Spring Ruffles

Too many ruffles? Not this Spring. Ruffles are showing their faces, or layers, everywhere.

March is the month to take away the heavy winter layers of drapes, rugs, and dark slipcovers. It's time to add light textures and colors in creams and whites. The perfect way to do this is with fresh layers of ruffles.  


Too many ruffles on the pillow above? I think not!

I could not resisit the vintage ruffles on this pillow by Home Centric.  It will look great on my couch, and it was a great price.   

If you prefer a more tailored look, the pillow below is perfect. A single band of ruffles is very classy.

Are you drooling yet?


How about now?
Use a smaller version of this banquet tablecloth on a side table, entry table, or even a dining room table.  

Ruffles. Need I say more?

Have a blessed day,
Ele

Soooooo pretty! And too many?Never! There's no such THING as too many ruffles! Very feminine (I love girly stuff!) and definitely lightens up anything! I may add ruffles to everything next month. Hmmm ... wonder how my housemate would look with ruffles?

Ele, the ruffles are really pretty, but that table is oh so delicious. Is it okay to borrow your picture to show my friend who is having a small but elegant wedding? I'm helping her with ideas and this looks very appealing. She already has some chocolate brown ruffled table covers as she is going with pale pink and chocolate brown and white. I just got back online. I altered an old Valentine candy box and I think I am getting my creative juices back again. Hugs, Pat :}

I know this is an old post but I had to comment. I would have never known to make lampshade covers, truly unique.
You have a lovely site.
