Tablescaping with Nesting Newbies

Have you checked out the 2nd Issues of online shelter magazine Nesting Newbies yet? The winter issue is more than double the size of the premiere issue and is overflowing with inspiration!! I especially loved their ideas for tablescaping this month!

The bright pinks and stripes of this one bring me right back to the carefree days of my childhood! I absolutely adore the playful candy jars paired with the drama and sophistication of those gorgeous green, taffeta silk drapes. It's the perfect balance of whimsy and reality.
The fuchsia and those chairs steal the show for me when it comes to this room. A hint of chinosaire goes a long way in creating this style. The Chinese landscape fabrics in the chair backs and napkins are the perfect detail touch.


Modern and soothing, what's not to love about this one? But perhaps my favorite detail of the space is that upside down pot planter used for the pendant light shade. Just fabulous!

Nesting Newbies is great, they're certainly filling the shoes of our now defunct House and Garden, Domino, Gourmet, etc.
