One Of April's Best!




I think by now everyone knows that my favorite color for tablescapes is aqua, I have mentioned it enough times! The inspiration for this table came from an April Cornell tablecloth I found at TJMaxx back when the weather was still cold, can't say snowy, as we didn't get snow this past winter! This is one of my favorite tables, lots of aqua and orange. I really like this tablecloth, so many nice summer colors.  I paired the cloth with plain aqua napkins.


The plate layer begins with the Pier One white wood chargers, then an orange Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage charger, an aqua Mexcera cabbage dinner plate, and finally a gold kidney shaped Bordallo Pinheiro salad plate. I have also used Hoenig of California aqua apple dishes to hold the rolls.





The glassware is Pioneer Woman can be found at WalMart.




The cute little metal candle holder is from Hobby Lobby last year. I found the aqua candles at Goodwill several years ago


This cute little bowl was found at Goodwill several years ago.


I found this aqua pitcher at TJMaxx when I first started blogging in what seems like years ago!





The mums and alstroemeria were the only two orange bouquets I could find at the market the other day. Surprisingly they look pretty good together.





Thanks for visiting today. I hope you will come back next time.

Wow, Marigene!! I love this huge splash of color! It definitely gives a summertime feel. Now you just need a beach house with a covered porch to have a great meal using this setting!! Aqua always makes me happy. And it really does go great with the orange! Very festive!

I never thought of a better color combo! Good for you! I love your glasses among a gazillion other things. Someday you have to divulge where you keep all of your treasures!

I've missed you! I'm a bad blogger that keeps thinking of taking a break but plows on. I hope to catch up! :)

Aqua is my favorite color Marigene, and wow this table is a burst of summer! The colors compliment each other beautifully, and the plate stack is a wow all it's own! Don't you love the new PW collection? I have bought a couple of things, I love the way it mixes and matches. Happy summer!

Your aqua tablescape is so cheerful and happy, Marigene. You have the prettiest dishes and coordinating pieces. The orange color is the perfect complement to the aqua.

April Cornell has the prettiest linens,he colors are fantastic. So taking this cloth and setting this table, well you've done it again!! I love the pops of orange and the aqua together. I have those same apple bowls and I love them. I'm glad you continue to set such lovely tables, you inspire me to hopefully set a pretty table soon.

You picked up all the colors in the pretty table cloth. Walking into your dining room with the table set like this just has to make you smile.

Scribbler said...

You have done it again! Maybe this one is my favorite now. I have those same glasses, so we both have great taste!

Judy Biggerstaff said...

Oh my, your table is just gorgeous. You know how much I love aqua too, plus love April Cornell's tablecloths. I certainly wish I had seen this tablecloth at TJ Maxx. Plus you have used my favorite dishes (BP) for your table. So you know how much I am enjoying your table. You have many more pieces of BP than me so I am really eyeing your collections. You have certainly brightened my day, thanks.

Love everything. You've hit on my latest fave color combo. I've loved aqua for a long time, and I recently saw orange and aqua together and immediately started thinking about a new color scheme in my house. ;)
