Wheat Sheaves Against The Azure Sky


This table topper caught my eye several months ago...reminded me of the wheat fields just before they are cut. The gold against the bright azure sky.


Tiny polka dotted napkins are held with blue/white ceramic rings.


The plate stack begins with an octagonal charger, then a Vera Bradley dinner plate (yes, I did use the VB chargers last week!), a Fred Meakin salad plate and finally a Bordallo Pinheiro dessert plate.




My favorite flatware by Oxford Hall Wear Ever in blue, which is a recent eBay purchase.


The glassware is a gorgeous shade of blue wine stem from the Dollar Store. I love the shape of them, as well as the color.



The centerpiece is a bowl of fresh vegetables and pitchers of basil.





Thanks for visiting today...hope you will come back next time. Have a wonderful weekend!

Vera Meets April!


The inspiration for this table was the April Cornell tablecloth I found at HomeGoods a couple months ago. It is blue, green and cream.


The solid periwinkle napkins are held with a dragonfly napkin ring.


I have used a blue Vera Bradley charger, green BP cabbage leaf dinner plate, blue salad plate from Target and a green BP cabbage leaf soup bowl.





The flatware is Oxford Hall Fashion Wear...they call it lime...I have to disagree with them, it isn't lime by any means...more like a grass or leaf green.


The glassware is Artland Iris in light green.


The centerpiece is a cake pedestal filled with candles...how much simpler can it get.


The rim shot.



Thanks for taking the time to visit today...hope you will return the next time.

Amethyst, Emerald and Sapphire


I am concentrating on the amethyst and emerald for this table. The inspiration for this week's table is a gorgeous woven table square...it is mostly purples, greens and blues. I did this table for my friend, Norma's birthday lunch on Monday...her favorite color is purple, so I used as much purple as I could find! The table square is very striking, not sure the photos are doing it justice.


Backside of the table topper.


I recently found a dozen lavender BP cabbage plates on eBay and couldn't pass them up. There are a few colors that are really hard to find; lavender, purple, blue and red. I am always on the lookout for these hard to find colors.



All sides are Bordallo Pinheiro this week. The stack starts with a green dinner plate that is being used as a charger, then the lavender luncheon plate, a purple dessert plate and finally a green soup/salad bowl.


I am using amethyst glassware that I bought at TJMaxx about 5 years ago. I wish they had had more than just the 4.


The flatware is my favorite Oxford Hall Fashion Wear in green...this is a new eBay purchase, also! The napkins are solid purple held with a lilac napkin ring.



The centerpiece is an aqua compote filled with amethyst beaded fruit, black candlesticks and aqua candles.

This is one of my favorite tables of the year...so far!

I will join Anything Blue Friday/The Dedicated House.
