We have also been looking at places for my daughter to live in town. We are just checking out her options, I think she will be here until around the first of the year, saving money hopefully!! After that, watch out, I'll be free as a bird!
My tablescape today is outside. I know what you are thinking. It's hotter than the hinges of well, you know. But today is actually cooler, in the 90s, a little bit less humidity, and around January or February, I'll be wishing for these sunny days. So I braved the heat, and took my table outside by the pool.
I started with this blue tablecloth that I purchased a few weeks ago at HomeGoods on sale. I love blue, it seems that you can use blue with every other color. And I think that is true with this tablecloth, so I paired it with a burnt orange color that was also in the salad plates.
The tablecloth is 'Le Telerie Toscane', made in Italy (I have no idea what that means--something Tuscany?) Anyway, it is linen and cotton and a beautiful design and color.
The dinner plates are Ralph Lauren, I used these same plates in the tablescape you can see here.
The salad plates are Pegasus (for obvious reasons) by Mikasa. I have an entire set of this that I purchased from a friend. The colors in this plate were my inspiration for this table.
I used burnt orange napkins, seems they changed color a bit in my photos. I found these cute little napkin rings on sale (99 cents) at Bed, Bath, and Beyond while I was supposed to be buying dorm room stuff lol!
I wouldn't mind having a bracelet like that! Jewelry for the table!!
I liked the design of this piece I purchased last year at auction. I had been searching for epergnes and I finally found several, which I immediately bid on and won. Read about my other epergne here.
I wanted to fill the side cups with fruit, but ran out of time, so I used some ivy, a white pillar candle, and some burnt orange grapes I found at TJ Maxx.
The center vase is filled with glads and baby's breath.
I also used two silver candleholders with bobeches,
Crystal is Crown Point by Gorham.
Sterling is by Lunt.
Yes, I'm trying to hide the basketball hoop with a fern.
Thanks for stopping by! If, by chance I get some candlelight shots, I will put them in a new post. I'm off to see 'The Help' tonight--can't wait!! In case you didn't notice, I totally forgot to put chairs around the table. Oh well, one for the blooper file!! I always appreciate your kind comments!!
