Brunch Tablescape (Pottery Barn Mystery Box Challenge)

Recently I was given the very cool opportunity to participate in a friendly competition created by one of my favorite retailers, Pottery Barn.

The challenge was to design a tablescape for a party of four inspired by a "Mystery Box" of Pottery Barn products- um, yes! sign me up!  I was so anxious to see what we would receive and giddy when the packages arrived last month.



Talk about Christmas in July for this little kid . . .


and for Mama! Yeah, I get to keep the goods- and there's a chance for you to win them all too! :)


I was also given $50 to shop for additional decor and/or food for the party. 

I bought a fun black and white polka dot fabric to create a tablecloth and my inspiration flowed from there.  I decided to use the black and white with pops of bright orange and pink, paired with my black and gold chevron plates and cups that I already owned. 


I'm excited to share the final result with you!










Here's the roundup of how I used the Pottery Barn products in my Girlfriends Brunch Tablescape:


1. Great White 3-Tier Stand

2.  Claro Cake Stand

3.  Glass Display Pillar Hurricane Small & PB Votive Candle, Large (Set of 12)

4.  Glass Display Taper Cup Hurricane & PB Taper Candle, 12" (Set of 2, White)

5.  Glass Display Votive Cup Hurricane & PB Pillar Candle, 3x6" (Set of 2, White)

6.  Glass Punch Bowl

7.  Montana Small Bowl

8.  Great White Coupe Serve Bowls (Set of 3)

9.  Linen Hemstitch Dinner Napkin (Set of 6, White)

10.  Great White Dinner Plate (Set of 4)


Also participating in the Pottery Barn challenge are:


Nicole Baclh (Making It Lovely)
Elka Carl (CasaSugar)
Shelley Coates (How Does She?)
Laura Trevey (Bright Bold Beautiful)

You can vote for your favorite tablescape on Pottery Barn's Facebook Page and the winner will receive a $500 Pottery Barn gift card.

If you like my tablescape the best, I am shamelessly asking for your VOTE.  


Three lucky voters will also WIN the same Pottery Barn Mystery Box package, containing all the items used for the challenge! 

Voting is open from August 9-20.

The winner will be announced August 21.

Thank you so much for your support!
