I received so much positive feedback from my Valentine’s Day Tablescape that I decided to do one for the Academy Awards. The Oscars are my Superbowl, so I took to Pinterest for some ideas. I knew I wanted to start with a black and white color scheme, and then I added some gold for some Old Hollywood Glamour. I wanted a pop of color, so I was so excited to find red roses on sale for a steal after Valentine’s Day (I used 3 dozen, which were the same price as 3 roses the day before Valentine’s Day…. so if you love roses, now is the time to buy… I wonder if the same goes for diamonds…. maybe I’ll take a trip to the jewelry store… talk to me Harry Winston, tell me all about it)
I started with a black tablecloth (I found this one at Bed Bath & Beyond). Then I used this sparkly gold table runner that I found on Etsy… I’m a sucker for sequins. I scattered my mirrored star coasters (that I’ve had for years, but I think I found them at Crate & Barrel) and toped them with some tumblers from Michaels (I also used them in my Valentine’s and Christmas tablescapes). Then used two candle holder that I also found at Michaels… I love the silvery gold sparkly they have.
I left my round mirror, that I bought at Michaels and used in my Valentine’s Day tablescape, in the center and placed a gold placemat over it (I also found this as Bed Bath & Beyond).
I finished off the look with my discounted red roses. I used a vase that I found in my mother’s collection (I thought it had a bit of an art deco feel to it). Flower arranging has always been my nemesis. For some reason, I never like the way flowers look when I put them in a vase myself…. but I LOVE these. Even though it’s just a simple vase of red roses, I’m going to consider this a major accomplishment for me in the world of flower arranging!
