Lululand’s Tabletop Mandalas
Setting the table with eclectic vintage glassware amps up the appeal of any sit-down occasion, and while I usually cruise Pinterest for inspiration before such an affair, I think I’ve found at least a year’s worth of inspiration in Lula Aldunate’s tabletop mandala series.
Lula Aldunate, aka Lulaland, is the artist behind this beautiful series of mandalas, arranged with coasters, plates, and small bowls on vibrant printed fabrics. Her photo styling skills are out of control, but you might also draw a deeper meaning from this project. Everyday objects like the table settings we sit in front of, when viewed just so, can reflect the spiritual realm of the universe, much like a mandala.
It just goes to show that when you really look for magic, you will find it.
