I'm joining in the Tablescape Thursday party this week, hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. There are some amazing tables put together each week by a lot of talented folks out there in BlogLand so be sure and drop by BNOTP to check out all the great tablesettings.
Choosing colors to combine is much like children playing on a playground....some play well together and some do not. I love the muted tones set by a brown and green color combination and with a pop of creamy white to set the stage.
I never realized how hard it is to get a full table shot of a large Dining table, so I've done the best I can.
I like doing full centerpieces with my tablescapes and really filling the area with differant items to provide an interesting focal point. This week, a Hemingway Hurricane vase and a footed Charleston Cake Plate from Southern Living at Home are filled with fruits and cheeses and complimented by a small Cupcake Cloche and florals in a silver compote and all resting on a glass mat and framed by two silver and glass candle holders.
The rattan chargers add contrast to the crisp ivory of the linen placemat and Gibson place setting.
Napkins are Harvest Melody and purchased at Marshalls. Burnished copper napkin rings are from Pier 1.
Love the sparkle of my Emerson Stemware from Southern Living at Home.
Flatware is Camden from Reed and Barton.
What's better than a warm crusty loaf of bread resting on a silver tray.
After-dinner coffee served from a white set found at a yard sale.
Hope you enjoyed and come back real soon, ya hear.
All the best,
