This mosaic oriental lady was the inspiration for today's table.
I started with a cobalt blue dinner plate on the backside of the vivid star table runners I showed in my last post. No chargers - but oh, how I wish I had olive green chargers! Mental note to keep an eye out for such (though I have never seen olive green chargers).
These rust-colored salad plates formed the second, and what I thought would be the last layer.
I fanned a rust napkin in cobalt stemmed glasses.
What could make a better centerpiece than my recent 70% off oriental bust vase filled with tulips that my sweet husband presented me with when I came in the door from work? I guess the tulips also inspired the table. If he had not given them to me, I would not have had to find a vase and not done a table at all.
I also scattered some votives in lotus flower holders and three higher levels of candles in the back corners.
I think that pretty much finishes the table. I snapped a few pictures to do this post. I thought the table looked a little bare and needed something. After looking at the lady again, I decided I needed to add a bit of olive green.
I think that finishes it off nicely. The coffee cups and saucers not only provide the green color, but will be used to hold the egg drop soup.
