For me vintage china is at its best when it's mismatched and asymmetrically arranged. There are so many elements of this eclectic tabletop that I love - the paper straws, the gorgeous pink garden roses, the confetti scattered over the doily tablecloth, the pink bows, the streaks of turquoise.... The central cake with its crooked and colourful candles really is the focal point and brings the whole table and vintage/ homemade vibe together. I really admire stylists who can pull off this sort of look. I think making something mismatched and eclectic can be much harder than it looks and often more difficult than working with something that is structured and symmetrical.
So lovely! Makes me want to eat a piece of cake and sip some english breakfast through a paper straw!
