Shopping Avec Moi

~ Cake Stands, Cloches, and Baby Chicks ~

Easter weekend will be here before we know it.

In early February, I attended the 

Nashville Antique and Garden Show.

Celebrating its 23rd year, this four day venue offers

shoppers an incredible array of dealers 

of both antiques and horticulture.

Fabulous finds for both home and garden!

Avec Moi, from Franklin, TN, 

just one of the many shops represented,  

was filled with vintage dishes and things for the table.

Green Jadeite with Yellow Tulips 

~ Springtime Perfect ~

Bob Roethemeyer, the proprietor of Avec Moi

knows how to set a gorgeous table.

The use of velvet pumpkins in fantasy colors, 

glitter candles, butterflies on winter branches ~

all played off each other to set 

the tone for this beautiful tablescape.

Love the yummy sherbet colors of this table.

~ Crisp Linens ~ White China ~

 ~ Bejeweled Peacock Napkin Rings~

A Mix of Clear Patterned Glass 

Many gorgeous textures at play on this table.

Loving the fantasy colors.  

Just may need to add a few to my own 

collection of velvet pumpkins.  

More Glittery Napkin Rings

Vintage White Ironstone Tureen

Regret not bringing this one back to Texas.

Mother of Pearl and Silver Serving Pieces

Avec Moi offers a unique shopping experience 

of new and vintage accessories 

for the table along with one of a kind treasures.

Take a tip from this table:

Varying heights of cake stands to elevate a collection such as the velvet pumpkins and mixing in natural elements such as the winter branches makes an interesting centerpiece.
