tabletop; rainbow sherbet

Thank you so much for your sweet comments about my injury. You are all truly awesome!! I feel a little better in that there is pain only when I move my arm. My appointment with the specialist is on thursday and I hope to get some good news, like Im magically healed.

As promised, here are more pics from my washpo express shoot. My inspiration for this summer tabletop, lovely pinks and lilacs fresh from the farmers market.

me in action…

Starting the meal off right with fresh raspberries paired with a crisp glass of champagne.

i love details and personal touches. I also love to find unexpected uses for things. here, i am using ceramic measuring spoons from anthropologie to hold various types of salt.

The table cloth is actually a scarf from h&m. plates and pink glasses from anthropologie, napkins are vintage from a thrift store, palceholder napkin rings from pottery barn, goblets from target, silerware from william sonoma, ceramic sugar pot from anthropologie and chinese soup spoons and pillar candles from pier1.

would love to read your thoughts on this tabletop…

  1. It’s stunning, Manvi! There are so many details, I hardly know where to focus! The little dishes of salt may be my favorite part though. Stop by if you can for my new giveaway. It’s the biggest one yet. 🙂

  2. sooooooooooooo gorgeous… you make it all look so pretty with so much ease!! Gosh.. you are way too talented!!! Love the use of measuring spoons…

  3. Manvi, absolutely fantastic! And the last image just sends so much love and good energy. Bravissimo, my friend!

  4. This is such a beautiful tabletop! love the farmers market inspiration behind it – just gorgeous…my fave is the raspberries on the chinese spoon so perfect :)!

  5. Apart from being completely blow away by how fabulous you look (!!) I love this table. It is sweet, feminine, romantic and the perfect setting for an intimate lunch with a loved one.
    I think your attention to detail is impeccable and you have arranged all objects with perfection. It is well dressed without feeling contrived or cluttered.
    The colours are divine and so well balanced. Manvi I love all of it and am SO PROUD of you gal!!

    Glad to hear the arm is a little less painful. Did you get the Arnica tablets??

    Big hug and lots of love,
    xx Charlotta

  8. Manvi you look absolutely stunning. Love the outfit – it is impeccable. The tabletop is also amazing. I especially love the repurposed scarf. 🙂

  9. Manvi,

    The table settings look great. Anthropologie is a new store for me. There is one here in Denver at Cherry Creek Shopping Center and one in Centennial at Park Meadows Shopping Center.

  10. Manvi, so sorry to hear about your collarbone:( hope it heals quickly! my husband [he’s a nurse!:)] said that you should be fine…collarbones heal just fine, especially at your age. hopefully the doctor says the same thing!!

    and this tabletop–girl you are so good! and the photo of you is gorgeous. hope your day is going well!

  11. MANVIIII! this is my favorite tabletop EVER! how beautiful, romantic, sweet, chic, stylish, etc etc etc. Totally adorbs..

  12. Extremely pretty, love the color scheme and the whole setting, it’s really gorgeous!

  13. That is such a beautiful tabletop design. I love the striped scarf that you used as a tablecloth. It pulls everything together so well and keeps the design so fresh and interesting. My favorite part… the raspberries on the Chinese soup spoons!
