Easy Elegance for Your Table
Gaye chose a vibrant shade of turquoise to accent her table setting. It's a trendy color that instantly updates the most traditional tableware. With a white tablecloth in place, she fills turquoise glass cube vases with white cyclamen plants and arranges them in the center of the table. Between the vases she sets pairs of silvery glass candlesticks containing tall turquoise candles. Place cards are supported by artichokes that are coated with silver spray paint.
To enjoy cyclamen blooms for several weeks, keep the plants cool and slightly dry; don't overwater them.
