My Spring Entertaining Inspiration Shoot for Anthropologie

Can we officially say that winter is behind us and spring has arrived? I sure hope so, because last week I shared someĀ spring entertaining inspiration and ideas over on the Anthropologie blog, and now I’m itching to put them to use at my next gathering. I loved putting this shoot together so much that I couldn’t resist sharing a few extra images here. They’re too lovely to keep all to myself!

My task was to style a tabletop setting to illustrate some of my favorite ways to celebrate the freshness and frivolity of springā€”using some gorgeous finds from Anthropologie’s latest homewares collection, of course. You’ll never catch me complaining about a chance to play with new toys as lovely as these marbled porcelain place settings, brass candlesticks, and gold flatware!

Truth be told, I was quite nervous that this shoot wouldn’t come together the way I envisioned it in my mind’s eye; what with wedding planning and my current workload, my brain hasn’t had much opportunity to be creative lately! But I really did put my money where my mouth was when it came to implementing some tips for setting a beautiful table in practically no time. Pop on over to the Anthropologie blog for the whole scoop!
