beautiful table! I love anything Ralph Lauren and I am using the same Royal Stewart tartan on my real Christmas table this year. I like your red hurricane better than the plain one in the photos. I loved this challenge, but I was on vacation and never finished my post. Great job!!

  18. Ahhhhh....tartan!!! One of my very favorite design elements of the Christmas season! Ralph Lauren's world seems immersed in tartan, and that is a beautiful thing!!! I love it that you chose the work of RL to emulate for Kathleen's party!!! Such a pretty Christmas table!!!

  19. I love the RL table but I love yours more. Using tartan plaid in a tablescape automatically says Christmas to me. The golden deer and the red hurricanes launches your table far beyond the RL inspiration. Beautiful job of copycat inspiration.
