Mikasa Leopard Dishes and Pink Polka Dot Tablescape



I know this is my second table in a row to use leopard dishes, but I wanted to show how versatile they are. I wanted to try pink polka dot and leopard.
I think I like the combo. What do you think--have I totally flipped?

The end settings have a gold and a pink glass and the center settings have gold/green glasses. I like to use different colors on the two ends. I originally used all green because I started with a very wild tablecloth (I will show that at the end of this post).
The little pink birdhouses with cheetah skin tops are whimsical name holders. I have found that people just love to see their name on the dinner table. 
It also alleviates guests standing around and asking where they should sit.


This is the tall candle in the center.

Here is the original tablecloth that inspired the color scheme.  I love this animal print/floral tablecloth!

Unfortunately it was just too busy (even for me!) and I had to take the whole table apart to swap it with the solid pink cloth you saw above.

Maybe I could use the leopard dinner plate and top it with a solid color............I do have some solid orangish salad plates shaped like a flower......I wish I would have thought to try them before I tore this table apart! 

I am Linking to Marty's Tabletop Tuesday.  So head on over there with me to see what everyone else has for this week.

May next table will be a Cinco de Mayo table -- I love working with those bright colors!

You're right that people like to see their names. I think it also tells them that you're delighted that they're there. Very welcoming! Fun table!

Nice job. I love leopard print anything, and the pink polka dot just gave it that extra little zing.

That's some motivational stuff. Didn't know that judgments could possibly be this varied. Nice one for the whole set of enthusiasm to consider such helpful information here.
