I used patches of moss to create the length of a table runner for the scene. I wanted something that would add a bit of volume to the table and some depth and this was perfect. Plus, it’s so easy to store. All you have to do is pile it up in a bucket and leave it outside.
Set the arrangements on some antique books. This provided such a lovely elevation to the scene. You’ll want to create a pattern of objects where some are higher and some are lower. I found them to be the perfect way to create the height.
I’ve been wanting some gold flatware ever since I first saw them popping up a couple of years ago around the web. They are gorgeous. And such a scene stealer. I’ve been using them ever since and though they can only be washed by hand, I’m still a huge fan.
