Tablescape Thursday

I was in a pale mood yesterday and decided to set the dinner table accordingly. A pale blue damask tablecloth (given as a wedding present to my husband's parents over 50 years ago), white plates, clear glasses and pale green napkins.

Here I changed the plant and it's in a pale blue pot that works well with the wash of greens and blues. The moss, the nest, empty but for one feather and candles add to the calm pale look I was hoping for. But they give it a bit of texture too.


Another angle on the same scene. Colour - it's everywhere in life - think about "a green thumb," "red rage," "in a blue mood," - I'm so glad God made the world in colour and not black and white (although I love high contrast, too).

Tablescapes are a fun way to play with colour. Visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for more wonderful ideas.

  13. Hi Lori,

    I am playing catch up...again.
    Beautiful table setting.

    Spring has come and gone here. We've hit the 100's but it is supposed to cool down a bit. I am never ready for an Az summer.

    Your caddy is fantastic. I can see that on my patio!

    have a blessed weekend.

    love ya,
    Barb
