Strawberry Table Top

With Derby over it was time to change up my
entry hall table with a new tablescape.
I decided to use this old pitcher and basin as the focal point.
I purchased this at an estate auction in our old neighborhood.
The owner was a lovely lady 94 years young!

Along with this "H" tile from the Vatican gift store, given to me as a Christmas gift one year.

I put the basin on a plant stand to give it some height and then added a plate underneath to give it some layering depth.

Inside the basin I added clear stones to fill it
and then layered on top some faux strawberries.

Here's a bird's eye view. I like the red with the red in the marbletop.
Next I added three miniature vases from Pier One to the left side.

I thought this red tied to the red of the marble top and the berries.

The first strawberries are in at our local farmers market - yum!

Here's a shot with different lighting. Thanks for stopping by today :)
