Simple, Simple, Simple

Another really simple tablescape this week...




Just getting home from a few days vacation I didn't feel like doing a fancy table.

I saw these yellow glass salad/dessert plates at Home Goods and scooped them up thinking they could be used with the sunflower tablecloth I used a few weeks ago. Today I am using them with some April Cornell placemats. The flatware is Oneida Afterglow which was introduced in 1956.




The white dinner plates are Wedgwood Hedge Rose. I topped them with the yellow salad plates.






The green glasssware matches the green in the placemats. I do not know who the maker is.



I chose the napkins for the yellow fleur de lis on one corner. It is about the same bright yellow as the salad plate. The napkin ring is just a simple yellow wooden ring.







Everything on the table came from thrift stores with the exception of the sterling and the yellow glass salad/dessert plates.

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