Plaid and Cabbage!

I recently found this bright green plaid tablecloth...what I didn't count on was it being a very lightweight wool. I sprayed it with water to get wrinkles out...instead it puckered up!

Black napkins with yellow woven napkin rings seemed to go best with the table.

When I first saw the colors I knew I would be using the bright yellow Secla cabbage dishes that I practically stole from Savers a couple years ago!

Starting with black woven chargers I added a white Royal Stafford dinner plate. To this I added a green depression type salad plate topped with the Secla cabbage individual covered soup bowls.

The yellow handled flatware is vintage Oxford Hall, pattern is Perfectionware.

I used black stemware...think it is Libby, but don't know for sure.

The centerpiece is a large cabbage tureen holding the gazpacho; green wood candle holders with chunky white candles and the dessert which is a zucchini blueberry cake with lemon buttercream icing.

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

Stunning! I just love your table settings. I'm crazy about the cabbage dishes - wish we had stores that sold such great dishes. Everything goes so well together.

I love the colors, everything looks stunning. What luck to find this beautiful plaid tablecloth. The green, yellow, and black colors are perfect for setting the black chargers with the white dinner plates. The yellow tureen cabbage bowls on the green plates are simply beautiful together.

What happy, happy yellow cabbage dishes those are! They need to be on display all the time! I adore them.
Sorry the wool puckered! Hate things like that. It sure makes for a bright and cheery table!

I would absolutely love to have your cabbage bowls. I have a great idea for how to use them. I admire your fearlessness when it comes to using color.


Ohhhh, love those cabbage bowls and the pretty fish plates too!
Love your photos.
Have a great weekend.

Waving hello! It's been so long, I'm not sure you remember me. I love the combination of the bright yellow with the green and black. It is just delightful! I have never seen cabbage bowls like this. They are so much fun. Love this color combination! I hope you are well.

Hi Marigene,

I honestly never would have thought to use these colors together, but they look great!! I just love tartan plaids, and this color combination really pops! Your yellow cabbage bowls are sooo pretty, and they look perfect with the flatware and woven napkin rings. You always set such pretty and festive tables, Marigene. I've really fallen behind in my tablescaping this year -- just too many other things going on.

I hope you're having a good summer and hope you have a great week!
