Megan from Real Weddings – (an Australian-based magazine that recently launched a shiny new website!) –  sent over some beautiful inspiration to share from one of their photo shoots.

These images are from an “Entertain at Home” feature that was a collaboration between British fashion designer Jasper Conran and Waterford Crystal.

The tablescape & party decor was designed to coordinate with Conran’s Chinoiserie tableware (see below), and boasts a lovely palette of soft greens, purples, and periwinkle blues. Would this look be great for an Easter or Mother’s Day brunch?!

I’m especially loving the gorgeous floral arrangements, which feature Delphinium, Lily of the Valley, Blue Bells, and Cornflowers
