Another White Dish Challenge!


This week is Kathleen's challenge is to do a table with just white dishes and one other color for accessories. I think I may have met it!

I started with a hand crocheted table topper that I have had for awhile.

I layered white dishes starting with an extra large dinner plate and ending with a soup bowl.

The water glass is from TJMaxx and the wine stem from Pier One Imports.

The purple handled flatware was found in a flyer that was in the Sunday paper several months ago. If I remember correctly it is from Brylane Homes.

The napkins were a gift from my friend, Norma and the grape napkin holders are from Savers. I head to the pegboards where they display napkin rings before I even check out the dishes these days. I think I may have more napkin rings than dishes...those baskets next to the hutch are filled with them. I may need to find another one at the rate I have finding new ones!


The centerpiece is a white pedestal from TJMaxx filled with plum/green beaded fruits I bought at Savers a month ago. I thought they would be great on a fall table...so here they are. The amethyst/gold candle holders are some I found at the thrift store a couple years ago.






Thanks for taking time to visit today, it is very much appreciated. Please come back next time...

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

Gorgeous, Marigene! Purple flatware AND glassware -- be still, my heart! And everything looks extra-special set on that lovely crocheted tabletopper. You did a great job "shopping your house," too!

I love the use of purple with the white Marigene! I didn't get a table set for the challenge although, if reversed, my Canadian Thanksgiving Table might have worked LOL!

This table setting makes me feel calm and relaxed. Maybe it is the colors. Everything ties in so well together, and mom will be happy the napkins worked for you. Have a great day - Sue Z.

I have probably said this before, but I'll say it again. I love when you use purple since I have none! Love this table Marigene.

Diane said...

We were thinking the same this week - I did purple and white, too! I love your stemware and flatware - such fun to see how you used your purple. You did meet the challenge!!

The beautiful crocheted tablecloth is a lovely background for the challenge table. Your stack of white china is so pretty with the crowning beauty of the embossed bowl. I love your purple flatware and especially the gorgeous goblets. Have a lovely fall week!

Thanks for taking the challenge.

I just love that crocheted table cloth - it is beautiful. Your plate stack has some fabulous textured edges. The flatware and stemware are perfect compliments for a wonderful table.

Shades of purple are so great for Fall, Marigene. You know that crocheted table covering is one that I just love. Great job on meeting the challenge.

Lulu said...

I see you had no problem at all meeting Kathleen's challenge. I am crazy about your crocheted table cloth.

Thank you for stopping by with your kind words at my blog Marigene. I love the amethyst color with white. I did a pretty table for my DIL in purple and white and I searched for pretty amethyst wine glasses to no avail. Yours are beautiful The whole table is lovely. The crocheted tablecloth is the perfect final touch in my eyes.

Cathy said...

Love all the different patterns on the white plates. I think I make need to find purple glasses as really like all the purple.

Hi Marigene, your table is just luscious! I find purple to be so appealing, and grapes make the perfect accent. I am coveting those bowls! Elaine

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

I love the lace and the color. Everything is so well coordinated and very very pretty.

Entertaining Women said...

I'm so glad that you used amethyst as your accent color. I kept gazing at my amethyst goblets, and I just couldn't ever get "there." Your table is lovely, and the plum colors add such incredible richness. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

Kathleen said...

Beautiful! Love those bowls, and those candle sticks are so different. You did a great job on the centerpiece too. I think your Savers is better than the one an hour from me, but I did find 2 sets of napkin rings there.
Thanks for taking the challenge at Let's Dish. I think the lights are out for the whites!

Sam Schaefer said...

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Very nice job! Love the dishes you chose and your 2nd color! You did a great job of making this feel fall like- love the grapes! The crocheted tablecloth was a great start and a very nice piece! The purple flatware is a surprise- I don't think I've seen that color before. I'll have to check out Brylane!

Red Couch Recipes said...

Marigene, I love the plum-my color that you used. I don't have a lot of stemware, and yours is beautiful! I love the intricate bowls too, and the flatware fits just perfectly on this table! Love it. Joni

You did meet the challenge. Great choice for a fall tablescape with purple stemware and fruit napkins and centerpiece. I love the piece of lace. Such a lost art that is to be savored.

Your table is so pretty...the lavender is gorgeous with those dishes! The tablecloth is so pretty too, did you make it? I love the texture it adds to the entire tablescape.

Of course I am going to love both of those glasses, the flatware and the napkins! White really sets any color off beautifully doesn't it. I think it just is perfect with your beautiful purples!
