The menu at a recent dinner party hosted by Beth Kirby of Local Milk sounded delectable—stinging nettle and ricotta ravioli, yes please—but it was the tablescape she created with Tennessee textile designer  Margaret Pate  that stopped us in our tracks. In a week that's all about dry gardens, we're looking to her collection of low-water plants and her eclectic dining room as inspiration.  Photographs courtesy of Beth Kirby at Local Milk  unless otherwise noted. Here are a few key pieces needed to recreate the look: Above: Beth's tablescape was inspired by the Margaret Pate scarf she used as a tablerunner. A summer-weight version of the  Luca Scarf  is available at her shop Inks and Thread for $105. Above:   Photograph by Blue Ridge Kitties . To hide an unslightly light fixture, Beth and Margaret festooned the chandelier with honeysuckle. If you don't have honeysuckle growing in your neck of the woods, consider planting the non-invasive  Red Trumpet Honeysuckle . A 1-gallon pot is available from Gardener Direct for $19.95. (For another honeysuckle-laden design, see  Design Sleuth: A Very Green Garage .) Above: The light-relfecting  Howard Elliot Madison Round Mirror  is available at Arcadian Home for $257.99. Above: The  Robert Abbey Bone Triple Ceramic Buffet Lamp is $308.91 from Lamps Plus. Above: The  Madeleine Side Chair is on sale for $99 at Restoration Hardware.   Above: A Rustic Terra Cotta Cylinder in Moss Grey is available at Greige for $26.   Above: For a red-hued pot, the Aged Terra Cotta Pot is $8.98 from Soiree Supply. Hankering for a DIY? Transform Terra Cotta Pots into Instant Antiques . Above: We love succulents, but we're especially impressed with Beth's assortment of pint-sized cacti. The Terrarium Cactus Collection  from Terrain can provide you with your own instant collection for $35.  Above: Beth served her version of  Lavender Soda in recycled glass bottles. A similar  Korken clear glass bottle is $3.99 from Ikea. For an entirely different take on our favorite glass bottles, see 10 Easy Pieces: Bottle Vases .
