Yellow And Green



I have been going to do this table for a couple of weeks, but just didn't get around. I saw some corn plates on a blog (forgot which one, of course). I really didn't know there were corn plates out there, but shouldn't be surprised. I hopped on eBay and found some little ones. I have added them to my corn collection. The corn harvest has just ended in my area...of course, I didn't have my camera with me when we passed by the big green and yellow farm machinery hard at work in the fields.



 I started building the table with green square placemats after selecting the dishes.


The napkins are a solid yellow held with a green napkin ring. I thought the perfect flatware would be the vintage, circa early 1970's, yellow handled Oxford Hall Fashion Wear flatware I found at Saver's couple months ago. I just love the chunkiness of the handles!

The pale yellow dinner plate is topped with an apple green salad plate. At the top of the meager stack is a small corn plate. The corn plates are made by Terrace Ceramics, Marietta, Ohio (one of the plates still had the maker's sticker on it). I believe they were from the 1950's and 1960's.


I debated on whether to use yellow or green glassware...felt the yellow would fade into the table so pulled out green Artland bubble glass.

Other pieces of my collection that I have used on the table are someone's vintage ceramic covered dish casserole, salt/pepper set, candle holder and small pitcher. I have several other pieces, but the table just isn't big enough! 




Thank you for taking the time to visit today. I enjoy hearing from everyone. Have a wonderful week...

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

What a bright, snazzy table this week. Love the contrast of the bare (wood) table with the setting. You sure have an eye for what looks/goes good together. An eye-catcher for sure.

Hi, Marigene. I saw your comment at Diane's (Confessions of the Obsessed) and came right over, because I haven't connected with you for quite a while. Boy, am I glad I did...I've had a corn table in the works for two years now--even have pictures of the corn growing, and just haven't been able to get around to it. Yours turned out great.I don't have the plates, but I have other pieces to work with, then I'll be selling them, but I really want to do a table first. I can't believe the flatware--it's absolutely perfect for this table...now I want some too! They remind me of the yellow corn holders. Perfect! ~Zuni

Great tablescape....I feel bad now that I had a wonderful collection of Fitz and Floyd corn ceramics that were fabulous and for some strange reason I sold it all on E-bay years ago....I think I might have one or two pieces left...And I had gotten it all for cheap at one of their warehouse sales...such a dope :)

Judy Biggerstaff said...

Great inspiration for the harvest season. Your corn plates are a great addition to your corn collection. You have several unique pices such as the casserole for your centerpiece. Nice find on the flatware too. Take care.

What a great harvest of corn Marigene! You have quite the corny collection! It is all so bright and fresh, you can almost taste fresh summer corn. Love that tureen and the square place mats!
