Noosa Style - Dream Table Settings
It’s the festive season and time for beautiful summery outdoor dining here in Australia. The beautiful countryside of Noosa is perfect for gorgeous table settings inspired by nature.
I am dreaming of a long outdoor table for lunch with food so local it came straight out of the vege patch. Jars full of flowers would run down the centre and in my dreams I would gather all my most favourite people from around the world on top of my hill.
The longer the table the better....just add nature, a rustic white tablecloth and some twinkling fairy lights and watch the magic happen...
Dappled sunlight through a trellis, maybe under a tropical passionfruit vine...
Just perfect – who wouldn’t love to spend the afternoon here?
Love the delicate arrangements in glass jars.
Never throw away a glass jar. Use them as rustic glasses or for sweet bouquets.
If you are ever at the gorgeous Eumundi Markets make sure you visit the talented Natashia on her stall called Heavenly Blooms.
Natashia sells the most divine posies of English cottage garden flowers in cute little jars decorated with lace and ribbon. For around $7 you can bring home the sweetest bouquet in a gorgeous vintage tea cup and saucer to make any table setting perfect...
Fill jars or glass vases with different posies of Sweet-pea, Snapdragons, fluffy white or blue Hydrangea blooms.
Keep it simple but add any gorgeous treasure you find as a centrepiece - a feather, pine cone or olive leaf branches.
The creativity is yours to gather - the memory for your guests is to keep.
In case you have a barn handy!
Barn + Chandeliers = Romantic party backdrop.
Just another reason to covet country living!
Or how about this dream setting, right on the beach? The perfect view of the ocean, the waves as your soundtrack and nothing but sand beneath your feet.
Dream about your own walled courtyard garden with heavenly rose blooms..
Love the goblets and woodsy atmosphere of this dusky mystical setting.
This table is the memory of a perfect feast.
Life should be spent in magical settings sharing beautiful moments with people you love.
So which one is your table?
