Get The Look Party Series

Get The Look {Modern French Country}



The neighborhood we will moving to is aesthetically very different from the city life we are leaving behind.  Where we are surrounded by sky scrapers and old industrial buildings now, we will soon be surrounded by Hampton(esque) cape cods and traditional shingle style homes and center hall colonials.  The vibe is very similar to what you’d find in areas like the Hampton. Except that with the emergence of so many New York City transplants and  young modern families a more modern french country feel is what you’ll see more of.  This inspired this week’s Get The Look.  Let’s throw a Modern French Country affair shall we?

Bringing in simple plain dishes and pairing them with a toile like pattern as in this classic blue hued serving plate automatically gives this design a feel of modern french country.

I’d stick with aged metal silverware or for an even bolder statement these gold baroque utensils would be so chic and so on trend.

Creating height with either vintage milk crates or ornate cake stands creates visual interest.

Flowers in ceramic pitchers can be used as centerpieces and will give the tablescape a cohesive look and a feel of simpler times. This DIY Floral Recipe will help you with your flower arranging.

Having a personalized DIY project makes guests feel special.  This is a very simple project that will have guests feeling the french country love.
