Artful Tablescapes for Mosaic Monday

Following the theme of”Rhythms” at  the Canada Blooms event this year the booths were decorated with the “Juno” vibe.   It may be possible to read the signs at the back (by clicking on the mosaic) to tell you who won the Juno for any particular year and what the colour scheme was for that year.   It goes back 40 years so even I reminisced about some of the groups and singers I idolized at the time.    In the Garden Hall were tablescapes too with beautiful arrangements made by various garden club members.  The picnic table was in one of the gardens. Had to include it as I love a picnic in the summer. 

Music mosaic

Music was a large part of the displays.  Top left was a piano in the Tribute to Oscar Peterson.  Apparently this amazing musician loved to play his piano out on his patio in summer. Wouldn’t you have loved to be his neighbour?  CDs/DVDs were used as a display in the main gallery as you came into the show.  In one of the gardens “ A Symphony of Delight” was a pond made to look like a piano with hand carved stone to make the keyboard. The last was a design in the garden halls to fit the vision of the show.

Thanks to Mary at Dear Little Red House for hosting Mosaic Monday each week.    See you there.   Have a great week.  Valerie

Those were fun but I couldn't get the picture big enough. Clicking on it just doesn't get it big enough.

What fun it must have been to see all the displays!
Oscar Peterson played at the convocation for Carleton University in 1973 - I'll never forget it!

All very nice and my favorite is the picnic table, which just appeals to my sensibilities. I'm glad that you included it as it appealed to yours, too.

I loved all the bright and cheery tablescapes and picnice table setting. The flower piano is so pretty.

In regards to your next post --I think Blogger has been having some photo display problems lately...I've seen the same problem on a few other blogs. Hope they clear it up soon!

Canada Blooms looks like an incredible exhibition! I am impressed! A pond made to look like a piano! WOW!

I posted some photos from the Home and Garden Show here in Edmonton.

I am having format problems on two of my blogs. I hope it's just a glitch.

Shirley said...

I think my photos are showing up fine. At least I haven't heard anything to suggest otherwise and on my end they are. What I and a few other bloggers are experiencing is the move of our side panel to the bottom of the blog and our headers missing. Anyone else having this problem?
