Aqua & Orange Tablescape

The tablerunner I made a few weeks ago was the beginning for today's table.

I had these dishes in mind when I made the runner.
A trip to the glass cabinet revealed some Atlas Capri dot aqua glasses that were a good match.

Unfortunately they are not stemmed, but the color is right one so I used them. I really need to find some aqua-stemmed glasses.

I was not in the mood to make a flower bouquet today, so I just grabbed the big hurricane candle from the top of the curio cabinet. I was hoping I had some orange napkins and sure enough I found some. They went inside the glass to add height. The candle needed a little spiffing up so I added some marbles.
I used napkin holders to hold a computer-printed menu. It added another layer to the place setting without obscuring the flower shape of the plate.

I like the peach tablecloth with this runner. I added a small aqua candle holder on each side of the big one and the the table was ready for dinner.


Thanks for stopping by.



Enjoy all of the other tables today.

Beautifully done. I think you have a great excuse to flea shop for those perfect stemmed glasses, but your blue ones certainly looked perfect with your tablescape :)
