Decorating with Stamped Books

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I was the winner of a recent Show Us Your Summer Tablescapes hashtag contest. (go here to see that tablescape).  My prize was a set of stamped stacked books by Jamie at French Country Cul de Sac.  I was very excited to receive these last week and set to work play designing a vignette around them.



The book stack I received had Fresh Cut Flowers stamped on the spines and I thought the wording was perfect for summer.

I decided to use the books as a backdrop for assembling elements for what might be a ladies afternoon get-together.

Of course, fresh cut flowers were a must and I picked up a bouquet of light pink roses and incorporated some fresh greenery from our backyard.

White plates, gold forks and a little birdie were placed in front.

I've had these pink candles from Pier 1 for awhile now and they were the perfect shade to match the roses.

This white birdie sits atop the book stack.

White cloth napkins were placed in a wire basket next to the plates.

A white lantern with a faux candle inside was tucked in near the roses.

I placed the entire vignette on a green & white striped beach towel which served as a tablecloth.

Near the back of the display, I placed some champagne flutes which would be perfect for some pink champagne.

I had such fun putting together this vignette to showcase these lovely stamped books.

My mind is already thinking ahead to how I'll decorate with them next time as of course, it doesn't have to be with roses...

Do you have a set of stamped books? 
If you'd like to get some, Jamie over at French Country Cul de Sac on Instagram has a variety of them for sale so head on over!

Thanks for visiting!

Looks just lovely. I'd enjoy coming to a ladies afternoon.
What did you put the books on? is it just a whitepainted box?

Congratulations, Lori! I KNEW I had seen these books somewhere recently!!! I'm so happy you won! And you've created the prettiest vignette here... sigh! I love soft pinks and white (my favorite colors for decorating these past number of years). Thank you for sharing at SYS this week. I'll be featuring your post at Share Your Style #218 next Wednesday, thank you!

Lovely,
