High Drama Tablescape | Life and Linda -Blog Design, Decorating, Tablescapes, Gardening

High Drama Tablescape


This is our Breakfast room.  I love how this looks at night.  With the french doors wide open and the lighting. It says, come on in!


This tablescape is high drama with the black and gold. and leopard print. I added a leopard print pumpkin for fun. We recently bought two of these from Hobby Lobby.  My Mother and I went shopping earlier this week.  We thought we could make some of our own pumpkins.  We are looking at making some wreaths too.


Did you notice the gold glitter high heel?  It's for a wine bottle.  I bought 4 of them on sale at Safeway when they marked down down.  I ended up paying around $3.00 each. I am a glitzy kind of woman.....



Twilight lighting outside, the magic hour. I am using gold chargers with gold plates, black dinner plates, topped with leopard salad plates.  Leopard glasses and gold goblets from Zgallerie. Gold flatware follows the theme.


My husband and I were out shopping at Pottery World and we spotted these beautiful candles. I thought they would look fabulous on our mantel. I decided to include them in this tablescape.
They are so pretty. Of course you can't buy them just anywhere.  They sell to retail.



Of course I had to include my thrifty nifty trick of using pillow cases. These are from the Dollar Tree.



Have a fabulous weekend.  I am slowly adding Fall decor to our home.

  5. OOOO! Swanky! I had to go through about four times to make sure I took it all in. I think we have the same flatware pattern, so you just gave me some wonderful ideas. I need to find some leopard things, definitely. Such a clever idea to use pillowcases as chair-back shrugs.

  13. I was wondering if you bought material to MAKE the chair covers! The pillowcase idea is genius!! I have to measure my chairs now!!! I adore this table, it is ME too!!! Just gorgeous.

    1. No, go to your local dollar store and grab different colors. It works great when your chairs are a different color and you want to blend them with your table setting. And cheap!

  18. Hiya Wonder Woman,
    I was reading your post earlier in my email today and was blown away by this great tablescape!
    Love that you titled it 'high drama' because it definitely is! How fun and exciting. Love the wine holder, the candles, the place settings...love it all!
    Such a talented designer you are, Linda!

  20. Good morning dearest Linda! I am late; out Saturday running errands before school officially starts on Monday! OOOOH How I love your breakfast room; it's like a dining room for some folks, but you have such a great space here to entertain on a smaller yet elegant scale. That glittered shoe is awesome for a wine bottle! I thought fall was on its way here since we had some cooler weather, but summer is lingering and that's great. But soon fall will be here and I can decorate too with my white pumpkins!

    Looking good my friend! Anita

  33. The above commenters have nailed it in their comments! This table certainly deserves the highest praise, Linda. It is sumptuous glamour even though some of your elements were bargains. And the view from outside looks like a cover of AD magazine.

    And that gorgeous tablecloth sets the stage for everything on it.

  35. Oh, look at this cute glitter high heel wine holder! Your table looks stunning, Linda. I have seen these candles at Pottery World, as I go there about once a month. You have all the pretty Fall colors adorning your table.

  36. Your taste and mine are so similar! I think this glitz and glam table is just fabulous, and I am going to have to add to my tablecloth collection - the black pinch pleat is wonderful. Those gold shoes are stunning.
    What a pretty room and I love that you showed us the view from outdoors - yes I want to come in!!

  38. Hi Linda, your breakfast area is gorgeous. Love the tablescape you created and I always enjoy to see the look on the chairs with the pillow cases. Wish our Dollar Tree sold pillow cases. Love those gorgeous candles. The high heel shoe for wine is awesome.
    Have a great rest of the week and Happy September. cm

  39. Stunning! You do create the most gorgeous tablescapes! I love the leopard touches, the candles...well, all of it. I know your guests must always feel so pampered. The french doors are beautiful and you're so fortunate NOT to have all the bugs and mosquitoes we do! :)
