Crème de la crème

If you're ever unsure of what to use when decorating your table settings, wedding or home, just always remember, one of the most sumptuous colours you can surround yourself with is cream. This is a selection of some of my favourite cream settings, some in my home, some pretty weddings that I styled and some of my still life photographs.

I need some calm cream colours in my life at the moment, I have had a very weird week where my head has been spinning, quite literally spinning, the room has been turning upside down and I have been loosing my balance whilst walking around. I have spent most of the week in bed under a pillow. Is the universe trying to tell me something, rest.... and slow down. What a wonderful thought.

Wishing you all a wonderful week and Happy Tablescape Thursday

Don't forget to visit Susan's party at Between Naps on the Porch, there are fantastic Easter tablesettings and beautiful spring settings.

and please, please leave me a quick note so I know you have been here.

  1. Oh, Coty. I always think everything you post is my favorite to date. But this IS my favorite. What an amazing talent you have!

    So sorry to hear that you're feeling unwell. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

    Thank you for sharing the enchanted world you inhabit ... and create!

    With kindest regards,

  2. Your creams are an inspiration. I totally agree that they are the tablescaper's best friend. I hope you feel better.

  3. the creams. You have the most delicious style. I am reading that you are not feeling well, and I too would like to wish you a speedy recovery.
    Happy Spring,

  4. The PERFECT title for this post!! Is there anything sweeter than a little boy in a big collar--I so hope there are knee socks and English walking sandles tucked underneath that! Gorgeous and elegant as always :) Hope you feel better--please take care!

  5. Dear Coty
    Well firstly I hope you are feeling somewhat better... the room spinning is not good at all... but if it were to spin I guess it would be better to have some of these lovely images floating around you...

    My goodness.. always a terrific post full of beautiful images and artwork... and always something that reminds me of childhood.. everytime.. I swear that bone handled cutlery came straight from my childhood home.. and the painting of the lady with the ruffled collar.. 'Mame" haha another childhood memory... Love it all.. do hope you feel better.. xx Julie

  6. Dear Coty, sorry to hear the room has been spinning.Several years ago I had a virus called "Labyrinthitis" which made my head spin for 8 weeks.Drs said it generally lasted 2 to 6 weeks and there isnt much you can do to treat it.I hope you havent got it but it might be worth asking if it doesnt go away. I love your blog and I think Bowral is one of the most beautiful and magical places in Australia. I hope to get back for a visit this year.I look forward to more of your superb visual feasts. Fiona
