Wow, this is probably the longest I have gone without doing a post...I have been busy painting, the dining room, from a pale yellowy/green to an off white, an old hoosier, a sideboard and the kitchen. Well the kitchen is started, but far from being done. Actually, the dining room doesn't look much different in these photos from before I painted! I am looking for new drapes and fabric for the chairs.
The inspiration for this table came about several months ago when I found these interesting aqua flatware. Yes, they are plastic, but very heavy. The foundation for the table are lime, white and aqua placemats from my friend, Kathleen, 4 or 5 years ago paired with aqua napkins/napkin rings.
Starting at the bottom of the stack are the white wood chargers, then an aqua dinner plate, aqua luncheon plate, white salad plate and finally an apple shaped aqua dessert dish.
The clear lemonade glasses are holding fun peacock/white straws.
The centerpiece is a large artichoke candle on an aqua dessert pedestal with smaller artichoke candles circling the base.
I lightly distessed the hoosier, but it is hard to tell with all the glare.
Thanks for visiting today, hope you will come back next time.
