Red And Green...No It Isn't Christmas, Yet!


I am sorry I only got to a few entries last week...my computer contracted a virus...I think I have it taken care of, finally.

Last week I had luncheon for a small group. The tablecloth was my inspiration. 



For something different I decided to do red charger plates with green and white accents.



I used the Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage salad plates and a broccoli mug for the corn chowder.



The chowder was served from the cutest broccoli soup tureen. The plates, mugs and tureen were a gift from my friend, Jo Jo. I use them every chance I get!





The glassware is Ivima 1895 and the flatware is Oneida Louisiana.






Thanks for taking the time to visit. Please come back the next time.

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

I would use those gifts from Jo Jo every chance, too, Marigene. What fun to serve soup from that beautiful tureen and to eat it from those darling soup mugs!

Love the combo and not a trace of Christmas! Love the veggie accents, those mugs are perfect for the soup! xo

Mmmmm...corn chowder! I haven't had that in awhile. Sounds absolutely delicious!!! Having it served out of those super cute mugs was a great idea!

This table in no way takes on a Christmas flair even though the predominant colors are red and green. You did a really good job of using those strong primary colors without bringing an unintended feel of the holidays to the party.

Sorry your computer was sick. It SUCKS when that happens. I wish all these idiots out there producing and spreading these viruses would all jump off the edge of the earth!

Have a great weekend, and take care of yourself!!! Enjoy this extended "cool spell" we have going on! :-)

Oh Marigene, what a pretty lunch table! You just proved that red & green don't have to mean Christmas. I love your Bordallo Pinheiro plates and the broccoli mugs. I've never seen the mugs before!

You know you had me at color! I think I used to have a tablecloth like that, and I miss it. As I recall, I used it so much I wore it out. Everything is put together so well, and I love the "vegetable" motif.

Lady of the Manor said...

I love those green dishes!! I know your guests enjoyed the corn chowder, too. May have to make some soon myself! Have a wonderful week!

Patty said...

Love your special dishes from JoJo. The chowder sure sounds yummy!
