Ding ding ding!

To the bling bling bling…ahem.  So yesterday’s post seems to have gone down pretty well I am happy to say, and the gold cutlery has been on the receiving end of an appropriate amount of lovin’.  So I thought today I’d share a few tablescape inspo piccies with you lot.

I’ve been totally head over heels for the goldies for a good few years now, in fact I even vaguely seriously considered buying 90 sets for our wedding as I couldn’t source any on island.  But {IRRITATINGLY} the moment that I’m actually finally in the market for some flatware, Zara Home goes and sells out of the design I’ve been coveting forever, the little stinkers.  There are quite few styles on the market right now but the only other set that’s really caught my eye are the DVF Home goodies – unfortunately these beauts are priced a smidge outside our budget…like 20 times.

Anyhoo, I will triumph in the end, don’t you worry about that – as an added incentive we shall be using these uggers buggers until I find some goodies to replace them:

Yuck.  So here are a few examples of quite simple and calm tablescapes (oh, apart from that fierce animal print tablecloth, oops)…

Aaaand lastly, do you remember this insane editorial by Rue Mag, from way back when?

I love them all, but which is your fave…?

      Thanks so much for the suggestion Emily, really sweet of you! I did see them yep and do like them, but am after the full on 100% goldies I think. Thank you though!

    I haven’t seen these metallic cutlery sets anywhere here before, and I am quite enamored by them, especially love it in the table with the pink florals, he two below that one, so refined and glamourous.

  2. Now I know why, these goldies are amazing and look so good on the table. I think I did not pay so much attention to these details, except for my purple plates sets, I did not invest, but now I have to…Someone is going shopping for goldies…Even though I am not a fan of brown, that third picture table is so beautiful 🙂 Have a lovely day, Elly!

    PS: I will post some picture next week from the crazy crazy 20s party 😉

  3. I’m usually one for the subtle, but seriously Ellie…the in your face tablescapes are kind of killing me right now. I love them all! Also pertinent…how cute is that little gold pony on the plate? 😀

  4. Those inspiration pics are the bombdebomb. Big love here from me. Erm…don’t hate me but I found 2 full sets on eBay – place settings for 12 – brand spanking new and priced at just £27. I got them over a year ago and LOVE THEM. In fact, I use them every Saturday (along with my prettiest plates) because I don’t believe in keeping ‘best’ only for special occasions. My point is however to keep an eye out on eBay because you just never know 😉 Good luck with the search! xxx
