More April Cornell!


 The inspiration came from napkins and tablerunner. I have had the napkins for over a year, but recently acquired the tablerunner. It was a hard choice on which of the colors I would pull from the fabric, in the end it was the mocha, yellow and aqua.


 I started each placesetting with the Pier One white scalloped wood chargers. To that I added a mocha Gracious Goods dinner plate and topped it with a yellow Bordallo cabbage leaf luncheon plate.



The flatware is vintage Lifetime Cutlery Old Homestead.


The aqua glassware is very inexpensive, like in a dollar each from Dollar Tree...but the color goes perfectly with the linens.


The centerpiece are brown metal pillar candle holders, which will be painted white, soon; aqua candles and an aqua wood compote filled with pine cone "zinnias" that I crafted. I need to find some larger, flatter bottomed pine cones to do more. Do you think they resemble zinnias?



The rim shot!




Thank you for visiting today...come back next time.

I will be joining

Oh I love this one - so nice and cool for summer (late spring). Those pine cone zinnias are one of the cleverest things I've seen. Maybe I'll make some - so clever. I have the same bamboo flatware but haven't used it in a table setting yet. Love this one - the colors are wonderful.

Marigene,
I adore this table! The colors are wonderful and you have chosen such pretty tableware - each piece in the plate stack has such personality. I cannot believe that you actually made those zinnias. I saw some similar ones on Facebook, but never considered doing them myself. You are a wonder - they are gorgeous!

This is one beautiful table setting and the linens are absolutely exceptional!
Marigene, you are one craft Lady! What a precious idea to make "zinnias," from pine cones!!
Love them!

Have lovely weekend,

You pulled all the perfect colors together form your runner, Marigene, to make such a pretty table. The vintage flatware is wonderful and I love how the runner shows through the Dollar Tree glass. Those zinnias are too cute for words!!! Great job!

I love all these table linen colors, Marigene. They would have blended very well with the plates that I used too. Beautiful and cheerful table!....Christine

I love the pinecone zinnias - they are so clever! Beautiful table Marigene, the colors that you pulled from the April Cornell runner and napkins are lovely together. I especially love the mocha colored dinner plates, the perfect color to use with the aqua glasses and the yellow BP cabbage plates.

Judy Biggerstaff said...

Good choices. I always love April Cornell's tablecloths, runners and napkins. Great little zinnias too.

OMG, I was a florist for 19 years and I knew as soon as I laid eyes on your centerpiece that the pine cones were meant to look like a flower. Brilliant and beautiful, you are a very smart lady!!!
