I tried a couple of different glasses and finally decided on these two.
I try to use this hydrangea tablecloth when I have fresh hydrangeas to use for a centerpiece. I clipped these three from my garden.
I put just one hydrangea in each container. Did you notice these are the same candle holders turned vases that I used last weekend?
The pink rose candles are just about the same shade as the fringed-edge pink napkins.
It's a quick summer table that would be perfect for a ladies luncheon.
It's pretty calm. But I think this table runner will perk it up a bit.
I think the turquoise animal print in the stars will work nicely with my turquoise-rimmed dinner plates atop the dark brown metal charger. Then I added the wild print plates which are the star of this table.
I thought these candle holders would work nicely, but not as candle holders. I wanted to use fresh flowers, but I already had a huge candle for the center of the table. So I decided to use these holders as fresh flower vases.
They worked great with one on each side of the centerpiece.
I added some metal orbs around the candle.
I chose these glasses to carry on the brown/gold tones.
When the glass was filled it worked nicely with the orange flowers.
The table is large and I used the end to stack the coffee cups so they were available when dessert was served.
It also went nicely with the big bouquet of lilies I made yesterday.
I used my golden yellow marbled glass charger.
Then I spent a moment studying the tablecloth colors to decide which color dinner plate to use.
It was a quick and cute breakfast table.
After breakfast I noticed a blueberry stain on the tablecloth. I thought I would tend to it immediately with this stain remover that I have used successfully on many clothing items.
The chemicals immediately ate right through the fabric. I mean like instantly.
There was no hole here before I tried to remove the stain. This lovely old tablecloth has survived over half a century and I ruined it in less than one minute. *Big Sigh* I can't bear to throw it away. I am thinking I can still use it if I cover the hole with a big bowl of fruit or something.
Tonight I plan to use these new wild plates for a dinner table. I will post it in a few days.
I hope you all enjoy the remainder of your weekend.
I thought I would show a few of the different tables I have done with the same cobalt blue dinner plates.
I think cobalt, pink and orange would be a good combo. I don't recall doing that one before, but I can't really be sure. Perhaps I will try it this weekend.
Do any of you have a picture you have done of that color combination?
I pulled out my big martini glass vase and filled it with matching marbles and some water.
I then went outside and cut down all the white peonies that I had left in my garden.
After a good swishing of each peony head in a bucket of water (to remove the ants/bugs), I started filling the vase with them. The marbles worked great to hold the flowers in place.
I used a cobalt blue dinner plate and a green salad plate atop a heavy silver charger. The blue Chinese patterned egg cup was added to hold a flower at each place setting.
I decided I liked the bold punch of color the dayliles added.
A cobalt glass holds a crisp white linen napkin in one of my favorite folds.
A few cobalt blue bottles will be great to hold beverages. I added crystal toppers in each bottle.
Here is a smaller pic in case the big one is cut off on your screen.
Thank you for stopping by to see another of my tablescapes.
