A French Farmhouse, Industrial Centerpiece
Added by: TidbitsTwine
Recently, I came across this two-tiered basket at HomeGoods. I love a bit of the industrial touch, so I was immediately drawn to the mix of wire and rope. I snatched it up thinking it would be perfect in the kitchen, but when I got it home, decided it was just too big for the space I had in mind. I had every intention of returning it, but then it struck me, it would make a great centerpiece in the dining room! I wanted something neutral and that would play into my look of Casual Elegance, so I added a mix of all my favorite things to pull the look together. I used some linen napkins and added a few of my great-grandmothers serving pieces. I like that the linen provides an organic look and ties in with the rope on the basket. The silver adds a touch of elegance, even despite the tarnish. I placed a few pieces in a Mason Jar along with some other flatware, and a few pieces in the top tier of the baskets along with some white taper candles. I added a few roses from my garden in a Mason Jar tied with twine. (Okay, I know these arent the prettiest of the rose varieties, but I love my Iceberg roses because they bloom continuously from Spring through Fall.) Another Mason Jar holds an assortment of wine bottle corks that I typically use as filler in greenery displays. And thats it! A simple, Casual Elegant centerpiece. I dont plan on keeping this on the table when eating in the dining room, but I like the look of it as an everyday display.
