Less Words Wednesday: I may leave you speechless, or Vignette anyone?

Those who know me know this isn’t my thing but hey, it’s worth a try so here is my efforts for Beth’s party.  You can find the experts over at her place.

I started with this:

It wasn’t doing much for me, so I added a few items to create a theme:

And then I got full of myself and went overboard:

And after this was all done I decided the candles looked dumb but I was too lazy to set the whole damn thing up again.

Can you feel my enthusiasm?

    I am so there with you! I have random beautiful things placed, or hidden, all over my home.

    That was an interesting experiment. I especially like the effect in the second photo. In any case, it's kind of a learning experience, playing with color and form and texture. Cool.

    The second photo is just right…I know how you feel…it takes me a day or two to put up a display and get it right.

    Uh, not your thing??? Is that like me giving you a compliment on your ball gown and you saying, "What..this old thing?" Girl, you did great. I love the overboard pic. I'm all about lots of stuff going on in my vignettes!

    Haha, I wouldn't have been able to stop with the 3rd! I was already imagining the napkins all spread out with plates on them, silverwear, and wine glasses! I like the color combo :)

    I think your second try is the best. I like to add things and remove…that usually works! Don't give up. Just look at it for awhile and you'll know!

    Hope to be in the party next time…I was a little late!

    Great color combination. My favorite is just the yellow and white.

    Frugal Vicki: I would have to say MOST of my beautiful things are hidden. It was fun to pull a few things out for this.

    Thanks Kim and yes, lazy would be an apt description.

    B-O-G Learning experience yes. I think I learned more about lighting and my camera than I did about the essential theme.

    Sandra: I had about 20 minutes to do this (fortunately the yellow flowers were leftovers and I clearly just threw the carnations in a jug) all before I had to pick up my daughter after work.

    Beth: I was lucky to be working with some favorite colors/items that were easy to get to. The next one may not be as put together (though I'm already thinking about it.)

    Sweet and Sassy: thank you. I thought I might have dumbfounded most everyone. I seriously thought this would come off as amateurish as I felt.

    [email protected]: Girl, I took more! And if I hadn't been on a time constraint, there would have been the grandmother's silver, some fancy flutes and who know what other over the top stuff I would have thrown on that table.

    Blondie: Yes, I think I knew when to stop. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's future efforts.

    Red Door: Fortunately, I have quite of bit of both which made this easier than I expected. Thank you Grandma In Law for the gorgeous china!

    Vic, when I read about this "party" I knew this was what I would do. Plus, I needed the pick-me-up this color combo provided.

    OWO: Will you play along next time? Yours can be an early Cinco de Mayo theme!?!?!?!

    Red Shoes: I won't tell a soul you were here. Our little secret.

    Well I think you are very good at it. I love the second one. I am all for less is more so version number three was a bit much for my taste.
    But please keep on doing this, I love to see it.
