Still On A Kick...


Still on a blue/green kick, sorry if you are bored with it. I am sure you have seen all of these dishes at one time or another. This week's tablescape inspiration came from the tablecloth. It is yellow, teal and periwinkle.


I have used a black woven charger. The next layer is a green Bordallo Pinheiro Geranium Leaf plate topped with a blue Vera Bradley dinner plate. To the VB plate I have added a white Alfred Meakin plate, unknown pattern. The final layer is Copeland Valencia cream soup, which is used for the salad.





The glassware is a teal water stem and the tiny aqua is for a wee bit of wine!


The flatware is Oneida Louisiana. The aqua hemstitched napkin is linen.


I tried 2 different floral center pieces...yellow/pink roses and dark rose climbers...both from my yard. I have a pure yellow, but it is just budding, unfortunately. The peonies have gone by, so I couldn't use them. Just about the time they get to looking beautiful the rain and wind does them in!



The rim shot!





Thanks for taking the time to visit today...do hope you will visit again the next time.

Love all the bright, vibrant colors you've been using lately. This sure made my day….it's a gloomy and gray day outside.

Love the blue/green kick and thanks for brightening up a very dreary, rainy day.

Love the teal/aqua glasses.....they make the table as far as I'm concerned! but the bright yellow certainly is a welcome sight as it's gray and miserable here!
Love you,
Jude

Oh I am simply in love with it all - every single piece and color. Glorious spring colors to cheer for those few remaining rainy days. And the cabbage plate - it is a good thing I don't get invited to your luncheons (I'm sure that living clear across the country from you has something to do with that) - but I might be tempted to slip a cabbage plate into my bag on the way out. I just adore them and will begin looking for some of my own (since I can't snitch yours) LOL

I can picture a table being set like this in a Provence home…just lovely with all the color.
