Vintage Fruit Tablecloth

This is my favorite vintage tablecloth. The cloth is in lovely shape with vibrant colors.


I put the cloth on the table and then tried to find items to use. The first glasses that came to mind were these heavy purple-stemmed goblets. I also knew the centerpiece would start with this item. But now what?
My original thought was to add flowers to the centerpiece. After looking at the cloth for inspiration, I decided on a simple arrangement of fresh peaches and faux grapes.
Then I pulled some light yellow plates, purple salad bowls and a different fruit-themed salt & pepper shaker for each place setting.
I used a couple of fruit candles along with some votives on the opposite side.
I added a purple/red napkin under each salad bowl and the table was complete.

It took about 15 minutes to do this table.

It is lovely. The tablecloth is so pretty and so are the stems and the fruit bowl. Beautiful color. I really like all the different salt and pepper shakers. This would have taken me hours, not 15 minutes. Hugs, Marty

Wow-so coordinated! Love the salt and pepper shakers too. They would so snap you up in a fine dept. store to do their displays! Wouldn't you have fun too!

I found the same cloth at a yard sale. But it has what appear to be rust stains :( Your arrangement is very nice, and reminds me I have a card table I could use with this cloth.
