Then I decided that the white tablecloth was too white and detracted from my citrus theme.
I found this peach-colored tablecloth that I liked better. It was all wrinkled so I had to iron it. Then I removed everything from the table, tossed on the new covering and reset it all (it only took a few minutes).
Who drinks liqueurs at dinner?
I am sure some people do, but not anyone in my world.
Still I think that these little glasses are so darn cute that I just have to buy them whenever I see a color that will go with dishes I own.
Just because they were made to hold a shot of booze, does not mean they must do so.
At least not on my dining table.
These little golden beauties became teeny tiny flower vases for daffodils from my garden. I love having a little bouquet at each place setting. They can be set to the side once dinner is ready to be served.
I used green napkins under the salad plate.
In a perfect world, I would have had dozens of oranges, limes and lemons to fill a tall glass container for the center of the table.
Unfortunately my world is not perfect and all I could find was this green candle holder that is too small. But the nice limey yellow Vaseline candle sticks worked great with lighter yellow candles. Just imagine that there is a tall glass holder full of citrus fruits and that my candle is not leaning to the side . :)
I added a couple of little lime green votives.
which completed the table.
The food brought in a bit more orange with the carrots flanking a savory crescent chicken roll. The green of my freshly-picked chives were the perfect garnish (if do say so myself).
I just love having food garnishes growing on the deck right outside my door. Next to these chives, I have some pineapple mint which should be up and ready soon.
