Lavender and Roses
The inspiration for today's table came from the Solymod tablecloth made in France. I found it hiding amid some rather ugly tablecloths at Savers back at the end of winter. At first glance I almost walked on by, but I saw a hint of yellow and bluish purple, so I moved the uglies away to see if this was anything I would take home. I was quite surprised to see it was a really pretty one. Who doesn't like yellow roses and lavender? I had to look up the brand, which I wasn't familiar with...it turns out to be a fairly pricey linen.
I did a very simple luncheon table with a minimum of dishes! I tried it with yellow and white dishes, but thought it was too much yellow. So, out came the lavender Bordallo plates.
The lavender glassware was bought a few years ago on sale at Pier One.
I am sorry I dug up my huge lavender plants the end of summer last year to add roses along the front walk. I couldn't find yellow roses at the grocery, so I chose yellow daisies and purple alstroemeria. I knew there was absolutely no chance of finding lavender!
Thanks for visiting today, hope you will come back next time.
