tablescape envy

House Beautiful does tablescapes the way that House & Garden did vanities (if you can't recall that feature, click here!). Surely you've noticed one of HB's gorgeously dressed tables before - always guest-curated by someone fabulous, they're show-stopping. The two above, saved from past issues of the magazine, are my favorites. The first was designed by Charlotte Moss and the second by Georgiana Chapman + Keren Craig of Marchesa. Are you swooning yet? In her feature, Charlotte Moss had some food for thought that I simply had to highlight: "My mother always said, 'knock yourself out or don't bother.' If you're not entertaining yourself and your guests, why bother?" Touché, Ms. Moss. I couldn't agree more :)

I don't think I'd be able to stand on both feet at the site of that Marchesa table-how gorgeous!! And your weekends sound heavenly, even if there's no breakfast in bed!
