Elephants + Glitter-Dipped Lemons? That’s right! And if you think this combo may seem a bit MAD, well fantastic… because that’s kind of the point. ;)

You see, when MADHOUSE by Michael Aram asked me to dream up 4 tablescapes inspired by their new tableware collections, I went especially crazy for Lemonwood. High contrast colors, bold graphics, and a hint of metallic gold… everything about the Lemonwood collection makes a statement, and for me it said: “Bring on the SUNSHINE and {grown up} lemonade! And do it with a bit of retro-mod flair while you’re at it.” The paper Lemonwood items weren’t available at the time of my shoot, but just imagine all the outdoor fun you could have with these beauties too:


Wouldn’t this look be fabulous for an outside-the-box summer dinner party or wedding shower? Whatever the occasion may be, I just love the idea of surprising guests with unexpected details – like mini elephants bearing sparkly gifts, for example!


And speaking of unexpected… if you haven’t heard of MADHOUSE before, that’s probably because they are BRAND NEW. In fact, HWTM is the very first place you’ll see this line of upscale melamine, fine paper tableware, and Tritan™ drinkware in action! And as someone that’s seen their fair share of entertaining products, I can say with complete confidence that the product quality is amazing.

I’ll be sharing 4 totally different MADHOUSE inspired tablescapes with you this week (2 today + 2 tomorrow) – followed by a fun Pinterest contest opportunity coming Thursday that involves your own creative spin + the chance to fill your table with well over $500 worth of your favorite MADHOUSE products. So feel free to start dreaming about what statements your dream table would make! But before you do that… scroll down to check out all of my own Lemonwood inspired table details, followed by a yummy Champagne Lemonade Recipe + links to download the matching party printables for free!

2. In a pitcher, combine cooled syrup with lemon juice and remaining 2 cups of water. Mix well. Pour into stemware and garnish with a lemon slice. CHEERS!
