The Art of Mixing: New and Old

I am loving this traditional Eddie Ross tablescape.
I believe in mixing. Old and New. High and Low.

Monogram China: New but old. You can never go wrong with classic. Worth the investment.
Cobalt Blue glasses: Old and affordable. These are from Etsy but you could score a super cheap set from your local flea market or estate sale.
Crate and Barrel Wine glasses: They add a modern edge to a traditional table.
Target Tablecloth: Cheap. A good linen is hard to find.
Milk Glass Goblets: Another flea market find that can make a table scape.
David Hicks Napkins: Get a fun fabric transformed into some napkins. This adds more modern to the traditional table.


  1. Love this table and the grogeous monograms.

  2. I love the blue glass & milk glass goblets. They are the perfect contrasting touches to the table.

  3. I can't wait until I can have some monogrammed china!! Love the milk glass as well!

  4. I'm thinking about starting a ginger jar collection. Love blue and white together!

  5. What a fabulous tablescape! I agree with you- I love mixing a little old and new.

  6. He is the tablescape master isn't he? Love everything he does. Thanks for breaking it down in this post! P.S. I tagged you in an 11 question blog tag post here. No pressure obviously but it was actually kinda fun :)
