Orange Easter Tablescape for One

Orange is not a typical color that most people would use for Easter, but if you follow our regular blog "The Welcomed Guest" [], you know that Pat loves color. She suggested using the melon colored charger as the starting point in this tablescape.

The orange and yellow napkin ring is from Pier 1

Clear acrylic flatware allows the placemat to show through

I love both of these glasses - olive green and orange - what a flashback to the 1970's!

Orange ceramic carrots from Tuesday Morning

Individual salt and pepper shaker on a crystal tray
First layer of the placesetting is a vintage white napkin around an olive green one

The melon colored salad plate is Color Moods by Cris d'Arques

Next layer is Pat's Centura by Corning (her Wedding pattern more than 40 years ago)

The melon colored charger that started it all

Inexpensive acrylic flatware is by Cambridge
A white milk glass vase is perfect for the orange flowers
