Who Doesn't Like Lavender and Lime?



This week I decided to do something which I could use lavender from the front yard as the centerpiece...hunted through the dishes and linens to see if there was anything compatible. I found a table runner and napkins with the same colors. The plates, I found tucked into the corner of the dish armoire. I had forgotten about the lavender charger plates I found last fall at Goodwill.



The lime green and white placemats are some that Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen sent me a couple months ago. I have been itching to use them in a Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch.


The placesetting consists of the lavender charger, a white dinner plate, salad plate, dessert plate and a white and plum saucer which we will use for the rolls.


The saucer has a tiny fruit center.


The glassware is a water/iced tea and a wine stem in amethyst.


Plate rims.


Lavender centerpiece.

I love the lavender and lime green! I have some placemats that I found at a thrift and since lavender isn't a color I have lots of I haven't done the tablescape yet. This has inspired me. Love the chargers they set off the white plates perfectly. Those place mats are to die for! Great job as always.
hugs, Linda

For a minute I was thinking you were a most clever lady to have crocheted the placemats. Then, I would have been really envious! You've done a great job combining colors.

Jacqueline said...

I adore your lavender and lime. What pretty lavender you have. I didn't realize how many different varieties there are. Of course, my favorites are the glassware and the purple transferware plates. Just gorgeous.

Tim Gronek said...

Excellent choice of colors. I would very much like to dine at this table. Very inviting.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

There must be a secret to raising Lavendar because I tend to lose mine. Not enough water? Too much..I don't know.

Your dishes are lovely and I love the lime colored ones.
Storage is a problem for me...so I haven't been doing the table scapes.
Loved the sea shells too!! Very interesting placemats. Not the usual and I liked that too.
