Orangeries are greenhouses, popular in 17th century France, used for wintering over fruit trees. For a refreshing winter table setting, I love decorating with citrus and greens and I like to imagine enjoying a meal inside one of these grand buildings on a dark winter day.
I made mine with mix and match white containers, bay, boxwood, and clementines. I like the idea of adding tiny votives and paperwhites too. See more at Project Wedding.
simply beautiful. makes me want to visit one. One of my favorites is Dumbarton Oaks in DC. beautiful.
Gorgeous and so simply! My neighbor gave me some of her beautiful backyard lemons for New Year’s and I think I’m going to do something similar.
Happy New Year! Frolic is still one of my favorite blogs. 😀
Oh, btw, that link to Project Wedding is broken.
I love those colors together! Really wintery but a bit of a punch too, with the orange. Wonderful work as usual, Chelsea!
Such a fresh and inspiring concept for this moment in time! I love the citrus combined with white tablewares. So pretty!
even just a white ceramic vase of bay and boxwood would be so cheering this time of year! i love how crisp it looks.
oh! the mini duralex. lurve.
Absolutely love this… simply marvellous. I got very excited about combining this with mismatched metal vintage pots… so much that I have popped it on my blog (with full credit and a link of course!). Inspirational and divine… feeling the need to go and tweet about it right at this moment!
So pretty. The combination of glasses, bowls, vases, really makes it.
I have the white dishes. I have the clementines. I just took down the tree. It looks kinda empty in here. So… Thanks ~ This will totally brighten up the house!
This is my ideal table setting. So simple!
I just re-did my blog layout and would love opinions…
So simple and pretty
