Foyer Tabletops

Hello all! I am finally back and I have missed you all. And I got back just in time for Tabletop Tuesday (Yippee!!), which is hosted by Marty at http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/. To see more creative table creations, go check out her blog and her participants.

Since I did not have much time to prepare for this but still wanted to participate, I will just show you our foyer as it is, I have not spring-i-fied it yet. I am not sure if I will have time to decorate for Easter cause most of my Easter stuff are still in the attic. It will depend if our maintenance guy stops by soon. I do have 2 wooden bunnies on the floor but they are there all year round.

Below is the cabinet that you will see as you enter the front door. The mirror has a black slate frame which matches the black slate floor. Here is a little peek into the formal living room.



On the table is a Lladro figurine called "Karina". She is 17 inches tall. I place the 2 teapot candle holders there when they are not being used on the dining table, also the orchid. On the right side of the cabinet is a Limoges plate with Madonna and Child by Raphael and a pair of Meissen figurines.
This cabinet doubles as my storage for napkin rings in the top drawer.

The bottom cabinet contains various plate chargers, flatware sets, place card holders and more napkin rings.
Across the cabinet is a Buddha fountain, a wooden bunny and Bird of Paradise with bamboos flower arrangement.
The sound of the water is relaxing as it welcomes you.

Next to the door is a cherub on a columnar pedestal, another bunny and a faux palm which my hubby watered while I was in Florida. See how healthy it is? LOL!
Across from the cherub is a bench and an elephant planter with another faux plant. I used to have real plants here but everytime I water them, the water runs into the floor and messes up the floor. And it is not easy to clean and wax black slate floors. The water turns it white. So, I replaced the real plants with faux, for practicality.
Thanks for your visit and thanks, Marty for hosting this event. I wanted to join Teatime Tues and Tuesday Tea For 2 also but ran out of time to set up a tea table. But I plan to link my Tablescape Thursday with them.
