Gracious Girls – Making the World Beautiful!
Each week, Gracious Living Guide provides practical tips, encouragement, and advice with the goal of showing our readers just how easy it is to add elegance and graciousness to their lives. We hope that the advice inspires our readers to try something new or different that will elevate life experiences.
This week, we are proud to spotlight one of our readers, a Gracious Girl who, after reading our column, Terrific Tablescapes – From Dollar Store Finds, was inspired to take her entertaining up a notch! Our spotlight is on Gracious Girl Cheryl Bingham.
Cheryl has always had an interest in all things hearth and home, including flower arranging, home decor and entertaining. She embodies a favorite Gracious Living quote, “Some people look for a beautiful place. Others make a place beautiful.”
Here is why Cheryl gets our spotlight this week.
Cheryl was hosting a sit down luncheon for a group of friends and setting a beautiful table was important to her. After reading our post “Terrific Tablescapes-From Dollar Store Finds, Cheryl decided to challenge herself to see if she could create her own terrific tablescape with Dollar Store finds. Here is Cheryl’s table.
I’d say that she succeeded! Cheryl’s table is beautiful! The colorful plates that she found at the Dollar Store certainly took her tablescape look up a notch! The plates, imprinted with fall leaves, compliment the warm hues of her tablecloth. They are the perfect focal point for her fall tablescape.
She further enhanced her table with colorful vases that add a pop of color and a bit of fancy! I’m sure her guests appreciated the extra attention to detail. I’m equally sure that they felt the feeling of welcome and hospitality that a beautifully set table evokes.
Cheryl also shared another decorating tip. To further carry out her fall theme, Cheryl used natural elements, to which she added a bit of je ne sais quoi, just a little bit extra, to make them sparkle. She took ordinary pine cones, sprayed them in colors that complimented her fall theme, then added gold accents.
This is what gracious living looks like! Thank you for sharing your tips with us!
