Pam's Design Tip of the Day

Pam's Design Tip Number One - Designing Tablescapes
You can turn an average basic kitchen table into an inviting place for family and friends to sit, share conversation and enjoy each others company by putting something as simple as a vase with flowers or a candle arrangement with a table cloth, place mats or table runner. 
Remember this tip! To keep the guests at your table talking, remember to place your centerpiece either below or above eye level or it needs to be translucent- something you can see through. This way it will end up staying on the table as well as styling it. Nothing is worse than trying to talk through the hosts decoration!


This photo was taken at the Willow House Idea and Product showcase from the first Willow House National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in July 2010. 
The large glass statement vases are WH exclusive Lady Jane Bottleneck vases modeled after classic demijohn bottles in wine making. WH has two sizes in shades of aqua or apple. The red casserole dish is from our Cinnabar collection, which includes,tidbits, plates, canisters, servers, appetizer tray. In the foreground is the "must have decoration of the Season" our WH holiday Door bucket. 
Check out Pam's Willow House website link for more details on purchasing them.
