Red, Orange and Yellow makes a Bright Table for the Spring Season

div>I started this table with a wavy striped sun gold tablecloth. Those wavy stripes would give me a headache if I had to look at them for very long. Luckily the other elements will cover and break the waviness of the first layer. I needed something bright, but without a pattern so it would not detract from the pinwheel table runner accented with buttons that I made last week
Everything else on the table was selected from the table runner colors. It was quite easy for me to find items in those colors. I started with my red chargers.
I added golden yellow dinner plates.

I topped the dinner plates with orange flower-shaped salad plates.


I decided that gold-toned flatware and red goblets would look nice on this bright table.

I noticed that the dining room wall print has all of the same primary colors as the table. I did not even plan this table around the print. Sometimes it's effortless......



I had this yellow teapot filled with flowers sitting in a different room. I just moved it here and had a centerpiece with no work at all. I tossed the complementary chair covers on the chair backs and the basic elements were all set.



I decided that these big yellow plaid napkins (really dish towels that I bought years ago to use as napkins) would work well. I wasn't sure where to put them until I remembered that I had purchased some gold watering cans to use for this purpose at least year's end of summer sales. I was pretty surprised that I remembered where I had stored them!
I think they worked nicely. I added two cookies in the watering can for just a touch of sweetness to end the meal.


And there you have it...a quick colorful table to celebrate the season.


Doesn't the spinach salad look good on the orange plate?

I think I will get a lot of use from these plates.
