Tablescape Thursday

Sharing this post at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday!

 Check out lots of great ideas for your table settings over there.

I recently hosted a dinner for my brother’s birthday and had a lot of fun designing the tablescape.  Since it was the weekend before Fat Tuesday I decided to go with a purple/green/yellow  theme.  I knew it would probably be easy to find flowers in those colors so headed to Whole Foods and was not disappointed…

I had fun arranging in several small vases and adding votive candles in between…

I ran out to look for some other accents and found the green place mats which reverse to a green and white lattice pattern also…

I had the rattan chargers, white plates and McCarty pottery bowls and when I found the Juliska Country Estate salad plates I knew they were just the thing to finish off the look…

Since there were four for dinner I like to use the sofa to seat two rather than seating on the sides and ends of the table. It just seems more intimate and cozy and the sofa with its down cushion is so comfortable…

seating this way also does away with any worry about being able to see each other over the flowers…

the advance preparation also meant an easy going enjoyable evening for the hostess…
