Inspired by the colors in her grandmother's Yo- Yo pillow, Candy of The Little Round Table created a beautifully decorated vintage inspired tablescape..

Candy's cherished pillow was made with 64 Yo-Yo's which combine variety of delightful and colorful patterns. The meticulously made pillow is trimmed with a wide buttery calico ruffle.
Always looking for inspiraton for her wonderful table top displays, Candy decided to use Grandma's pillow as her template for decorating the table show here.
