What The Sea Looks Like
For Tablescape Thursday, with Susan of Between Naps On the Porch, I am using shades of aqua.
You can click on each photo to enlarge it.
When I purchased the salad plates I thought they matched the dinner plates, but they are lighter and the border is washed with a sepia color, but they do look great together. I chose a pale creamy yellow tablecloth instead of white and of course, I couldn't find anything in aqua for napkins...I could have sworn I had some!
The little birds are wool, wood and birch bark wings...their face looks more like a mouse than a bird to me! The pitcher matches none of the dishes but is in the same family of blues so I had to have it.
A little pressed glass compote with a sauce ladle.
A domed cake plate with aqua orbs is being used as the main centerpiece.
I like the looks of mismatched silverplate so I have used it, once again.
