ps. I feel so grown up! Ah! Tell me about YOUR first rental.
All photos sent to me by my future landlord. Better quality pics to come when I move in and redecorate.

As we do have a long weekend here in Belgium, I invited some friends to come over!
So I was browsing into my ‘decoration tips’ file. Since I started blogging I filed a lot of inspirational images which are very helpful whenever I have to create my tablesetting or if I want to redecorate my home bringing in only a few little changes. As I was printing some of the images, I thought that maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea to share them with you.
First thing I always think about are flowers! I can’t imagine my house without flowers!
I love this silver bowl filled with flowers. Source here
Or this marble mortar filled with roses! Source here
Even in th kitchen I love to bring in flowers. Source here

Not only inside the home, but even outside I love to see decorations with flowers.
Love this way of decoration. Source here
And the second thing I think about is ‘how to decorate the guests’ powderroom.
Love this basket filled with soap lathers. Source here
And after this, I love to decorate my bowls and plates with fruit. This is very inviting, isn’t it?
And I love to see pots and jars filled with herbs, on the kitchen shelves. Source here
And then…the atmosphere bringer : lots of candles! In all variations.
Love this! Source here
After all candles are given the right place, I start thinking about redecorating some room corners.
I am going to try to create a still as this here! Gorgeous! Source here
The moment I am satisfied with all this, I start thinking about how to serve the food and how to set my table.
Apero time! Source here
One of the most important things to create a succesful tablescape, is the way you display the napkins. Don’t you agree?
What will I do?
Do you prefer to display them in this way? Source here
Or this way? Source here
Or this one with the key! Isn’ t this lovely? I found it at Jermaine’s blog French Kissed. Source here
Or should I go for the roses? Source here
And yes of course, candles on the table! Always!
After dinner, dessert time.
Or a fruit buffet. Source here
And now it’s time to start cooking!
It promises to be a succesful evening ! Don’t you think?
I wish everyone a wonderful weekend!
