A Cool Grey Table

We have had far too many days of 100°+ weather I haven't felt like doing anything, much less set a table! I have used a grey and gold table cover so I rounded up a few dishes in the same colors.














Next week I promise to try to get a decent table set!

Thanks for taking the time to visit this week.

I will be joining Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish.

Hi Marigene,
Well, I think that's a very decent table setting. Beautiful dishes and table cloth. Love the border on those plates.

We got .43 inches of rain last nite, did you get any?

Hi Marigene!

Gosh... I was getting worried about you, good to see you! I hope it cools down soon... I have to remember not all of the country has AC... do you?

I think the rim shot is always my favorite part of your posts. I like to see the details :)

That's a very different color combo! It looks good together.
The tablecloth is so pretty, love the patterned china too!
It is pouring here, boomers! The kids will be stuck in the house!
Thanks for linking to Let's Dish! Hope it cools off for you!

Whaddya mean a decent table next week??!?!! What's wrong with this one? Silly head! I have no idea how I missed your post via Cuisine Kathleen's party. I thought I hit every one of those. Hmmmm...I need to pay more attention. This is a super duper table because you were able to pick up the hues of the table covering in your dishes. Gray is not one of those colors that is easy to work with, but you've slapped it into submission! :-)

Elaine said...

I love the combination of colors you used. Very cool and elegant! The tablecloth is so unique and makes the perfect backdrop for your beautiful dishes!

I'd like to say that cooler weather is on the way, but we will have another week of hot, dry weather. :(
