After my busy trip to Italy, I wanted to share a Rome inspired tablescape. Even though Greece is all about blue and white, but there was lots of blue and white in Italy, too!

The most amazing thing I spotted on our drive throughout Italy was the gorgeous fields of sunflowers.  Sunflowers had to be the flower of choice for my table. 

Somewhere around the base of the Spanish Steps in Rome were vendors selling these lovely scarves.  Of course, I immediately thought “table runner”!   
Sunflower yellow Fiesta dinner plates were topped with a variety of of blue and white salad plates.  

Pale yellow stemware including champagne glasses are ready for a celebratory dinner.  
My DIY napkin rings are the perfect compliment to this sunflower tablescape.  You can make your own custom napkin rings to coordinate with any themed table you have planned.

Can you believe how gorgeous these sunflowers are?  I picked these up from my local Publix!  Yes, they are fresh, not faux!
Distressed white chargers set on top of dark blue woven placemats.  Most everything in Rome is aged and these chargers are reminiscent of the ruins of the city.
