eddie ross comes to chicago!

yes, it's true and i will be attending his WOW party this thursday at 7pm.  there may be a few seats left, so if you live in the chicagoland area you should go!

i am a huge fan of his arrangements, which transform a table, event, or room.

i love the simplicity of this one, not to mention the fact that i have a similar bent wood table i recently painted here

i am also repeatedly inspired in the way he turns flea market/thrift store finds into beautiful tablescapes

read more about how he put this together here. oh, btw those napkin rings are made out of earrings!

or how he always seems to add a little whimsy to a beautiful, elegant table

what mother wouldn't want to wake up to this on mother's day morning?

i am generally on the modern side of things, however eddie makes me want to pull out my southern charm spirit and get some fine china for a summer afternoon cocktail party!

i can't wait to meet him thursday and hear what great ideas he has to share with us!  who knows i may be inspired to get out to the flea market and throw one of these tablescapes together...
