Another Green Fix!
It is time, once again, to join the rest of the tablescapers for eye candy to get us through another week of beautiful tables.
This week my inspiration came from a platter, a pitcher and metal candlestick, all in green, which by now everyone knows is my favorite color. This is a very simple table this week, no frills, not even a tablecloth.
The pitcher and 16-inch platter were found taped together at Savers for only $6.99. As soon as I spotted these on the lowest shelf mixed in with flower pots I knew they were Bordallo Pinheiro before I ever turned them over. I have no clue what the patterns are on either piece, but know they are not a set.
I started with a rattan-like charger, added a white Gibson dinner plate, which were $2.99 for a set of 4. I then added a green salad plate, a birthday gift from my friend, Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen a few years ago. I topped the salad plate with a plain white soup bowl. The soup bowls were 25¢ each at ARC Thrift Store a couple of years ago.
The glassware I have had for years, not sure where I bought it.
The green and white napkins have been around for eons, too.
The centerpiece started with green 17" tall metal candlesticks, found at Savers for $5.99 each, which is more than I usually like to pay, but, they were green! I used the platter, added those cute little white mini pumpkins with a handful of pecans...hey, I told you I would get mileage from those pumpkins!
Sorry the photos are so dark, it was a rainy day when I took most of them...it later cleared up and the sun came out.
