Another April Cornell Inspired Table


I bought this blue/green/yellow April Cornell tablecloth at the same time as the aqua/orange one. I think everyone knows, by now, that blue/green is my favorite color combination. There were matching napkins so I bought those, too. I have found that some AC napkins run on the smaller side, so I put them on top of bright green napkins. A bright yellow beaded napkin ring held them together.



Trying to keep as much green on the table as possible I used seeded green glassware.


The flatware is a very simple straight line pattern.


The plate stack begins with a white wood charger, green cabbage charger and dinner plate. On top of the dinner plates are green banana leaf salad plates.



The center piece is a cabbage pitcher with sunflowers and spider mums flanked by green wood candle holders.






Thanks for visiting today. Hope you will return next time.

Blue, White And A Burst Of Color!


I have wanted to do another blue and white table for awhile, today seemed like a good day. My husband gave me this colorful bouquet for our wedding anniversary. He knows I don't care for roses, so he told the girls at the florist shop, "just make it bright, my wife loves lots of color!"


The linens are some I had a friend make for me a couple years ago from a shower curtain. She added the floral fabric to make a tablerunner. The napkins are held with a sailor's knot napkin ring. I chose plain patterned flatware to go with this pretty simple tablescape. 


I chose plain woven chargers topped with a simple white dinner plate and a blue/white transferware salad plate. To this I added blue stemware.


The centerpiece  is the colorful bouquet in a cobalt ice bucket that I use as a vase, large transferware bowl filled with porcelain carpet balls and blue candlesticks.









Thank you for visiting today, hope you will return next time.

One Of April's Best!




I think by now everyone knows that my favorite color for tablescapes is aqua, I have mentioned it enough times! The inspiration for this table came from an April Cornell tablecloth I found at TJMaxx back when the weather was still cold, can't say snowy, as we didn't get snow this past winter! This is one of my favorite tables, lots of aqua and orange. I really like this tablecloth, so many nice summer colors.  I paired the cloth with plain aqua napkins.


The plate layer begins with the Pier One white wood chargers, then an orange Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage charger, an aqua Mexcera cabbage dinner plate, and finally a gold kidney shaped Bordallo Pinheiro salad plate. I have also used Hoenig of California aqua apple dishes to hold the rolls.





The glassware is Pioneer Woman can be found at WalMart.




The cute little metal candle holder is from Hobby Lobby last year. I found the aqua candles at Goodwill several years ago


This cute little bowl was found at Goodwill several years ago.

 
I found this aqua pitcher at TJMaxx when I first started blogging in what seems like years ago!





The mums and alstroemeria were the only two orange bouquets I could find at the market the other day. Surprisingly they look pretty good together.





Thanks for visiting today. I hope you will come back next time.
