Coffee Table Ideas from Mary Carol Garrity

A Coffee Table Redo

Recently I read Ms. Garrity's blog about coffee table ideas and decided yes, my coffee table does need a redo.

So I started with this beautiful linen embroidered
towel my mother gave me as a base.

Then I layered in some of my Star of David collection - a cake plate, coasters and a candy dish.

Finally I added candle sticks and Ms. Bunny Williams
classic An Affair with a House.

I love the scalloped detail on the base of this cake plate. It's a bit hard to see by picture, but the glassware showed nicely against the dark wood table.

Miss Madison would like you to visit these lovely ladies parties to see other great ideas. She would also like her mother to get her to the beauty salon for a trim :)

Metamorphosis Monday, Table Top Tuesday, Three or More Tuesday, and White Wednesday.
