Aqua and Chartreuse Tablescape

This is the Green Appletini table from this previous postwith the addition of one other color. In this case it's aqua. I added an aqua glass and a small aqua rimmed plate.

The tablecloth is the same. Doesn't it remind you of a 1920's flapper dress?




I bought these two ornaments in the after Christmas sale at Big Lots ($3 for the box
of 2). I plan to use the aqua one in a tree top arrangement next year. I also bought the fabric for a tree skirt, but Christmas is months away, so I am having a little fun using it for tablescapes.

I anchored the aqua finial in a candlestick. Flanked by two silver candles it became the centerpiece.

I scattered aqua marbles around to bring in a bit more of that color.


With just those few changes, I have a different table.


Would you call that green chartreuse? I am not sure...


Check out all the other tablescapers at Susan's blog on Thursday . Have fun!

Fun table! The fabric does remind me of a flapper! I love aqua and green together. The marbles are a nice touch, especially around the base of the centerpiece!!! :D Jewel

Looks great. You could even put a boa around the middle to take the theme even further. Wouldn't it be great to have a dinner where '20s attire would be the dress code. What a smart table. I haven't got the pictures from my table my sister took at my art show...my table came out cute. It was hot aqua and lime green. My table cloth was cheap...(Thanks 99 cents store). Right now I'm working with my friend on her daughter's tea...she wants to be tonned down...I want to go crazy

Hi CJ, Susan, and Dani,
Thanks so much for the kind words.

Lorrie,
What a great idea to have a 1920's attire party! My tablecloth was cheap, too. I love cheap!

After reading your comment yesterday, I decided to google a video of the napkin fold & save myself an hour of taking pictures & posting. I added the video to my TT post.

I too, love this color combo, chartreuse being one of my favorites. Is some of the old glass called vaseline glass?
You would so win at the Philly Flower Show as they do have tablescaping competitions too!
