Since I’ve been posting about trends and color palettes, I thought I’d pull from one of them for this table. One thing for sure, it’s lots closer to winter than the last one I posted! Luckily I had enough tableware and linen on hand to work with the colors.
The navy cloth is actually a sheet; whatever works right? Once again I used the placemat and charger combo to make room for the dinnerware, cutlery and napkin to all fit. The use of the charcoal rattan charger also added a little texture.
What I love most about this dinnerware is its versatility. The neutral color and clean design lend it to endless combinations. Many years ago I sold Avon and that’s where I got the deep burgundy goblets. I paired them with a plain goblet that could be used for water or wine. This palette doesn’t rank high on the vibrancy scale so I added gold tone flatware for some needed shine along with the bronze taper holders and mercury glass vases which flank the centerpiece.
My favorite part of this table is the centerpiece. What started out as flowers in the larger bowl, morphed into this three tiered arrangement reminiscent of a tiered wedding cake. Once I had the centerpiece in place the wheels really started turning. This is one of the most overused clichés’ on the planet but, “the possibilities with this one are endless!” I am really looking forward to using this on my cake and dessert tables.
This table was also put together in celebration of my 60th birthday which was on the 17th. Thankfully the faux flower cake was calorie free because what followed certainly was not. I’ll be sharing those pictures real soon. I’m also sharing this table at the following parties this week:
