Say “hola” to the month of August! It's time to venture off to a brand new destination, known for mesmerizing coastlines, idyllic mountains, sweeping deserts, DELICIOUS food, & popping colors! We'd like to welcome you to Argentina!
We had “sew" much fun putting this extraordinary & authentic tablescape together. We blended beautiful colors with unique shapes, prevalent in the country of Argentina, & featured on the NEW Sloane backpack pattern for this month's bag! Included with this month's "Around the World" tablescape, are FREE patterns you can incorporate on your next table setting! More below!
We know you had your eye on it - how can you not?! Introducing, the FREE table runner pattern - featuring a gorgeous fringe design, and eccentric shape cutouts, using Canvas and Cork Fabrics. Get this free pattern right here!
You may recognize another FREE & familiar pattern we have featured before. Bring some more creativity to your tablescape with the FREE Circle Placemat pattern! This placemat gives a classic shape, while offering versatility with the option to make it a reversible placemat. Get the free download for these spherical placemats right here, listed in a previous Blog.
We were directly inspired by the entire fabric collection, used in this authentic tablescape. We paired earthy plants and purple flowers with and amber-toned vase to really bring out the colors & designs in the Simple Fabric Napkins, as well as the fringe-table runner. All of these colors compliment one another so well, and really make this a special sight. Browse the whole coordinating "Good Vibes" fabric collection on our site, that was designed by the Argentina-native, Angela Corti for Cotton + Steel.
We added all kinds of foliage in different sized vases and plant holders to make this table really "pop" and catch your eye. The texture on this patio table is a really great bonus! Everywhere you look, you see something new!
What is a tablescape without the delectables? Let's not forget this popular, authentic dish, often featured in nearly any Argentinian restaurant: empanadas! These fresh pockets of dough are simple to make, but absolutely delicious! Choose a protein filling, (usually pork, chicken or beef, but sometimes fish or cheese) to fill the inside, then add your favorite veggies, like corn, diced potatoes or carrots! Add a side dish or two, and you're all set!
Isn't this such a beautiful scene? Create your very own, and get inspired by watching the FREE video tutorial below!
We hope you enjoyed seeing this all come together to create a beautiful masterpiece that you can easily create at home! Keep up with the rest of our Blogs, posts and stories that we share on social media to continue learning with us as we "travel" through the rest of Argentina this month.
Adios, and happy sewing!
