Shabby Chic Rose Styling

My formula for styling.

Keep arranging until it sizzles.

Make it have a lived-in look.

The top is my finished vignette.

I started with some (still) gorgeous

dried white roses.

These were on long stems

from South America.

I couldn't believe how they

dried white/cream and not brown.

I love arranging them in a

heart shape but I also

didn't want them

handled too much by little fists,

so I put them in a vintage pitcher

probably from the 50's

thrift shop purchase 1.00

I like the see through look here.

Then I walked by my rusty

silver platter that I hadn't

put away yet and inspiration hit.

Romantic crystal, candles,

roses and diamonds.

Okay. The "diamonds"

are really glass on a keychain that

I slipped down on the candle.

It cost 2.00

Here is where I stopped.

Doesn't the cream,

silver and white

look charming?

Plus the shimmer even

without the candles lit

gives it a shabby chic style.

Hi Candylei,
roses are my favourite and so I was curious how you decorate with them. Your dried roses are fantastic and each vignette looks really special. Thank you for showing this inspirating post.
Best greetings, Johanna

I love it all. I have NEVER seen white roses dry white and cream and not turn brown or at least gold. GORGEOUS!
