No. 1: Be a Collector
“I am a strong believer in a collected look and like to incorporate antiques and vintage items into my decor.” That philosophy is applied to her tablescapes in which she incorporates natural style, fresh flowers, and greens from her yard. She believes firmly in using what you have on hand to create a custom look at home.
No. 2: Shop Your Yard
This lovely fall tablescape with paisley print linens and woven placemats was created in conjunction with Cindy’s project design series, and you can find more details and sources for it in this post. Since she has a wonderful large garden, most of the flowers for the centerpiece were sourced from it.

No. 5: Desperation Can Yield Inspiration
The beautiful tablescape below is the result of pure desperation, according to Cindy. “I used wicker bottles I had on hand and added greens from my olive trees.” The napkin rings? The designer transformed Christmas ornaments scored at Walmart! This creative dynamo is giving us all permission to allow desperation to nudge us into creativity whether we are short on time or budget!
