Red & Zebra Tablescape

By now, you know how much I love Zebra.

It’s so hard for me not be drawn to anything with a zebra pattern.  I love the graceful lines of the pattern, and the black & white contrast makes adding color to it so easy.

I used the same centerpiece, place mats & coasters that I used in my Zebra Tablescape.

I hope you like this week’s tablescape.

Red & Zebra Tablescape

The inspiration for this tablescape started back in February.  I’d seen these mugs as a Valentine’s Day decoration.  When they went on sale for half price, I just had to have them.  They came with this cute little monkey which I removed & will use later.  The red heart on the mug is why I went with the red.

Then I was in the Dollar Tree & spotted these goblets.  That’s when the entire tablescape came together.

Since I’m still trying to use up my fabric & craft stash, I got out some zebra patterned ribbon & added it to some red napkins.  (more ribbon & fabric used!)

I like the way the zebra trim on the napkins look.  I added some of the same ribbon to some clear napkin rings with double sided tape.  The silverware is Oneida Northland Old Baroque.  I chose that because of the dark shading that went well with the black & white.

I started with a red tablecloth & then used clear dishes to let the zebra pattern show through.

The centerpiece is very special to me and I cherish it.  My dearest friend made this for me in ceramic.  Since this tablescape was done in red & zebra, I filled the zebra with red roses & red glitter ting ting.  I set it on an oval mirror & added some red & clear gems to carry the color down.

And I just had to light the candles even though the sun was shining like crazy!
