ENTERTAINING, TABLETOP | September 30, 2007

3 blogs and a mood board – 2007.09.29 edition, part 1

Hostess with the Mostess : Shelterrific : Housemartin

This week I made two boards. The first one celebrates autumn at the cottage. It reminds me of the spectacular views delivered by the Canadian forests at this time of the year.

1 | Hostess with the Mostess for New stuff at Zanisa

These natural slate boards available at Zanisa become markers. Little wooden pegs let them stand vertically or horizontally. Use a chalk to identify dishes at a buffet or use them as nameplates at your table. Pretty cool accessories for the party celebrating the end of the cottage season. These markers are from the new collection at Zanisa featured by Hostess with the Mostess this week.

2 | Shelterrific for on the table: flowers, fabric and more

I am a proud owner of similar birch tubes from Small Stump. Naturally, I am a fan. The On the table: flowers, fabric and more post displayed them all dressed up with a ribbon next to a wooden birdhouse as a table marker.

A charming setting that was realized by Angela M., the founder and editor of Shelterrific. The flowers reveal the typical Fall color palette of our forests.

3 | Housemartin for Willy Wonka’s bathtub

Some great modern vases are styled against vintage, rusty tools. I like the textured wooden vases filled with wild flowers. These pictures are from the Autumn Winter 2007 / 2008 catalogue of Zara Home in Europe.

About Willy Wonka’s bathtub, it is quite industrial. Not really what I have in mind when it came to a bathroom design.

I should publish my second weekly mood board featuring posts from other bloggers tomorrow Monday.
