Is Purple Just For Royalty?
Another week has passed and it is time to join Susan at Between Naps On The Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Thank you for hosting my favorite weekly meme, Susan.

Is purple just for royalty...I hardly think so, as it is on my table this week! I have been trying, for awhile now, to find enough dishes to do a purple table. I have had a hard time finding anything in purple that I thought I could live with, but think there is enough here to do a decent tablescape.
The table before the flowers were cut.
Plum dinner plate used as a charger plate.
Close-up of pattern.
Two shades of purple/lavender stemware.
Flowers from my yard...the day lilies are about done, these are the end of the season scrawny ones...a week or so ago, they were huge. I have also used the gooseneck loosestrife, again, purple coneflowers, lavender buddleia, white coneflowers, beebalm, and something dark magenta, can't remember the name of it, but when cut it has a strong onion smell, so it is probably in the allium family, but really small.
