Paisley and Palms

For a couple years I have been trying to figure out what to use with this Enokhi tablecloth when, a few weeks ago I came across the green salad plates at Savers. I knew they would match perfectly as I have looked at the tablecloth weekly trying to figure out what to put with it. Green being my favorite color, I decided to do this table with just a little white. Simple as it is, it is one of my favorites.
I just looked Enokhi brand up on eBay, they are quite pricey, in the same range as April Cornell. They have that same feel and style as her fabrics, too.

The two-toned napkins are held with green beaded napkin rings.

The dinner plates, which I am using as chargers are by Sauvignon and the pattern is West Indies. Each plate has a different palm tree. I actually bought them for the shape and the rims knowing the center would be covered.

The next layer is what we use as the dinner/luncheon plate. It has no markings on the back.

The final plate is a beautiful apple green. The only markings on the back are Made in Portugal. They are fairly heavy, nothing like BP plates.

The flatware is a cream colored Oxford Hall Fashion Wear. It looks yellow in some of the pictures, but trust me it isn't.

The glassware is a simple olive green stem.

The centerpiece is a piece of pottery filled with, what else, but...Granny Smith apples flanked by candles.

The rim shot.

Thanks for taking the time to visit come back next time. I just noticed this is my 300th post!

I will join Christine at Rustic & Refined for Table It!

The dishes you've used perfectly compliment that gorgeous tablecloth!! I love greens and now that I think of it, I don't have much. Smart to have gotten those palm tree dishes for the think ahead!

Happy 300th post! :)

Marigene, isn't it amazing that you have done 300 posts and the majority were tables! That's a lot of table settings. This table is so pretty! xo

Wow…congratulations on three hundred posts, that is a milestone. I smiled when I saw your table all done in green, it is perfect for this time of year. When I look out my windows now that spring has finally arrived, all I see is a sea of green leaves on our apple trees. I like your new header, by the way.

Amazingly gorgeous green dinnerplates!
Perfect compliment to your beautiful tablecloth!
I adore the flatware in this tablescape, unique and gently carved detailing.
Congratulations on your 300th post, dear friend!!!

What a colorful table - so spring-like and lovely.

First...LOVE that flatware! What a neat design with that little knob thingy on the end! I'd spend the whole meal just playing with the flatware! :-)

The tablecloth design ROCKS! It reminds me of something in Greece or Italy or somewhere like that. It's cool! I can't believe you've held onto this for 2 years!!! I understand, though...I do the same thing just waiting for that "right thing" to come along to go with stuff!

I hope the storms haven't caused a lot of havoc over your way. We had some small branches to come off trees, but that was about it. Up the street a couple of blocks, though, a tree was split in half and the bark stripped right off the trunk! It was pretty spectacular to see! Sad to lose that tree on the parkway, though.

Have a great weekend!!!

Congrats on 300 posts. The palm dishes are so cute, especially with your lovely tablecloth. Makes me feel good to visit and see your wonderful settings. Happy Friday

The way you put plates together always inspires me, but I can never pull it off like you do. I think I need a Savers in my town. Those green salad plates are great, and I love the way the decoration on the edge lines up with the decoration on the pretty charger plate. When I first saw the table, I was sure that was an AC cloth. I've never heard of Enokhi brand. It's beautiful. laurie


You always make the most fabulous tablescapes and this one is no exception! I love ALL your dishes in such a pretty green and lovely shapes. Your table is so fresh and crispy, along with the gorgeous linen as well.
The painting I have are rosters jumping at the sound of maracas, which a funny roos plays them, lol! The artista is very famous here. He has great colors in his paintings.
Thanks for yuour wonderful visit marigene!

What a beautiful pattern on the tablecloth, Marigene! I can see why they'd be expensive. Your palm plates look perfect with it. Congrats on your 300th post :)

Marigene, I loved the layering of your plates. The palm trees are so cool. I feel very inspired to look for plates with decorative edges. Congratulations on your 300th post. You must dream of tablescapes, because I know I have started too.

Cynthia Landrie said...

My daughter is a big fan of green and would just love this table setting. I am a big fan of the flatware!

Christine Graves said...

Gorgeous colors of green, just love it. I also like that you do the "rim shot" photo....that is always hands down one of my favorite shots too take with a camera!

Thanks so much for linking up with me at the Table It Link Party and on the new party coming tomorrow morning this table will be the feature as highest viewed so congratulations!

Your green colors on this tablescape are just stunning and you've gathered together the perfect items to showcase your cloth. I particularly like the rustic container with the brown and green banding as I think it grounds the green beautifully. Lovely!
